The Boy Who Lived

The Boy Who Lived-By Courtney Kellogg

Our last stop on this trip has ended in the lovely city of London. I was actually very excited to head back to the place where we first began. The city is so big that there’s always something to look at and explore. 

This weekend ended our 4 day vacation and I treated myself to “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Part One and Part Two tickets. The play took place at Palace Theater in the heart of London. This play tells the story of Harry Potter’s child, Albus Potter, and his scary adventure involving a time turner. So many special effects were used during the play to make things seem very magical. The show was well worth my money and I hope someday I’m able to see it again!

Today was also filled with other Harry Potter things as a couple of friends and I traveled to Platform 9 & 3/4 at Kings Cross Station. A part of the series was filmed in the station and it was exciting to take a picture next to the sign!

Our day ended with a long train trip to Warner Brothers Studios where we got to visit The Making of Harry Potter. This tour brought us through numerous of sets used in the movie such as Gryffindor Common Room, The Forbidden Forest, and even Privet Drive. There were so many costumes and props to see that it was almost overwhelming. The tour ended with a small scale of Hogwarts that was used for filming. It was so incredible to see all the hard work that went into each movie. I couldn’t even wrap my head around everything that we were seeing! The best part of the trip was finding out that Emma Watson was at the studios the same time we were! We tried to find her but sadly failed. It would have been so awesome to meet her and tell her thank you for all she’s done!
