New UK Harry Potter attraction details and ticket information

It was announced today that tickets will be going on sale for London’s newest tourist attraction, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter on October 13th.

The tickets for what is sure to be an incredibly popular attraction when it opens next spring,  will be available online from a special website www.wbstudiotour.co.uk and will be priced at £28 for adults and £21 for children.

But what will fans get for their hard earned money, well from the sounds of this press release (that was sent out immediately following the panel), quite a lot as the attraction covers an impressive 150,000 square feet and the location of the experience is the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, which was the production home of the Harry Potter movies for the last ten years, a visit to which for a fair few Harry Potter fans would be enough right there.

But worry not, there is a lot more it seems, as fans will get the chance to walk on to some of the most iconic sets (sets that are spread across two dedicated soundstages) in movie history including and not limited to, the Great Hall, Dumbledores office, the Gryffindor common room and Hagrids Hut. Fans will also have the chance to see some of the films real life animatronics as part of a Creature Effects workshop that will include Buckbeak the Hipogriff, Aragog, Fawkes the phoenix and the enormous Basilisk head.

A closer look at the website also indicates that each ticket will have a set (no pun intended) time allocated to it and that the tour is estimated to last approximately 3 hours. The website also mentions that as the attraction (The site also clearly indicates that this is no theme park) develops it may also incorporate elements of other Warner Bros. productions both current and future. Whilst the site gives no definitive names of what productions these maybe, it does mention that the studios is the home of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movies and so there is certainly some hope for movie fans of a very bright future for the attraction once the magic of Harry Potter dwindles.

As said above the tickets will go on sale on October 13th and can be purchased from www.wbstudiotour.co.uk, where fans can also register for future updates on this exciting attraction that is sure to get Harry Potter fans the world over whipped up into a frenzy once more.
