On the weekend of 1st and 2nd June we have two tours travelling to the Making of Harry Potter, a permanent exhibit at Warner Bros Studios near Watford.
The exhibit is simply a must for all fans of the JK Rowling film series, with film sets including The Great Hall, where some of the film series’ most iconic scenes such as the Yule Ball and the Battle of Hogwarts, took pace.
The Forbidden Forest was a combination of location and studio shooting, an has now been moved entirely to the Studio for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in order to house Aragog’s lair and continued to grow throughout the film series.
While shooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, scenic artists created backdrops that were up to six hundred feet in length. The Forbidden Forest seen at the Studio Tour is filled with 19 trees each with a diameter of over 12 feet.
Other highlights include the legendary Hogwarts Express (departing from platform 9 3/4 of course) which has signalled the beginning of many a school year, and The Diagon Alley, a set that has constantly changed throughout the film series.
Adult price is £70 and child price £56 - this includes a choice of convenient deprture points, Mansfield, Arnold, Nottingham and Derby.
Tickets will go, so why not join us for this magical day out?
