History & Its Connection To Harry Potter
The Harry Potter film series made Leavesden it’s home for more than ten years. As the books were still being published while the film was in process, the production crew preserved many of the iconic sets, props, and costumes that were created especially for the movie – just in case they may be required for further scenes in series.
When the shooting was completed on the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” – Part 2 in 2010, the production crew was having a treasure trove of thousands of complex and beautifully-made artifacts, many of which were destroyed during pack up.
Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, their team wanted to display the making of Harry Potter and wanted to preserve and showcase these iconic props, costumes and sets so that Harry Potter fans could fantasize about the magic of filmmaking first-hand. Most of the real stars and crew returned to reassemble the sets and again lost into old memories from filming, and on 30th March 2012, the Studio Tour opened its doors.
Set besides to the working film studios where all eight Harry Potter parts were shotted, the Studio Tour offers visitors the special opportunity to explore two soundstages and a backlot filled with original sets, animatronic sculptures and breathtaking special effects.
