The real London Harry Potter experience

If you fancy a  special day out then why not try the  “The Making of Harry Potter” Warner Bros. Studio Tour at Leavesden . Which is approximatly 25 miles from the centre of London.

Leavesden Studios is where a lot of the filming was done on all the movies and so a lot of the props and sets are there.

Here are some of the things you can expect to see and do on the tour:  Step inside and discover the actual Great Hall. Explore Dumbledore’s office and discover never-before-seen treasures. Step onto the famous cobbles of Diagon Alley, featuring the shop fronts of Ollivanders wand shop, Flourish and Blotts, the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium. See iconic props from the films, including Harry’s Nimbus 2000 and Hagrid’s motorcycle. Learn how creatures were brought to life with green screen effects, animatronics and life-sized models. Rediscover other memorable sets from the film series, including the Gryffindor common room, the boys’ dormitory, Hagrid’s hut, Potion’s classroom and Professor Umbridge’s office at the Ministry of Magic.

From  the 1st December 2012 to 6th January 2013  “The Making of Harry Potter Christmas Special”

The Studio Tour will showcase its Christmas additions over the festive period, beginning Saturday 1st December and ending Sunday 6th January. Eight Christmas trees will line the Great Hall, adorned with authentic decorations as they first appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone™. In the film, these decorations are levitated onto the trees by Professor Flitwick, played by Warwick Davies. The long dining tables will be dressed as they were for the seasonal feasts with turkey, hams, fruit, vegetables, plum puddings and snow cakes. The food featured in the feasts throughout the early films was real; however, the Set Decoration Department later used artificial food created from powder and resin. The Gryffindor common room, boys’ dormitory and Weasley kitchen will also undergo a seasonal transformation and visitors will see the hand-knitted jumpers that Molly Weasley gave Ron and Harry for Christmas in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone™. Other costumes on display include Harry’s first Christmas present at Hogwarts – his Invisibility Cloak – and the dress Luna Lovegood wore to the Slug Club Christmas party in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince™. It took over two months to make the four versions of the dress needed for filming which were adorned with 50 metres of real tinsel and 1000 individual crystals. Evanna Lynch, who played Luna, created the jewellery she wore with the costume and many of the other accessories she wore while filming. Visitors will also discover secrets behind the footprints in the snow, which were filmed for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ and appear when Harry sneaks into Hogsmeade under his Invisibility Cloak.
