Guess what special day this was?!? It was the day we went to Warner Brother’s Studio to visit the Harry Potter sets!!!! SO EXCITING! and Super fun for me!!! It took over an hour on public transit to get there,but it was worth the trip! We took the overground to Watford Junction, then paid the 2pounds to for the express bus to the studio. We had an early entrance time 9:30am. Just a reminder for anyone wanting to go, please book your tickets in ADVANCE! They do sell out as they only want so many people entering the building. On the website it warns you that if you miss your entrance time, there is a chance they won’t let you in….although I’ve never heard of anyone missing an entrance time. We left at 7:30 in the morning to make our 9:30 am entrance. Am I a dedicated fan or what?
As you’re lining up to enter…the have the smallest set on display, which is Harry’s under the stairs room! It really is quite tiny… Further along, I’ll post some photos as I don’t want to give EVERYTHING away. If you’re a fan, you’ll just have to go and see for yourself!

After the amazing tour of the set, we headed out to Camden, a neighbourhood where we met up with my friend Ida, but we arrived a bit early, so we stopped by the Camden Lock Market, which is a few blocks away from the underground station. We needed a snack to tie us over, so we thought we’d try this place, stuffed tortillas. It’s not your typical tortillas, they’re fluffy. We had ours stuffed with Chorizo and cheese, which was pretty darn delicious!
After this greasy snack that Kent and I shared, we meet up with Ida and went to Poppies Fish and Chips for dinner! For about 15 pounds, you get a big plate of food!
The three of us ordered the exact same meal lol. Fish and Chips (cod) with a can of cream soda!
This is my friend Ida, and a great photo of us at the restaurant!
I’m not sure if there’s a live band playing all weekends, but on friday night there sure was! It was great! They were playing upbeat oldies songs, what a great atmosphere. Most of the staff were also dressed up for the time period of 1945-1955. Want to know more? Here’s their website: http://poppiesfishandchips.co.uk
After dinner we stopped by a nearby pub and grabbed a beer and just chatted away the evening away.
