Please check there's tickets on the dates you want to go. I'd hate to see you can't find any closer to the time - it's a busy tourist attraction and you can't buy tickets on the door.

Luton is 10 miles up the M1 and people are saying Gatwick and Birmingham are the best. Even Heathrow is twice as far as Luton.

Well it was over a year ago but, yes. It's actually nearer 20 miles from Luton Airport to Leavesden, so not the cheapest taxi ride and it's a pain by any other means of public transport.

17.7 miles on the AA website but that sends you via the M25 for some reason. The cost of the taxi needs to be traided off against multiple train tickets and the bus from Watford Junc to the studios and the time. Birmingham International to Watford Junc 1hr 53 mins if you don't use Virgin trains. Gatwick to Watford Junc 1 hr 23 minutes. Luton to the studios by taxi less than 30 minutes.

Hi,

Just wondering which airport did you choose in the end ? Im planning on bringing our son later this year, also flying from Dublin for his Birthday ! Also trying to get tickets for Harry Potter west end play, which not as straighforward.

Many thanks

Harteireland,

This thread dates back to 2016 and the OP hasn't posted anything on the TA forums since last May so you might do better to start a fresh thread of your own or even try sending the OP a PM on the off chance that she still logs on.
