Amazing, wheelchair accessible tour in Watford near London
We visited the Museum in September 2021 and we can definitely recommend the tour to everyone, even those that are not particularly into Harry Potter because it is truly amazing to see how the movie was made. The sets, costumes, props and special effects are amazing. There are some parts of the tour that might be more difficult to navigate in a wheelchair like cobbled Diagon Alley or spongy surface of Forbidden Forest, but in overall, the accessibility is fantastic and there is lots to see.
There are disabled toilets and a changing room with a hoist on site. Free disabled parking available, closed to the entrance. There is also a Sensory Room. Detailed accessibility information is available on the website Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter (wbstudiotour.co.uk) To get a free carer’s ticket, you need to call the Box Office and it will be added on (proof of entitlement will be required on entry). It takes a few hours to go round. There is a small part of the tour which is located outside.
Food and accommodation:
There are a few nice restaurants and cafes on site. Here is one of them, serving Butterbeer 😊
There are a few hotels nearby that offer wheelchair accessible rooms, for example Premier Inns. It also has a great train connection from Watford Junction station to London Euston (about 40 min on the train). We decided to drive to the Studio Tour, stay in Watford overnight and then had a day trip to London by train.
