Warner Bros. Studio Tour London has kindly invited us to discover behind-the-scenes secrets of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to celebrate their special feature dedicated entirely to the fourth instalment of the magical film series.
Who could ever resist exploring the authentic sets, revealing secrets behind the characters, costumes and props that made the Goblet of Fire so special?

Well if you are a Harry Potter fan, then I would expect a similar reaction like from my 11-year-old when I revealed we were going back to her favourite Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.
Her happiness was beyond words when I told her she could also bring along two of her friends, who later confirmed I was the coolest mum in the world and that they definitely wanted to be bloggers too!
The Goblet of Fire
We loved seeing the Goblet of Fire with Harry Potter’s name popping out! After a nice presentation of the new addition to the Making of Harry Potter, we slowly enjoyed the other parts of the tour.
I love exploring the special effects and the behind-the-scenes secrets. The girls had loads of fun experiencing green screen technology flying a broomstick over London too.
Then Isabelle’s friends were very keen to step into the Forbidden Forest that she has told them about and loved it as much as we did.
Then we enjoyed some yummy hot meals, drinks and Butterbeer in the Backlot Café. I have to say the Butterbeer ice-cream is irresistible!
The tour ends with the absolutely breath-taking miniature scale model of Hogwarts castle. I can never get enough of exploring it bit by bit. What a masterpiece!
We love coming back, as there is so much to see and always something new to explore. Next week we have my friends from the Czech Republic coming over to stay with us. My friend’s daughter is also a huge Harry Potter fan.
Last year we did not book in advance so she was very disappointed. This time we were prepared and she is super excited. Cannot wait for her to start her Happy Potter adventure too.
