The Forbidden Forest:
The forbidden forest was first seen in Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and has been painstakingly recreated at this magical Harry Potter world. This epic area is traditionally a no-go area for students but is where Harry and his friends have some of their most exciting adventures. In its recreation at the studio, you’ll get to see the giants spiders including a massive version of Aragog, amazingly tall trees and spooky vegetation.
Take a trip down Diagon Alley, the Wizarding shopping street full of restaurants, shops, and other sights. Discover this magical world of Harry Potter, pass the Leaky Cauldron pub on your way in, and enter the alley which is completely hidden from the muggle world surrounding it. The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London has recreated some iconic places such as Gringotts Wizarding Bank. You’ll also see the boarded-up windows of Florean Fortescue Ice Cream Parlour and the joke shop named Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.
The Great Hall:
Enter the Great Hall which is the main meeting space in Hogwarts Castle. Four long tables surround the room which is used for eating, with the staff table (the High Table) at the top. You’ll get to see the Throne Chair where the headteachers sit, as well as amazing decorations like the floating candles. The Great Hall has been recreated in this magical Harry Potter world and this is the first thing you’ll see upon entering!
The potions classroom was located in one of the dungeons of Hogwarts Castle and was used for teaching potions. The studio has recreated over 950 potion jars, each filled with interesting objects like shrunken heads or dried bones. The room at the studio was used in the filming of both Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
