The Harry Potter Studios in Leavesden

The filming of all eight Harry Potter films took 10 years in total to make. The studios in Leavesden was the place where all magic happened. Thousands of props, sets, and costumes were made and collected at Leavesden. When the filming came to an end, the majority of the items were put on display for Potter fans to experience. It is breathtaking to see all the hard work and incredible detail that went into producing the Potter movies. You can walk through the sets as if you are taking part in the film, and it is very exciting.

The props that you see are the very items visible on the screen in the films. There is also a fascinating section where you can learn how the animatronics work and how the special effects were added. The attraction is a walk-through tour in low lighting. There is a lot to see at London’s Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Breathtaking Movie Sets from Another World

Visitors of the movie studios highly appreciate the detailed and tenderly-crafted scenery of the fantasy/fiction movie. Besides the famous Great Hall with its incredible long dinner tables (we mean like really loooooooooooong!) you can walk through the Forbidden Forrest that has been seen in multiple Harry Potter episodes. But one thing is for sure under the most beloved ones: the Hogwarts Express locomotive on the platform 9¾. You probably heard that the Harry Potter scenes on the platform 9¾ have been recorded at London’s King’s Cross Station. But at Leavesden, they rebuild part of the scenery for ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ (part 2).

And lastly, the ‘Diagon Alley’ is opened for studio visitors and has an unbelievable amount of details that impress its visitors. The Diagon Alley’s most famous spots are definitely Flourish and Blotts, Mr. Mulpepper’s Apothecary, Gringotts Bank, and Ollivanders wand shop. Avada Kedavra!

Dive into Harry Potter’s World and Experience All The Special Effects

Besides a magnitude of detailed film sets, you’ll also have the chance to really dive into the Harry Potter world. With a broomstick. Yes, that is right. The green screen allows the filmmakers to replace the green color with background imagery that is fully computer-generated.

At the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London, you are able to ride a broomstick in front of the green screen and ultimately fly over London just like in the movies. Other special and visual effects that can be seen on the Harry Potter Tour in London include the invisible cloak, the Chamber of Secrets door, and the Whomping Willow. But wait – how can you actually see an INVISIBLE cloak? That’s a mystery that gets unveiled in Leavesden.

Leavesden is located in the north of London (Hertfordshire) and is home to the 80-hectare studio complex. The Warner Bros.
