How to Purchase Tickets
Tickets can be purchased via our website www.harrypotteronlocation.co.uk or by telephone (0800 640 4450).
All persons wishing to visit the Exhibition must purchase Tickets in advance and pre-book the time and date of their entrance. All telephone calls made to 0800 640 4450 from a BT landline will be charged at local rates. Calls from mobile operators and other networks may vary.
Payment must be made in full at the time of buying a Ticket either by credit card or debit card. We do not accept cheques or cash.
Upon purchase of a Ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with a Ticket reference number. This email constitutes your proof of purchase and will be checked to allow you to enter the Exhibition. Digital or hard copy is acceptable.
Please check that you have received this email following purchase. We take no responsibility should you not receive this email due to reasons outside of our control e.g. junk or spam filtering.
If you purchase a Ticket to the Exhibition you will also be issued with a PDF attachment containing the barcode necessary for your entrance to the Exhibition.
It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of the details on your email confirmation or Ticket (as appropriate) as mistakes cannot always be rectified. When you receive your email confirmation, please keep this in a safe place as we cannot be held responsible for any that are lost or stolen.
Only Tickets purchased directly from us or one of our authorised distributors are valid for admission. Tickets purchased from unauthorised third parties, including online auction sites, are not valid for entry.
Tickets are sent by email to the email address provided to us during the booking procedure.
Email confirmation will be sent to you shortly after conclusion of the order process.
PDF attachments should include the same Ticket reference number included in your Ticket confirmation email.
Entering the Exhibition
You will need to scan the barcode of your PDF attachment at the entrance of the Exhibition.
We may also request sight of the credit card used to pay for the Tickets (or, if the card holder is not attending, a signed letter of authorisation from the card holder) at the Exhibition entrance for purchase verification purposes.
Allocated Entry Time
You will be given the opportunity to select a date and time for arrival at the Exhibition (an “Allocated Time”) (subject to availability) during the online or telephone booking procedure and this will be shown on your confirmation email or Ticket (as appropriate). It is your responsibility to arrive in time for your Allocated Time.
You are asked to arrive at the Exhibition no later than 10 minutes before your Allocated Time although you will not be allowed access into the Exhibition before your Allocated Time.
Visitors who miss their Allocated Time are not guaranteed entry to the Exhibition. Staff will advise visitors who have missed their Allocated Time of the next available time slot but at busy times it may not be possible to find a time on the same day in which case it will be necessary to re-book an Allocated Time.
Once an Allocated Time has been issued, it will be necessary to call 0800 640 4450 for you to change the day and/or time of entry into the Exhibition. A charge of £10.00 will be applied every time a booking is changed.
We reserve the right to amend an Allocated Time once it has been issued to you but we will endeavour to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary. Should we have to significantly amend your Allocated Time (i.e. by four (4) hours or more), you may choose to accept the new Allocated Time, arrange another mutually agreeable Allocated Time with us via our telephone booking line or cancel the Ticket. If you choose to cancel in these circumstances, we will refund you all the monies you have paid to us for the Ticket(s) but no further compensation will be paid.
Where Ticket prices vary according to age, the following provisions apply:
- A person of 16 years or older is classed as an Adult;
- A person aged between 5 and 15 years (inclusive) is classed as a Child; and
- Children aged 4 and under will not be charged an admission fee. However, each child aged 4 and under must present a valid Ticket at the specified Allocated Time in order to enter the Exhibition.
Group tickets for parties of ten or more may be available at discounted rates. Please contact our telephone booking line (0800 640 4450) for more information.
The price of Tickets may vary from time to time. Our prices are as stated on our website but are liable to change at any time. When buying a Ticket either via the website or by telephone, the total price will be confirmed. We reserve the right to correct any pricing errors even after we have sent you the email confirmation or Tickets (as appropriate) although we will endeavour to do so as soon as we become aware of the error.
Ticket prices are in UK Sterling and include VAT.
Ticktes – General Terms
One Ticket purchased entitles one person entry to the Exhibition on a single occasion. Once you have exited the Exhibition, you will need to purchase a new Ticket to re-enter the Exhibition.
All persons entering the Exhibition must hold a valid Ticket that must be retained at all times and must be available for inspection if required by any member of staff. Failure to produce a valid Ticket on request may result in your removal from the Exhibition.
Tickets remain our property at all times. We reserve the right to require the immediate return of the Tickets at any time and to refuse entry to, or eject from the Exhibition, any person who fails to comply with these Terms.
Once acquired, Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable and void if altered. Tickets that we reasonably suspect have been transferred or altered will not be honoured. Tickets are not for resale. Any such resale shall have the effect of rendering that Ticket void.
Tickets will include entry to most, but not necessarily all, areas of the Exhibition, as we may have to close areas to allow for maintenance and updating.
Should you wish to cancel a Ticket, you must notify us immediately by telephone on 0800 640 4450 upon which the email confirmation or Tickets shall become void. We are under no obligation to issue refunds where a Ticket has been cancelled by you but, notwithstanding this, any such refund shall be entirely at our discretion.
In rare circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to cancel a Ticket but we will endeavour to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary. Should we have to cancel your Ticket we will refund you all the monies you have paid to us.
If you have purchased a Ticket from our website and are resident in the European Union, you are entitled to cancel your purchase within seven (7) business days from the date of purchase and receive a refund. This right to cancel does not apply to pre-booked Tickets. Should you wish to cancel your purchase please contact us by telephone on 0800 640 4550.
Please note that, in some cases, we accept orders on behalf of third party sellers. The resulting legal contract is between you and that third party seller, and is subject to the terms and conditions of that third party seller, which they will advise you of themselves. You should carefully review their terms and conditions applying to the transaction.
We may also provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking that products you purchase from third party sellers through our site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect our statutory rights against the third party seller.
Children (under 16 years of age) must be accompanied by a person aged 16 years or over whilst in or in the vicinity of the Exhibition. Such children shall remain under the control and supervision of a person aged 16 or over at all times.
