Day 8 *Harry Potter!

This was one of the days I was looking forward to most. We skipped breakfast and headed out at 8:30. Walked to Euston train station, bought day return tickets and jumped on our train to Watford Junction. About 25 minutes later we were catching a bus to Warner Brothers Harry Potter Tour. 30 minutes later we were having Starbucks, grabbed our reserved audio guides and started our journey through. Both Alicia and I enjoyed today immensely. So many beautiful sets, costumes, and props. Everything here is an actual part of the movie series. Not a duplicate. We spent about 4 hours here. Then we bussed to the train, trained back to the hotel and rested for a few hours. *******I rested a bit then at 6:30 I headed to the British Library without Alicia who was "knackered." The Library closes at 8 and online did not say that the main area closes at 6! So that was a bust. And I had been so excited! I then ran down the road to Nandos and grabbed take away for dinner. We gave it a 6 out of 10. But fun to try new places. I took some pictures of the train station we had arrived in London through.
St Pancras Station is gorgeous. ******We are watching some NCIS and then it is off to bed. *********Lesson learned: if you go to the hp studios in London each store along the way is different. As you are not allowed to go backwards if you see something you like buy it. You won't see it again later. I wish I had bought a tee I saw early on but figured I'd grab it later on. Oops.
