Discover The Warner Bros. Studio Tour

After being shot in Leavesden for more than a decade, the producers at Warner Bros. decided to capture the final moments of the film and let their doors open for visitors who wanted a look into their favourite film making. After wrapping up on the final movie (Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows — pt. 2), the crew put together a showcase of their favourite moments, props, costumes and iconic sets that made Harry Potter what it is today. For each of the eight films, the producers have left behind a memento as a set that acts as its reminder. You can catch a glimpse of a fully functional and fire-breathing Hungarian Horntail dragon, that was put together by the Special Effects Team in Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire, resting peacefully in the studio as well! Open to public since 2012, the studio tour today acts as a fond revisit to what still remains a favourite childhood memory of many.

Sets

Revisit the iconic sets from all the Harry Potter movies in person. Here are the ones you simply shouldn’t miss:

  • Great Hall: Making one of the most iconic scenes in the film, the Great Hall remains untouched with two large tables and beautiful, handmade props used in the film.
  • Forbidden Forest: If your curiosity peaks at the mention of forbidden things, this forest should be the first on your list! Walk through impressive backdrops and trees to rediscover fear again.
  • Platform 9 3/4: A set many of us have imagined getting onto while dreaming of our Hogwarts letter, the beloved train stands as it is for you to pose and get pictures with.
  • Diagon Alley: Walk through the eerie lanes of Diagon Alley that have been reimagined as various scenes in all the Harry Potter movies.
Props

Magical or not, the props from the films are still enough to bring back fond memories and a wave of nostalgia. Here are some of the most well-known props in the studio:

  • Potions Classroom: Marvel at about 950 jars of potions stacked up against the wall, with almost realistic dried herbs, shrunken heads and animal bones!
  • Memory Cabinet: Sieve through 900 memory vials and labels that once belonged in Professor Dumbledore’s office.
  • Professor Umbridge’s Office: Carefully preserved by the Props department, Professor Umbridge’s office remains untouched with its infamous cat portraits and pink decor.
  • Puking Pastilles: The Puking Pastilles dispenser of Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes was recreated with great efforts by Head Propmaker Pierre Bohanna. Today it stands as a reminder of Fred & George’s wicked sense of humour!
Costumes

Harry Potter fans probably have an idea how Costumes were as important as the props in the film. Here are some that made it to the studio display:

  • Quidditch: The jersey for Quidditch went through a number of designs before being approved, visit the costume department to know in-depth about its progress.
  • 19 Years Later: Witness the iconic final scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 that was recreated at the studio using mannequins.
  • Yule Ball: The magical Yule Ball that took place during the Triwizard Tournament saw a spectacular display of fashion, relive the frolic at Costumes Department and know more behind the producer’s struggle.
  • Beauxbatons: Witness how the Beauxbatons’ uniform sported by the students of the school went through a couple of tweaks before it got where it is in the movie.
SFX & VFX

Discover the secrets behind some of your favourite magic tricks pulled off by the Special Effects team during the movie:

  • Chamber of Secrets Door: Check out the fully operational Chamber of Secrets door masterfully created by Special Effects team. Made using an electric motor, the articulated snakes behind the door were made to move along their slotted tracks.
  • Invisibility Cloak: Perhaps on everyone’s wish-list, the invisibility cloak that was specially created using a velvet fabric remains on display for avid fans at the Costume Department.
  • Whomping Willow: The mechanically operated tree that was meant to be a destruction machine appears in several films and it stands as a testament of an exceptional digital post-production.
  • Green Screen: A number of magical scenes that were shot for Harry Potter used a green screen. The unique green screen experience at the studio allows guests to take broomstick tour of London just like the cast did.
Creature effects

A very important part of the magical world were its magical beings and creatures that require a host of intricacies and detailing before being executed to perfection. Here are some that have stunned you in the movies before:

  • Buckbeak: Everyone’s favourite Buckbeak the Hippogriff stands tall in this section of the studio for fans to marvel at its complicated built.
  • Goblin Heads: The movie required 2,140 makeup artists that could turn 60 actors into goblins. This craftsmanship today finds its home in the studio.
  • Aragog: Bringing your Arachnophobia to life, the giant spider with a leg span of 18 feet still exists at the Warner Bros. studio!
Art department

The art department that worked behind the scenes of Harry Potter created magic on screen simply based out of imagination. Here are some spectacular sights you’re most likely to witness during your tour:

  • Hogwarts Castle Model: Perhaps one of the most sought-after attraction in the studio, the model is meticulously designed keeping in mind every chamber, tunnel and dungeon of the castle.
  • Graphic Design: Whether it was the wall of ‘kittens’ in Umbridge’s office or the flurry of Hogwarts letters that made their way into the Dursley house, the Graphic Design team lets you have a closer look into the workings of magic in Harry Potter.
  • White Card Models: Before the gigantic sets could materialise, the Art Department team would come up with smaller, white card models of them to help the director have a clear idea. The tour lets you into the most initial phases of your favourite moments.
