Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - what to expect

The tour itself is a walking tour that on average takes around 4 hours. Warner Bros. Studio Tour is not a theme park and as such will not feature rides, or experiences of this nature.

 

The attraction will give visitors the first ever chance to go behind the scenes of the actual sets of the Harry Potter film series. Only a small part of the Studio Tour is guided so you can take the tour at your own pace.

 

Some parts of the tour are interactive and can be touched, some sections can be viewed and not touched.

Gringotts Bank expansion 2019 at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - the Lestrange Vault

Lestrange Vault in Gringotts Bank

Recent Warner Bros Studio Tour expansions - Gringotts Bank

In 2019 the studio launched their latest expansion - Gringotts Bank. A glittering exhibition featuring the magnificent banking hall, with crystal chandeliers and the goblin tellers’ desks as we remember them from the films, this one's not to be missed.

 

The detail extends to piles of Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts. You can even marvel at the painstakingly hand-created prosthetic masks of the goblin bankers.


In addition to the banking hall, you’ll also see the Lestrange vault, including the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup, one of Voldemort’s Horcruxes.


The exhibition is included with the normal entry ticket for The Making of Harry Potter.

 

You can find out about our experience of the exhibition by reading our blog on the Gringotts Bank expansion.
