What to expect


Warner Bros. Studio Tour London provides an amazing new opportunity to explore the magic of the Harry Potter™ films – the most successful film series of all time. This unique walking tour takes you behind-the-scenes and showcases a huge array of beautiful sets, costumes and props. It also reveals some closely guarded secrets, including facts about the special effects and animatronics that made these films so hugely popular all over the world.


Platform 9 ¾ and Hogwarts Express


Step onto Platform 9 ¾ and venture inside the original Hogwarts Express steam engine! This permanent exhibit gives visitors the chance to climb aboard the train's carriage and pose with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the platform wall. Scenes featuring the working train were shot at the Studios, including the iconic last scene in which a grown up Harry, Ron and Hermione wave their own children off to Hogwarts as they leave for school.


Gringotts Wizarding Bank


Enter the all new Gringotts Wizarding Bank on Diagon Alley and discover the magical treasures within. Step into Bellatrix Lestrange's vault to find the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff's Cup, one of Voldemort's many Horcruxes, before taking a unique photo surrounded by thousands of pieces of magical treasure…unless the goblins find you first!


Here are just some of the things you can expect to see and do:




  • Enjoy watching the first Harry Potter movie on the journey to and from the studios.


  • Step inside and discover the actual Great Hall.


  • Explore Dumbledore's office and discover never-before-seen treasures.


  • Step onto the famous cobbles of Diagon Alley, featuring the shop fronts of Ollivanders wand shop, Flourish and Blotts, the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium.


  • See iconic props from the films, including Harry's Nimbus 2000 and Hagrid's motorcycle.


  • Learn how creatures were brought to life with green screen effects, animatronics and life-sized models.


  • Rediscover other memorable sets from the film series, including the Gryffindor common room, the boys' dormitory, Hagrid's hut, Potion's classroom and Professor Umbridge's office at the Ministry of Magic.


  • Delve into the Dark Arts: see the Malfoy Manor fireplace and table around which Bellatrix Lestrange, the Malfoy family, the Death Eaters and Voldemort sat plus a 20-foot model of Voldemort's snake Nagini!




Special Events for 2022



Magical Mischief



Saturday 22nd January – Sunday 1st May 2022



You will learn how the favourite mischievous moments from the films were brought to the screen. The Great Hall will be dressed for a Weasley prank on the peaceful O.W.L.s exam, complete with the swinging pendulum under the watchful eye of Dolores Umbridge, with her pink two-piece costume also taking centre stage. Also, look above to see the playful Weasley twins' costumes on their broomsticks suspended from the Great Hall ceiling.



See how clever camera trickery created the disappearing effect of the invisibility cloak and make your own origami howler, just like the one Mrs Weasley delivered. Learn how the infamous fireplace letter scene inside 4 Privet was created. Eagle-eyed visitors will spot a number of pesky Cornish Pixies on the loose around the Studio Tour and collect stamps as part of your Marauder's Map activity passport.



Dark Arts



Friday 23rd September – Sunday 6th November




The Dark Arts feature will return for Hallowe'en in 2022 with the Great Hall ceiling decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins as well as a spooky feast of lollipops and red apples dressed along the tables. Follow the Dark Mark trail, try their wand combat moves against Death Eaters in a live duel as they storm the Studio Tour, all before walking down a darker Platform 9 ¾ and a spookier Diagon Alley.



Hogwarts in the Snow



Saturday 12th November – Sunday 15th January 2023



Hogwarts in the Snow is back in 2022. The festive makeover will see the Great Hall transformed with the icy silvers of the iconic Yule Ball scenes. The Gryffindor common room will be dressed for the season and a blanket of filmmaking snow will cover the Forbidden Forest, Diagon Alley and the magnificent Hogwarts castle model.



New for 2021, the trees and woodland in the Forbidden Forest will be given a festive makeover, draped in layers of filmmaking snow, as well as the cobbled stones and magical shop fronts of Diagon Alley, Hagrid's Hut and the Hogwarts castle model.



Once again, the enchanting Great Hall will be dressed for the occasion with wreaths, garlands and trees topped with witches on miniature broomsticks. The long dining tables will be dressed as they were for the seasonal feast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, complete with SFX flaming Christmas puddings and prop versions of the mouth-watering roast turkeys and hams studded with cherries.
