Have you been reliving the magic of Harry Potter during lockdown? Whether that’s reading the books or watching the films – there’s some good news for all Harry Potter fans out there. The Harry Potter Studio Tour in London has announced it’s opening it’s doors again on the 20th August, with tickets on sale from today! 

The ever-changing scenery means there’s always something new to see at the Warner Bros.

Known for their ambition and links to dark magic, Slytherin house is home to some of the greatest wizards of all time. The Making of Harry Potter invites you to discover the secrets behind some of the iconic costumes and props belonging to your favourite cunning Slytherin characters.

Or if you’re planning a future trip and are looking for something a bit more festive, the annual Hogwarts in the Snow feature will be running from 14th November till 17th January 2021. Make sure to book your tickets in advance now as spaces are filling up fast.

But what does this mean for my group?
