Yikes...Clever ways to book Harry Potter Studio Tour (in 2017)?

DS has just announced he wants to scrap his birthday party plans and take a friend to the Harry Potter Studios instead. Sounded just about do-able until I looked into tickets - I can't see a free weekend slot in 2017 shock.

Does anyones know of a clever way around this that doesn't involve sickies or throwing lots more money at the problem- ?

Do any of the third party agents block book and then flog of tickets they can't sell as part of an accommodation package at the last minute etc etc?

Any advice would be gratefully received....

We're going in 2 weeks for dd bday I booked 6 months in advance.
Are there any half term or inset days you coud do? Inset days vary so that may be a good option
Otherwise would he be happy to have his birthday treat the next available weekend?
Or forget it for this year and do it next year?

You just need to keep trying, ideally first thing in the morning. They do release more and tours will give back underbooked tickets.

Thanks both. The news they release unsold tickets is a glimmer of hope!

They release a few tickets 6 days in advance, I think. I called them up and talked to them about what to do. I think they told me what time to book, but don't remember, maybe at about 6 am? If you look on the website early in the morning you might figure out the pattern, or you could phone and talk to a live person.
