The official Warner Bros Studio website normally gets sold out first BUT…. they do sometimes release last minute tickets for the Harry Potter Studio Tour a day or two before the departure date. These tickets include an entrance to the tour but do not include transportation. However, if you do find tickets, you can purchase separately return bus tickets to the Studios from Central London. Of course, waiting for the last minute to purchase tickets is always a risk, and you may walk away feeling disappointed!

What to Expect:
The Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour is one of the most popular and best-selling attractions for visitors to London. Because Warner Bros restricts the number of tickets available, the tours sell out fast and often well in advance. Having said that, last minute tickets are sometimes for sale, but you need to know where to look!
In principle, there are 5 different types of Harry Potter tours:
The first Harry Potter Warner Bros Tour is the most basic and includes an entrance ticket and shuttle bus service from London Victoria Station. Since its also the cheapest option it tends to get sold out fast, although lots of different entrance times are offered throughout the day.
The second option is to take a Harry Potter Warner Bros tour including a private taxi and entrance fees from London. This tends to have more availability than the first to, but is also a little more expensive. This tour does tend to have a greater number of last minute tickets available and is an excellent way seeing the Warner Bros Studios.
The third option is a fully guided tour of the studio, including return transportation from London. This is actually the only fully guided tour of the studios and the ticket also allows you reentrance into the studios after the guided tour has ended. So this option gives you greater flexibility and is perfect for those who are looking to go deeper into the understanding of Harry Potter’s mystery and magic! It also tends to be more expensive than the other options, BUT, you are also getting a greater service. Last minute tickets for this tour are often available.
The fourth way of scoring tickets is to purchase a hotel package. With this option, Harry Potter tickets are included as part of a deal that offers a stay in a hotel in Central London. If you are already going to stay in a hotel during your visit to London, and intend on doing some sightseeing within the capital, then this option makes a lot of sense.
The final type of tour that might have last minute tickets is one that combines a visit to the Harry Potter Warner Bros Studios with a tour of the Harry Potter sites in Oxford. The university town of Oxford was used several times in the filming of the Harry Potter movies and is a great addition that makes for a full day out from London for all the family.
