Harry Potter’s Warner Bros Studio Tour will welcome the Wizarding Wardrobes exhibition on 21st July, giving fans of the franchise a chance to see some of the magical ensembles worn in the film series.
Running until 4th September, the showcase will contain over 25,000 unique items of clothing created for the movies. These include more than 600 Hogwarts school robes and Hermione Granger’s magnificent Yule Ball Gown.
Covering every stage of the process from initial sketches to the final costume, the feature will give visitors a behind-the-scenes insight into the techniques and ideas that brought the characters to life.
Along with costumes worn by the main stars Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, the exhibition will also feature ensembles worn by characters such as the Daily Prophet reporter Rita Skeeter and professors Lupin, Umbridge and Lockhart.
As well as exhibitions focusing on the outfits, the film’s hair and make-up teams will be on hand to show how they created features such as Harry’s lightning bolt scar and Bellatrix LeStrange’s mysterious look.
In addition to the Wizarding Wardrobes exhibition, all of the usual attractions of the Warner Bros Studio Tour will be present. Visitors can explore iconic areas such as The Great Hall, Diagon Alley, Dumbledore’s Office and the Gryffindor Common Room.
Other spectacular sites to explore include 4 Privet Drive - the home of Harry’s Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon - and the Knight Bus.
Along with the stunning movie sets, visitors can take a look at how scenery was made, starting from the sketching phase to the final product.
After fans have spent some time exploring the Wizarding World, they can take a look at the merchandise shop. Take the chance to pick up an exclusive memento or try some delicious butterbeer!
Clothes and souvenirs are available from all four houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Visitors can even pick up their favourite character’s specific wand.
What is the best way to get to the Warner Bros Studio Tour?
Based in Farnborough, around 20 miles away from central London, the Warner Bros Studio Tour can be reached in a number of ways.
However, while train services are available, the coach is perhaps the easiest and most convenient way to reach the attraction, especially for groups of travellers.
Buses are available throughout the day to make it easy for Potter fans to plan a day out that suits them. These services provide ample luggage space, Wi-Fi coverage and guaranteed seats, ensuring a comfortable journey for visitors.
