The Making of Harry Potter

Warner Bros has bought Leavesden Studios and has spent £100m on creating a visitor attraction for Harry Potter fans.

Many of the props and set pieces from filming were carefully stored at Leavesden immediately after filming, and have been imaginatively displayed for Harry Potter fans to see up close.
The ‘Making Of Harry Potter’ Studio Tour opened in 2012 – see the official Warner Bros Studio Tour website to book tickets (https://www.wbstudiotour.co.uk) or read more information here.
