Clusters of poppies cascade from the walls of St Giles Church on Hyde Lane and along walls and the telephone box. It is absolutely beautiful and a fitting tribute to many brave souls who lost their lives- we will remember them.
The newly installed Platform 9 3/4 was a real treat of the tour because of the magnitude of the space and the train. Full size and puthering smoke for added effect. The ladies were all giggles when it came to pushing their trollies through the brick wall, taking a walk on the Hogwarts Express and getting a picture underneath the famously and strangely numbered platform. School starts soon so all aboard!
For one of the ladies at least, it was a walk on the dark side she was looking forward to on the Warner Studios Harry Potter Tour we recently went on. Lady TigerLilly is a proud Slytherin and delighted in the dark arts as she met with Death Eaters and declared “i’m a big fan!”.
Starring Oliver Mellor (Coronation Street), Marcus Hutton (Brookside) and Terri Dwyer (Hollyoaks)

Perhaps one of the most famous roads in London comes from the imagination of J.K. Rowling. Diagon Alley is where all the students of Hogwarts get there robes, wands, pet owls, and start much of their adventuring into a magical school year ahead. The ladies were fortunate enough to take a stroll down Diagon Alley as their Warner Studios Harry Potter Tour continues. Speaking of a magical school year, we also visited Headmaster extraordinaire, Dumbledore’s office. Spotted the Sorting Hat, pensieve and so much more! Dumbledore’s Office was a virtual treasure trove of moments from the seven novels brought to life by J.K.Rowling!
