New in 2017
NEW! Enter the Forbidden Forest
Opening on 31 March 2017, visitors to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will be able to defy the orders of Professor Dumbledore and enter the Forbidden Forest in an exciting new permanent expansion. Home to Aragog the Acromantula and Buckbeak the Hippogriff, the forest will contain 19 trees each with a diameter of over 12 feet. Visitors will be able to walk beneath the entwined roots and discover how to control the weather within the forest, discovering the same techniques used during filming.
21 July – 4 September
See the magical costumes created during the ten years of filming, from Hogwarts school robes and Hermione’s beautiful Yule Ball gown to ghost costumes that could appear transparent via visual effects. Discover the incredible craftsmanship and artistry that went into some of the best never-before-seen costumes from the magical film series. See the whole process from initial designs to the finished costume, as well as learning how new clothes were made to look centuries old or battle-torn through the art of costume distressing.
27 October – 6 November
Delve deeper than ever before into the sinister world of Dark Arts! Try out wand combat techniques against a Death Eater or walk down a darker, spookier Diagon Alley. The lights in the wizarding shopping street will be dimmed, the music will become more foreboding and the set will be patrolled by He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's followers.
Here are just some of the things you can expect to see and do:
