Breaking rules was in Harry Potter’s DNA, but he was more rebellious about the Forbidden Forest than anything. Professor Dumbledore had ordered students to stay away from the dense, dark forest, but Harry didn’t care. He landed him (and Ron) in trouble countless times, but he kept visiting the place until the end. Fortunately, the Forbidden Forest isn’t off-limits for Harry Potter™ Studio Tour guests. You can explore the secrets within the forest, discover majestic beasts, touch Rubeus Hagrid’s original costumes, and see Aragog, the Acromantula.
Harry Potter™ Studios has several sets, with the Forbidden Forest being one of them. It is designed with the same spookiness as the one displayed in the Harry Potter movies. There are 19 trees measuring more than 12 feet each in the forest, entwined with each other. You can walk over them and wonder what you’ll find on the other side.
The Forbidden Forest was the home of majestic Harry Potter creatures. Remember Aragog, the Acromantula from the Chamber of Secrets? He lived in the Forbidden Forest along with the other members of his tribe. Buckbeak, the magnificent Hippogriff, also lived in the forest, and both can be seen on your visit. The incredible craftsmanship and detail that went into designing both creatures will blow you away!
Designing the Forbidden Forest wasn’t easy, but the Harry Potter film crew were determined to leave something lasting for the fans. You can watch and learn how the team built and designed the Forbidden Forest. The crew members included Oscar® and BAFTA-winning Production Designer Stuart Craig, Construction Manager Paul Hayes, BAFTA-winning Creature and Makeup Effects Designer Nick Dudman and BAFTA-winning Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson.
