A Magical Trip to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London

Whether you happen to be visiting London with Harry Potter fans or you’re making the trip exclusively for the attraction, discover the wonders of the Wizarding World at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

Walk in the footsteps of Harry, Ron, and Hermione on The Making of Harry Potter Tour – there’s so much to see and experience, a day trip here is sure to capture the imaginations of even the most disbelieving muggles.

The Making of Harry Potter Tour Highlights

The Forbidden Forest

Step into the Forbidden Forest, it’s not off-limits here, and explore its abundance of mystical creatures. Look out for hippogriffs and the acromantula. If you get into trouble, don’t worry – the Forbidden Forest is also home to fan-favourite half-giant Hagrid, Hogwarts Care of Magical Creatures professor.
Walk through the Forbidden Forest, among intertwined roots and enormous trees, and try your hand at controlling the weather just like the filmmakers do!

The Hogwarts Express

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour is home to the original Hogwarts Express steam engine, and a detailed replica of Platform 9¾. The permanent part of the tour allows fans to see how some of the most iconic scenes were created, also allowing guests to climb aboard the train and take pictures with a luggage trolley  that’s passing through the platform’s concealed magical wall.

Gringotts Wizarding Bank

The latest addition to the Making of Harry Potter tour, Gringotts Wizarding Bank is the setting of Harry’s most pivotal scenes. From the very first time he enters the wizarding world to the gang’s escape on a dragon later in the series, fans of the magical franchise are in for a real treat.

Walk through the grand, pillar-lined banking hall, visit the mysterious Lestrange vault, and pass through a gallery of goblins. 

The Great Hall

Perhaps the most iconic Hogwarts setting, the Great Hall hosted many important scenes throughout the film series. Walk around the hall and discover student costumes from each Hogwarts house plus two long tables set out for dinner.

Some more props to look out for in the Great Hall include Professor Dumbledore’s lectern and the House Point Counter. 

Diagon Alley

The vibrant Diagon Alley set evolved throughout the film series and is an exciting part of the Making of Harry Potter Tour today. Home to Gringotts Wizarding Bank, Flourish and Blotts, and Ollivanders ancient wand shop. 
Stroll through Diagon Alley and look out for every detail – there’s so much to see, make sure you take your time here and really make the most of your visit!
