  • News

Despite only opening last spring, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter has clearly proved a hit with groups.

A behind-the-scenes walking tour that immerses visitors into the world of filmmaking, the Studio Tour features authentic sets, costumes and props that showcase the British artistry, technology and talent that went into producing the world’s most successful film series.

Groups can rediscover memorable sets from the Harry Potter film series, including the Gryffindor common room, the boys’ dormitory, Hagrid’s hut, the Potions classroom and Professor Umbridge’s office at the Ministry of Magic.

Walk through the actual Great Hall used in all eight films, explore Dumbledore’s office and discover never-before-seen treasures. There’s also the opportunity to step onto the famous cobbles of Diagon Alley, featuring the shop fronts of Ollivanders wand shop, Flourish and Blotts, the Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium.

As well as viewing iconic props from the films, including Harry’s NUmbus 200 and Hagrid’s motorcycle, group visitors can learn how creaturs were brought to life with green screen effects, animatronics and life-sized models.

Groups of ten or more receive discounted entry, and tickets must be booked in advanced.

“Having been open for a matter of months it’s a fantastic accolade for Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter to win Best UK Attraction as voted by Group Leisure readers. We are constantly looking for ways to engage our visitors into the behind-the-scenes world of British filmmaking and have received wonderful feedback.”
