glad you enjoyed it. We are planning on going again in December because I know that we missed some of it. I also need to do it without the camera stuck to my face.

I found out about this by accident today, and I'm thrilled. My daughter pretty much grew up with Harry Potter and is a tremendous fan. I've already posted the link on her Facebook page for her to look at. This looks like a wonderful trip. We've discussed several times about how much we would love to visit England, and this may be enough to get us there!

I'm torn between going in the summer and in waiting until Christmas (would love to see London during Christmas!). Would anybody care to weigh in on those choices? TIA!

It is a fabulous...We visited the 2nd time the Saturday before Christmas and it was just as good..it was all done out for Christmas so the great hall looked festive and they put snow down in some places.

Personally I would come to the UK in the Summer (we sometimes do get one!!) as London in the wet and cold isn't fun!'s (it looks nothing like those Dicken's pictures) Thats my only reason though. They do timed tickets for HP tour but we got in an hour before at Christmas. We arrived early because we thought we'd do the shop first then do the tour but while we were in the shop they put a call out to say that anybody could go in. Spent another 3 hours in there and again could have stayed a lot longer. Well worth a visit as is London.

I was looking at places to stay in London (we usually rent something on VRBO.com when we travel since we like to have more room that a hotel room provides). It looks like a lot of the tourist type attractions would make the Kensington & Chelsea area a good place to stay. On the other hand, there are so many things we would like to see outside of London as well. It looks like I have a lot to research!

Thank you!

My daughter is a 25 year old pharmacist, but I think she would be thrilled to have this picture! She bought a wand and scarf when we were at Islands of Adventure to see the HP attractions.

My 23 year old daughter walked round IoA in her Gryffindor tie in 98 degree heat! Our Christmas present was a visit to Levesden in August, as we are in London anyway for a concert. Can't wait.

We were there a couple of Christmases ago when it was unseasonably cold - which really fit right in with the "snow" on the rooftops. My daughter's scarf actually came in pretty handy during the cold weather (of course, we had to be there for the early opening!).
