Brief history of Warner Bros. Harry Potter™ Studios in London

The Harry Potter™ Studios in London wouldn't have existed without the production crew. After filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow – Part 2 in 2010, the production crew felt they wanted Potterheads to experience the filmmaking of the movies firsthand. They had enough props, artwork, and original material to showcase and returned to set up the sets, costumes, props, and everything else. Warner Bros. then agreed to open the Studio Tour on 31st March 2012.

Three years later, Platform 9¾ inside the Studios was expanded by 20,000 square feet (1,858 square meters). Warner Bros. brought the original Hogwarts Express back to give visitors an unforgettable ride. Since then, Warner Bros. Studios has added interactive events to give visitors an even better experience. The sets, special effects, Arts Department, and other experiences take the visitors on a nostalgic journey on their studio tour, giving them a feel of the evolution through the eight Harry Potter movies.
