For fans of most Premier league clubs, it will be the first time that they have visited the town since the attraction, where you can step on to authentic sets, discover the magic behind spellbinding special effects and explore the behind-the-scenes secrets of the Harry Potter film series at the studios where it all began, opened in 2012.

Whilst Watford is probably not the first place you might think of when listing the UK’s top tourism hotspots, fans of West Bromwich Albion were the first to make the most of their visit to the town by taking in the famous studios nearby last weekend, with Southampton and Swansea fans coming hot on their heals.

Good To See owner, Simon Harding, does advise booking early: “Weekends can get very busy at Warner Brother’s Studios, so, to get the entry times that you want, it is best to plan ahead.
