Warner Bros – The Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour

We were invited to the Studios last year and it was an amazing insight to see how these films are made and the work effort and preparation necessary to bring them to the screen. The Harry Potter film series made Leavesden its home for more than ten years. As the books were still being released while the films were being made, the production crew saved many of the iconic sets, props and costumes that were created especially for the films – just in case they were ever needed later on in the series. You too will be able to gaze in wonder at the stunning exhibits and we shall also be able to enter the new set of Gringotts Wizarding Bank as the studio unveils its biggest expansion to date.

Warner Bros - The Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour

About this excursion

£99 per person

Once filming wrapped on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 in 2010, Harry Potter - logothe production crew were left with a treasure trove of thousands of intricate and beautifully-made artefacts, many of which wouldn’t have been saved on a typical production.

The team behind Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter wanted to preserve and showcase these iconic props, costumes and sets so that Harry Potter fans could experience the magic of filmmaking first-hand. Many of the original cast and crew returned to reassemble the sets and record their memories from filming, and on 31st March 2012, the Studio Tour opened its doors.

Set adjacent to the working film studios where all eight Harry Potter films were made, the Studio Tour offers visitors the unique opportunity to explore two soundstages and a backlot filled with original sets, animatronic creatures and breathtaking special effects.

About the new attraction – Gringotts Wizarding Bank

From Harry Potter first discovering Diagon Alley to the famous trio escaping on a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon in their quest for a Horcrux, Gringotts Wizarding Bank played an important role in the Harry Potter film series. Gringotts Wizarding Bank

Lined by towering marble pillars, the grand banking hall will be decorated with three crystal chandeliers and finished with real brass leaf. Inkwells, quills, ledgers and piles of Galleons, Sickles and Knuts will complete the goblin tellers’ desks as seen on screen.

Gringotts Wizarding Bank is famously run by goblins. Walking through the imposing marble columns, visitors will discover the costumes and prosthetics belonging to Bogrod, Griphook and many other goblin bankers.

Once through the banking hall of Gringotts, visitors will enter the depths of the Lestrange Vault used to store the treasures of Bellatrix Lestrange including the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup, one of Voldemort’s many Horcruxes.

The cost of this event includes luxury coach transport, your entrance ticket to the studio and, of course, surprise treats.
