The iconic Harry Potter films have captivated the world for almost 10 years and, from March 31, the doors at the studio where it first began will be open for the first time to reveal how the eight films were made.

From detailed sets to the amazing costumes, props and animatronics, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will take visitors behind the scenes to see the actual Great Hall at Hogwarts, explore Dumbledore’s office and step onto the cobbles of Diagon Alley as well as see props such as Harry’s Nimbus 2000 broomstick.

The self-guided walking tour will take about three hours.

The studios are located north of Watford, close to the M1 and M25 motorways.

Tickets must be purchased in advance; for more information on availability and ticket prices, go to www.wbstudiotour.co.uk.
