Harry Potter fans can now discover even more of Hogwarts at the Studio Tour

If you missed out on your Hogwarts letter when you turned 11, there's no need to be disheartened – just like Harry Potter, you can go and explore the iconic wizarding school for yourself.

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter has been giving muggles a chance to explore iconic sets from the Harry Potter films for years, but this summer it's adding some extra magic with its brand new Discovering Hogwarts event.

Just like Harry, Ron and Hermione, there's ample opportunity to immerse yourself in Hogwarts whether that's exploring the Great Hall with 400 floating candles (the first time they've decorated the hall since filming), taking part in a wizarding class, or getting a glimpse of the Sorting Hat that determines which of the four houses you'll be put into.

A new feature for the attraction will be Professor Flitwick’s Charms Class where visitors can learn filmmaking secrets behind the floating feather when Harry mastered the Wingardium Leviosa spell with Ron and Hermione – and yes, pronunciation is important!

Fans will also get to learn the secrets that went into filming Hagrid the half-giant, including a live demonstration of how Robbie Coltrane’s body double was fitted with stilts and a prosthetic head to achieve Hagrid’s towering height.

Other highlights include the 'Sorting Ceremony' chatterbox where you can create an origami 'Sorting Ceremony' to take home, and a new scene showcasing the first time Dobby met Harry at Privet Drive.

The whole tour takes a few hours to explore, and it's packed with iconic sets and props from the films.

For example you can peer into the Weasley family home, The Burrow, enjoy the view of the Gryffindor Common Room, brave a stroll through the Forbidden Forest, watch out for dragons in Gringotts, go window shopping in Diagon Alley and even board the Hogwarts Express itself.

Then of course there is the iconic Hogwarts castle model for that final dose of Harry Potter magic.

The attraction also has a cafe where you can stop for Butterbeer and snacks, as well as an impressive gift shop packed with merchandise inspired by the films and the four Hogwarts houses.

Discovering Hogwarts will run until September 4, 2023 and is included in the ticket price to the walk-through attraction.

Tickets start from £51.50 and must be pre-booked at wbstudiotour.co.uk – it's worth noting you won't be able to buy tickets at the attraction itself.
