My partner and I, land in London at 9am on the 5th June and am looking for the cheapest way to travel to see the warner Brothers harry potter world, natural history museum and then to Heathrow Airport on the 6th at 7am.

Best  cheap hotels/AirBB and recommendations on where to stay during this quick visit as ill be travelling between different areas?

Any places I could fit in between either of these two activities in the evening?

Edit HP is something we will be doing. NHM is just an option, open to other things to do instead

You'll be pushed for time. HP world isn't in central Lindon and needs at least 3 hours.

Natural history museum is easy to get to if you're central but again could take 4+ hours depending on how interested you are in the displays.

You will need to book tickets in advance for Harry Potter. You can't just rock up on the day..tickets are sold out months ahead and they let you in at the time on the ticket.

Natural history museum is free and you can just turn up but at busy times you may have to book ahead.

What time slot have u booked for Harry Potter & where are you staying over night as this will determine how much time you will have to navigate to a further place.

Harry Potter is in Watford, so not central, so you'll need to jump on a train or bus from London. Or your could stay nearby. We have stayed in a Premier inn hotel in Bricket Wood, which is near to the M25 motorway. There may be buses from London to the Studios themselves.

Look at staying at hemmel Hempstead premier inn. We did Harry potter one day and into London the next. I want to say it took about 30minutes on the train (but it was a good few years ago). I can't remember what ticket I got but it did a number of underground zones. Just check buses/public transport to HP as I had my car but should be plenty of public transport.

If you don't mind walking there is also a Harry Potter tour in London that takes you round some filming spots 🙂, also some (expensive) Harry potter shops at kings Cross near the trolly in the Wall.

Unfortunately you won't be able to do both, they are miles from each other and you will be at HP for maybe 3 hrs. You need Watford Junction Station and then there is HP bus that will take you there.
