It is not difficult to divine just why it is…
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you won’t want to miss our exclusive event at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter on Friday 19th May 2017. Whether you’re a Gryffindor or a Slytherin (and only the Sorting Hat can decide), you can explore the sets and props of the one of the most famous film series in history after-hours.
Here are the top 10 reasons why you shouldn’t miss out:
Meet Martin Bayfield, Body-Double for the Character of Hagrid
Rubeus Hagrid, played by Robbie Coltrane in the Harry Potter films, warmed our hearts from the moment he burst through the door on Harry Potter’s birthday in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. That’s why we’re excited to meet Robbie Coltrane’s body-double Martin Bayfield (all 6 ft 10 of him!) at this year’s exclusive Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter event to uncover all the stories of life on set of the Harry Potter films.
Enter the Forbidden Forest
Although off-limits to Hogwarts students, guests at our exclusive Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter are allowed to go against Professor Dumbledore’s rules to venture through the Forest and explore at your own leisure.
Meet the Magical Creatures
As if meeting Hagrid’s body-double wasn’t enough, you’ll see many of the magical creatures that will transport you all into the world of Harry Potter. From the towering figure of Buckbeak to Aragog the Acromantula (there is a back route in the Forbidden Forest if you wish to avoid the spiders!); you’ll get to be part of a truly magic film set.
Get Up Close and Personal to the Dreaded Death Eaters
These masked enemies roamed the Harry Potter films (and our nightmares) and now they’re back at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Be brave and get up close to the fearsome Death Eaters and see the intricate costume designs that set them aside from all other enemies. We’re scared now…
Gain Access to Dumbledore’s Office
You can explore Professor Dumbledore’s office at your own leisure. Get to see all the incredible props that brought this set to life on-screen including the mystical Pensieve.
Learn Expert Wand Moves
Learn expert wand combat choreography from Paul Harris, the Wand Combat Choreographer for the Harry Potter films at the exclusive event at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.
Visit the Ministry of Magic
Although set underneath the Ministry of Defence in London in the films, the Ministry of Magic set is in fact at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter for you to see!
Fly a Broomstick
You can also learn to fly none other than a Nimbus 2000 and soar above the Hogwarts Express like a pro thanks to the green screen technology. As you take to the skies in your Hogwarts robe, be sure to keep your balance – photographs will be available for you to buy after your experience!
Try Delicious Butterbeer™
You’ll get to try a tankard of deliciously frothy Butterbeer brimming with flavours of shortbread and butterscotch.
Souvenir Guide Signed by John Richardson
You get to take home a souvenir guide book packed with information about the filming of the Harry Potter films and signed by Oscar-winning special effects supervisor John Richardson.
These are just 10 reasons why you shouldn’t miss our exclusive event at Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter but the list is endless. Whether you want to learn wand combat or meet Martin Bayfield, this will be an unforgettable experience and to top it off, you can head over to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour shop to purchase many exciting things including Peppermint Toads, Fudge Flies and Jelly Slugs!
