The Harry Potter Studio Tour Opens 4 Privet Drive for the First Time

       Every Harry Potter fan remembers the very first line in the very first book. "Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say they were perfectly normal, thank you very much." We also remember the house that was mentioned, Harry's childhood home. What if you could see it for yourself?

      Good news: now you can. The Harry Potter Studio Tour in London has opened the door of number four Privet Drive for the very first time. While you might see a lot of things you recognize inside, there will also be a few things that you don't recognize. For example, there is a certificate to Dudley Dursley, awarding him 'for always eating his lunch' (shocker, shocker). There's also another detail that all of us are familiar with. The scene where all of Harry's Hogwarts letters falling throughout the living room. Now you can see this scene in real ife - sort of. The individually designed Hogwarts letters are hanging from the ceiling to look as if they're falling.

    There are tons of other small details that the naked eye might have missed during the movies. To see them all, you're going to have to take a trip to London, England.

My opinion on this: if you have the opportunity, GO! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity because it is a limited-time event. Seeing the set would almost be like you were in Harry Potter. You'll get to see props that were in the movies and even some of the machinery that was used to make Harry Potter come to life.
