Are you one of the thousands, if not millions, of people across the globe who have dreamt receiving an owl post which invites you to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? If you are then you are probably pretty disappointed that an owl didn’t arrive with a letter for you, but we have good news – the wizarding world of Harry Potter awaits you in London and you don’t even need an invitation!
Warner Bros. Studio outside of London has created an amazing studio tour that gives muggles, the wizarding world’s term for non-magical folk, the chance to experience the magical world of witches and wizards.
Wondering what you will see and do in the Magical World of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour? Here is a look at some of the things you will experience when you go on this amazing, magical tour.
Walk Through the Original Sets from the Movies
When you are on the Warner Bros. Studio tour for Harry Potter, you will feel like you are actually in the movie because, in a way, you are. The original sets from the movie are set up for tours. You will do everything from a walk through the Forbidden Forest and browse through the halls of Hogwarts to stroll down the streets of Diagon Alley.
See the Original Props from the Movies
The sets in the Harry Potter movies were amazing, but what made the movie so magical were the props that were used. While you are on a magical tour, you will be able to see the original props used by the actors.
Some of the props that you will get a chance to look at include:
- Bottles from the potions classroom
- Professor Umbridge’s Office
- Sorting Hat
- School books
- Background props
- Vials from the memory cabinet
See What the Actors Wore to Make the Transformation into their Magical Roles
Every day the actors wore elaborate costumes that helped them transform into their magical roles. Those costumes are on display for visitors to see during the studio lot tour. Visitors will be able to see the original costumes worn by Harry Potter, Voldermort, Ron, Hermione, Hagrid and all the other cast members.
Special Seasonal Activities and Attractions
Some of the attractions and displays, such as the props, costumes and sets, are open all year round. However, some activities and attractions are seasonal. These limited edition activities and attractions are magical and simply breathtaking.
Some of the limited edition activities and attractions you can take part in include:
- Learn the Dark Arts during the Autumn Season.
- Make Magical Winter Memories with Hogwarts in the Snow – the entire castle grounds are transformed to look like a magical winter wonderland.
- Dine with Other Harry Potter Fans in the Great Hall.
- Hogwarts After Dark – the lights are dimmed; you are invited to dinner with a tour of the sets as Death Eaters wander around. It is a creepy, yet thrilling experience.
