After the Great Hall, the tour is self-guided. We took our time and gazed carefully at each set and marveled at the elaborate props.

In the special effects area guests can hop aboard a broomstick and take a ride in front of a green screen. This was loads of fun and we only had to queue for a few minutes. Later in the day, the queue for this can be up to an hour long! Of course, the photos are available for purchase- but they were so unique I didn't mind paying for them.
The tour continues outside on what is known as the "backlot". Here, we got an up close look at the knight bus, #4 Privet Drive, the Weasley's car, Potter's cottage, and the Hogwarts bridge.

We also stopped here to enjoy a bite to eat and a cool frothy cup of Butter Beer.

|Along Diagon Alley|
A trip down Diagon Alley led to the finale of the tour: the model of Hogwarts. It was huge and as we walked around it the lighting slowly changed offering us a feel for what it would look like at different times of day and night.
