Harry Potter Studio Tour!

Harry Potter Studio Tour!

Happy Saturday my lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week and have something nice planned for your weekend. As for me, my week has been filled with a horrendous cold that I came down with at the beginning of the week!

With that being said, I did have a very very good day on Thursday. Thursday I went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour! And it was absolutely amazing. I was very lucky that the trip was a birthday present from my boyfriend Matt, and we’d had it booked for well over a month so it’s safe to say I was pretty excited!

I’ve been to the studio tour once before, but that was a long long time ago, and a lot has been added since then; so, for today’s post I figured I’d share the hundreds of photos I took whilst I was there.

*PRE-WARNING* – OVER 100 SPOILERS AHEAD!!

Let’s get into it!

I think my favourite part of the tour was seeing all of the special effects and animatronics, it’s just amazing how creatures and scenery was brought to life! I took one or two videos of some of the effects below for you to check out, Buckbeak looked so so real it was crazy!

Well, that was my trip to Hogwarts! Believe it or not there’s still loads more you haven’t seen, and I could easily go back over and over again. It’s a great day out for the family and for anyone who’s a potterhead like me.

Have you been to the Harry Potter Studio Tour? If so, what was your favourite part? Let me know in the comments!

And with all that said, that’s all for today’s post! Have a great weekend lovelies!

Love,

The Sun: Living With Our Star – London Science Museum Trip!

The Sun: Living With Our Star – London Science Museum Trip!

Hello my lovelies! So about two weeks ago now I was invited for breakfast at the London Science Museum to view their new exhibition – The Sun: Living With Our Star, and how it has changed/impacted us over the years and will in the future. This was actually the second time I got to go to this exhibition; because I went at the very beginning of February with Matt, and we loved it, so when I got the chance to go back and take my family, I jumped at the opportunity. Photo 17-02-2019, 2 41 31 pm

I’ll start with a little info about the exhibition itself. The show is up until the 6th May 2019, and tickets are from £15 and kids under 16 years old go for free! (Bargain if you ask me). The exhibition has a few interactive displays which my family and I found great fun, and I learnt loads of new things about the sun that I didn’t know before. So, here’s what I have to say about it.

Firstly, I’d definitely recommend you go and see it! It’s a great day out for not only yourself, but also your family! Every piece in the exhibition is beautiful, unique and just darn right fascinating!

One thing I learnt is what to take (and what not to take) in the event of a solar storm. I also learnt how to read two types of sun dials..who needs watches anyway?!

Photo 02-02-2019, 10 15 11 amThere’s several rooms in the exhibition and one of those is an indoor beach which was very pretty and relaxing, also – no sunburn so no sun-cream needed! After having a little sit down on the beach loungers I got to virtually try on some sunglasses from different places and times around the world. If you go and try on the glasses, take a photo and add it to your instagram story and tag me (@theweightofmyworlds) and the science museum (@sciencemuseum), I’d love to see your snaps!

I got to see what time the sun rises and sets in different countries on different days, this display was beautiful! In contrast to that, I saw this bizarre bed without a mattress, it looks like some sort of medieval torture device but was actually used to treat sun stroke.

I’ll stop going on about how cool (or should I be saying hot? Hahaha) the exhibition was now and let some of the photos I took speak for themselves, but you aren’t seeing everything.. you’ve got to go and check it out for yourselves!

They have a great gift shop by the way, and the London Science Museum has even curated a new book called ‘The Sun: One Thousand Years Of Scientific Imagery’ with a huge number of incredible images not only of the sun but everything related to the sun!

After the exhibition, we went and had a wander round the rest of the museum and then had coffee and cake in one of their lovely cafes! I hope you enjoy the museum; if you go (which you should..) be sure to let me know and tag me in any of your photos you post! Once we’d had a good chill out and snack, we went and visited a few of the other museums and made a weekend of it!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post my lovelies, it was an absolute pleasure to visit the London Science Museum and write this post. I know you’ll all love it if you go!

Have a great weekend everyone! Where do you like going for days out? Let me know in the comments!!

Love,
