What to Expect from London’s Harry Potter Studio Tour

What to Expect from London’s Harry Potter Studio Tour

I was six when the first Harry Potter book was published, ten when the films first hit the cinema and twenty-six when I first read the heptalogy. Preferring the world of Tracy Beaker (who has had a fictional child by the way), I was a little late to the game. But there’s no denying that the world of Harry Potter is timeless.
