Go behind-the-scenes at Hogwarts with a Warner Bros. studio tour
The Warner Bros. Studio Tour is an interactive attraction in Leavesden, England. It is a permanent public exhibit, offering a genuine behind the curtain look at the popular Harry Potter series. Opened for public viewing since 2012, the studio welcomes up to six thousand visitors a day during peak times. The Warner Bros. Studio tour is probably the only exhibition of its size in the world, earning the title of the Top 10 Most Innovative Entertainment Design Projects of 2012. Step inside this hi-tech studio to lose yourself in the world of Harry Potter.
Every Harry Potter fan dreams of stepping into his world, which is exactly what the tour offers. Visit the studio to see how the Harry Potter books were made into the fantastic movies we know and love. One of the best things about the studio is that it contains original props from the films. Every costume and item on display are the ones used by the actors in the eight movies. Take the opportunity to understand how the studio brought the series’ magical creatures to life through special and visual effects. Meet Buckbeak, pick up a wand, try out your spells, and enter the potions laboratory. You can also ride a broomstick over the wizarding world with green screen technology.
Visit iconic sets from the Harry Potter series
With your Warner Bros. studio tour ticket, you get to explore some of the most famous sets of the Harry Potter movies. The Great Hall of Hogwarts, which was built in 2000, is a massive set which will blow you away. As well as the teachers’ table and two large dining tables, the hall includes student costumes from every Hogwarts house. The Forbidden Forest set was a combination of studio and location shooting. Later, it moved to the studio to accommodate Aragog’s lair. Nineteen trees, each well over twelve feet tall, fill this eerie set.
But wait, there’s lots more to see! You can also visit Dumbledore’s Office, Hagrid’s Hut, the Gryffindor Common Room, Diagon Alley and Platform 9 and 3/4 on your tour.
