Sign your muggles up to Howarts and relive the Harry magic
Ever wondered what the Great Hall at Hogwarts looks like in real life? Ever dreamed of touching the costumes worn by Emma Watson or seeing the Nimbus 2000 up close?
Located at studios in Leavesden, Watford where all eight of the infamous Harry Potter films were made, this unique walking tour takes you behind-the-scenes and showcases a huge array of beautiful sets, costumes and props.
The tour also reveals some closely guarded secrets, including facts about the special effects and breathtaking animatronics that made these films so hugely popular all over the world.
Bakers Dolphin Sales and Marketing Director Amanda Harrington said: “We are taking fans from all over the South West on the trip of a lifetime to the ‘Making of Harry Potter Tour’. This tour provides an inside look at the film-making process where you can visit iconic locations and learn how JK Rowling’s fantasy world became reality.
“This is the first studio in the UK to open its doors like this and the first time a tour has focused on a film franchise alone so it’s a really exciting attraction for the British film industry. The scale of the studio is phenomenal and I guarantee if you visit you will be completely caught up in Harry magic and astounded at the details you don’t get to see on screen.
“Lots of people will be finding the magic ticket in their stocking this year, it’s the perfect present and I have no doubt we will be completely sold out.”
The tour, set in the 150,000sq ft studio, lasts approximately three-hours, with only part of it being guided, giving visitors plenty of time and flexibility to enjoy the attraction at leisure. Most of the tour is interactive and fully hands-on meaning fans can get up close and personal to the familiar objects made famous on screen.
Opening in Spring 2012, Bakers Dolphin is offering day trips to the tour on 28 May, 4 July and 8 August with tickets costing £52.50 for adults and £42.50 for children with prices including travel and entrance.
