What are Harry Potter™ Studios Tours?

Harry Potter may have ended, but the magic survives at the Harry Potter™ Studios in London. The centre for all eight films, the Studios will feel familiar as you walk the iconic Hogwarts Great Hall and make your way through Diagon Alley. The production crew of the Harry Potter movies carefully designed the Warner Bros. Studios and stocked it with original costumes and unforgettable Harry Potter props. They were the ones to pitch the idea for the Studios to Warner Bros., who agreed to open it on 31 March 2012 in Leavesden.

Many additions have since been made to the Warner Bros. Studios, including a 20,000 square feet (1,858 square metres) expansion in 2015. The original Hogwarts Express was added, giving visitors more nostalgia. You can board the memorable train at Platform 9 ¾ and discover the secrets of the Harry Potter series. Visit the iconic Potions Classroom containing 500 potion jars and archways inscribed with the English and Latin names of potions selected from ancient alchemy recipes. There's just so much to see! Get ready to unravel the real world of Harry Potter.

Brief History of Harry Potter™ Studios in London

The Harry Potter™ Studios in London wouldn't have existed without the production crew. After the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow – Part 2 in 2010, the production crew felt they wanted Harry Potter fans to experience the filmmaking of the movies firsthand. They had enough props, artwork, and original material to showcase and they returned to set up the sets, costumes, props and everything else. Warner Bros. then agreed to open the Studio Tour on 31st March 2012.

Three years later, Platform 9¾ inside the Studios was expanded by 20,000 square feet (1,858 square metres). Warner Bros. brought back the original Hogwarts Express to give visitors an unforgettable ride. Since then, Warner Bros. Studios have added interactive events to give visitors an even better experience. The sets, special effects, Arts Department and other experiences take the visitors on a nostalgic journey on their studio tour, giving them a feel of the evolution through the eight Harry Potter movies.
