Harry Potter Tour Part II

For Part I of the Tour, go here.
For Part III of the Tour, go here.

The Harry Potter Studio Tour is housed in two studios, Studio J and K (which is apparently a total coincidence and has nothing to do with JK Rowling's initials). From the Great Hall in Studio J, you move into a large space where props, costumes and sets are displayed. There is so much to see that was quite overwhelming at times - at times I didn't quite know where to look.
The gates to Hogwarts
High Inquisitor Dolores Umbridge's Proclamations from The Order of the Phoenix
Beauxbatons Academy uniform from The Goblet of Fire

They built the boys' dormitory for the first film and used the same set for all films. The boys were, of course, much taller but the shots were framed so that we didn't see their feet hanging off the end of the beds.

Gryffindor Common Room
Snape's Potions Classroom
The Stairwell to Dumbledore's Office
Dumbledore's Office
The Sword of Gryffindor
The Tri-Wizard Cup and the egg that contained the clue for the final task
The Burrow! The sweater was knitting itself, the knife was cutting carrots, the scrub brush was cleaning the frying pan. Like magic!
The Ministry of Magic sets finished up Studio J.
