Hogwarts is waiting! Yes, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London is opening its doors once again to visitors. Read on to learn about the plans to welcome you back with updated safety measures – and the return of special feature: A Celebration of Slytherin.

From 17th May, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will be inviting fans back to enjoy the iconic film sets, props and costumes from the Harry Potter films once again, after closing its doors in light of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.


Upon re-opening, the Studio Tour will be inviting guests back in a reduced capacity and instigating appropriate health and safety measures. Visitors will be required to wear face coverings, while the whole tour will, of course, be following social distancing guidelines.

Take a look at the Studio Tour’s official website to get the full list of protective guidelines that the staff will be putting in place to ensure you have a safe and happy experience during your visit.

Alongside all the usual sets, props and costumes on display, the Studio Tour will be inviting fans to visit their latest feature: A Celebration of Slytherin! Visitors will see the Great Hall set adorned in Slytherin’s house colours, and on top of that, will get to see the Slytherin common room! As seen for the first time in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, fans will be able to marvel at a 25-ft section of the set, featuring authentic props and the famous dungeon-style stone walls. The special feature will run until 15th September, so maybe you’d like to dust off your finest green ensembles if you do decide to visit.

If you have the Harry Potter Fan Club app, look out for our Enchanted Keys dotted around the displays to unlock a Slytherin inspired quiz trail.

Geoff Spooner, SVP & General Manager spoke of the tour re-opening again, reinstating the importance of the new safety measures.

‘We’re thrilled to be able to open the doors to the Hogwarts Great Hall to visitors once again,’ he said. ‘While the Studio Tour experience may differ from previous visits as we introduce additional safety measures, we’re looking forward to welcoming fans back into the world of Harry Potter for a truly magical day out.’
