Harry Potter is eternal. Head over to the Warner Bros. Harry Potter London sets to know why. Set in Leavesden, the Harry Potter™ Studio Tour takes guests on a whirlwind tour of the actual film sets of the famous movie. Discover the Great Hall that once seated Harry, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, and He Who Must Not Be Named. Dare the tour of the Forbidden Forest through its deep, entwined roots and creatures you've never seen. Finish off the Harry Potter™ Studio Tours by boarding the Hogwarts Express standing pretty on Platform 9 ¾. While most of the scenes featuring Platform 9 ¾ were shot at King's Cross Station in London, parts from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 were filmed in the recreated version at Leavesden.
Few locations in the Harry Potter movies held greater significance than the Great Hall. Harry was assigned to Gryffindor in the Great Hall, and it served as the backdrop in the Battle of Hogwarts in the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. It is as important as many characters in the movies, so it has been carefully preserved. You can see where the professors sat and check out students' costumes from each Hogwarts house in the Great Hall set.
Platform 9 ¾ was the start and end of Harry Potter. It brought Harry to the world of magic in the Philosopher's Stone, and years later, his son, Albus Severus Potter, set for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the same place. This makes Platform 9 ¾ one of the most intriguing sets in Harry Potter™ Studio Tours London. You can explore the entire set and board the iconic Hogwarts Express.
Every location evolved with Harry Potter movies. Diagon Alley was no different. Its shops, buildings, and construction constantly changed, but the Diagon Alley set inside Warner Bros. Studios retains the best of it from different Harry Potter movies. From Gringotts Bank and Flourish and Blotts to Ollivander's wand shop, the Diagon Alley set in Harry Potter™ Studios is unmissable.
Regular people run most banks. Gringotts was special because it was managed by goblins. Yes, goblins. Fortunately, the bank itself wasn't diminutive, sporting amazing marble pillars and a grand banking hall with crystal chandeliers. You can see its grandeur at the Harry Potter™ Studios and wonder what Harry, Ron, and Hermione gained from destroying the bank on a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon.
Herbology didn't get as much screen time as Dark Arts. Still, it was fun, especially the scene in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets where potted Mandrakes created havoc. Professor Sprout's GreenHouse as part of Harry Potter London sets has Mandrakes and other exotic and magical plants. Venomous Tentacula hanging from the ceiling are also an attraction at the GreenHouse.
