This 110-acre studio on the Valley-side of the Hollywood Hills has served as the home of Warner Bros. since 1928. Since then, the studio has hosted production on a seemingly endless list of iconic movies and TV shows, including Casablanca, Looney Tunes, Friends and Ellen. Today, you can tour the backlot and soundstages on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood.
Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood:
Warner Bros.’ three-hour guided tram and walking tour zips through the studio’s sizeable footprint—110 acres on the Valley-side of the Hollywood Hills—with about a dozen other passengers onboard. It’s an encyclopedic tour of all types of filming locations, with a journey through the backlot’s city stand-ins and Gilmore Girls-starring residential square, as well as a stops inside a soundstage and at a few museum-caliber displays of props. Though you’ll spend some time simply navigating the sprawling grid of soundstages, you’ll also stop and venture on foot with memorable photo ops: a seat on the couch at Friends’ Central Perk or The Big Bang Theory’s Apartment 4A, an opportunity to mount a Harry Potter broomstick and the chance to come face to face with almost every Batmobile imaginable.
Since we last visited in the summer of 2019 (and ahead of the tour’s June 26, 2021 reopening), Warner Bros. has moved all of the DC Comics and Wizarding World props into the seemingly much more photogenic and interactive “Action and Magic Made Here.” In addition, they’ve doubled down on the Friends experience with an expanded, fully functional Central Perk that includes shopping and dining areas set in recreations of the cafe as well as Monica’s and Joey and Chandler’s apartments.
For fans of: Ellen, Conan, The Big Bang Theory, Friends, Harry Potter, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Crazy Rich Asians, Looney Tunes
You won’t find anywhere else: A dedicated studio museum, and by far the most to see on any studio tour.
