The tour costs a minimum of £51.50 and takes at least three hours to complete, which includes a full tour of the studio, picture opportunities and a chance to ask staff about the studio.

Since opening in 2012, the studio has had many expansions as well as offering a variety of events, including the Christmas event ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’, which transforms the sets into a Christmas wonderland for tourists to see.
