    I went there in November 2018 for my *cough* 30th *cough* birthday. It was my first time going there and I loved it! I discovered I missed a few things though as this guy told me to go round a particular way, so I missed some things my friend saw. The entire experience was amazing and I felt right at home there! I really loved the Forbidden Forrest - although it was quite loud in there which I didn't like. Meeting Buckbeak was great though! I also saw Aragogg - super scary! I took photos of pretty much everything so didn't really look at everything in detail - something I plan to do on my next visit! I loved sitting in Hagrid's motorbike, and kept my wand ready to fight off Voldemort and any Death Eaters who may have been following us! I dressed up in my Hufflepuff robes and took my wand! We visited Diagon Alley, Privet Drive and the Potter's house. Everything was all Christmassy which made it even more magical and I'd love to go back at another time of year to see what is there instead of the Christmas display!

    I honestly don't believe Harry is under a love potion. Her personality doesn't seem like she's do that. I DO think that Harry marrying Ginny was a convenient way for Harry, Ron and Hermione to stay together, but I think Harry genuinely loves Ginny. If he didn't, he wouldn't have broken up with her to protect her. Also I think Harry is bright enough to know if Ginny was brewing love potions. Not only that but Voldemort was conceived with a love potion and I don't JK Rowling would have her main hero the victim of something like that. Dumbledore says throughout the entire series that love is the strongest magic of all, and Harry has a lot of love for people. I also don't think the Weasley's would be particularly proud of their only daughter for only loving Harry with a potion!

    I've thought for a long time now that Harry, Ron and Hermione were put into the same house for convenience! Hear me out : First off, we know that the Sorting Hat took time for Hermione, and finally decided on Gryffindor. The hat also considered Ravenclaw but what about Hufflepuff?? Hermione was very loyal to Harry throughout the entire series. She sticks by him no matter what, even when Ron went into jealous fits and left Harry to deal with things by himself (examples - when Harry's name came out the Goblet of Fire and when hunting for Horcruxes) yet Hermione stayed to help Harry. She believed in him and was incredibly loyal to him - a trait associated with Hufflepuff. She broke rules to help the boys and lied about the troll making her become friends with Harry and Ron. I honestly believe Ron would have done better academically if he wasn't in Gryffindor - because being placed in the same house as all his brothers means he already has a reputation to live up to before he's barely even started there. I don't know what other house Ron could have belonged to - a small part of me thinks Slytherin but I don't think he has the right personality for being in Slytherin. Had he not felt he had to live up to the expectations based on his brothers all being in Gryffindor, there's a chance he could have done very well in Ravenclaw. As for Harry, my opinion on his house is divided. Although he proved to be brave, he was also loyal towards those he loved, even sacrificing himself at the end of Deathly Hallows. He even told Narcissa Malfoy that her son - a boy who'd basically bullied him for 6 years - was alive, which allowed her to lie to Voldemort about Harry's supposed death. He broke up with Ginny to protect her and her family, and didn't want his friends to die during the battle of the 7 Potters. But, he was also very brave! He is also fairly bright and probably would have done well in Ravenclaw! The Sorting Hat thought he'd do well in Slytherin, because of the part of Voldermort's soul that was in Harry. I don't think the Sorting Hat would have even considered Slytherin otherwise, and I certainly wouldn't have put him in Slytherin. Anyway, I do feel that JK Rowling put them all into the same house for convenience - had the three of them been in different houses I don't think they'd have been able to help each other much, and they probably wouldn't have been as close. Certainly Harry and Hermione needed to be in the same house to ensure they were able to help each other, and Harry wouldn't have got very far without her. I'd love to know what others think about this topic, because it has bugged me so much!

    The last time I went was in 2017 I think, this is when they announced The Forbidden Forest, before that it was the opening of The Hogwarts Express, so we managed to get some tickets on both opening days! Staff as usual are very friendly and informative, so much so that I had bumped into a slightly older gentlemen who was working there who absolutely loved what he did and that you could see he got an buzz out of it. This studio really is an experience to be had if you're fans of the books and the films, but I think that even those who have only watched the films will be amazed!! It is so much fun and gives you so much info on how the series was made and how every scene was constructed over the years with the attention to detail is just simply amazing. We tried the butterbear, I can't say that I liked it personally and the only way I can describe it is that it tastes like an Iron Bru float (Ice Cream), not that I've had one but it was a mixture of iron bru and vanilla ice cream, so weird.. Here are a few photos of Privet Drive and the Dursleys house, and the Hogwarts Express. Being able to go inside was great and really added to the experience. We've booked tickets again to go on the 6th April to visit Gringotts Bank and can't wait!

    Firstly, thank you for joining our community! Welcome to TheWizardingWorld. Now, in a few moments you will pass through these doors and join your classmates. But before you take your seats, you must be sorted into your houses. They are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. What are forums and how do they work? An Internet forum is a discussion area on a website. Website members can post discussions and read and respond to posts by other forum members. A forum can be focused on nearly any subject and a sense of an online community, or virtual community, tends to develop among forum members. This type of forum may also be called a message board, discussion group, bulletin board, or web forum, but it differs from a blog, the name for a web log, as a blog is usually written by one user and usually only allows for the responses of others to the blog material. A forum usually allows all members to make posts and start new topics. An Internet forum is also different from a chat room. Members in a chat room usually all chat or communicate at the same time, while members in a discussion group post messages to be read by others whenever they happen to log on. Forums also tend to be more topic-focused than chat rooms. The separate conversations in a forum are called threads, and they are made up of member-written posts. Members can usually edit their own posts, start new topics, post in their choice of threads, and edit their profile. A profile usually lists optional information about each forum member, such as the city they are located in and their interests. Here's what to expect and how you can get involved: So, you've joined TWW (The Wizarding World), First thing's first. Let's get to know you by creating an introduction post. Tell us about yourself, your love for all things Harry Potter and what got you hooked! After that, make your way around the community and after 10 substantive posts you can make your way to sorting hat to be sorted into your houses. While you are at TWW your triumphs will earn you House Points, while any rule-breaking will lose House Points. At the end of the year, the House with the most points is awarded the House Cup. Once you're sorted you'll be able to access the common rooms. If you recruit/recommend a member, you get 20 house points for each person you recruit/recommend to join. However, this person must be sorted for you to be rewarded, and they must mention that you referred them. You will earn 1 point per post, 1 point per reply and 1 point is awarded to the topic start for every reply. There are participation and winning points given to your house for entering contests. You can also be awarded bonus points for popular content!
