Warner Bros. Harry Potter™ Studio Tour with Butterbeer, Souvenir and Special Guests

Warner Bros. Harry Potter Tour

The Tour

Once doors have closed to the public on Thursday 20 and 27 April and Friday 5 May, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will welcome Groupon members for an exclusive event. Available for entry from 5 pm, guests will be granted after-hours access to the Studio Tour, which showcases authentic sets, props and costumes from the Harry Potter film series.
Guests can walk the flagstones of the iconic Hogwarts Great Hall in all its glory before viewing many of the famous sets, including the Ministry of Magic, Dumbledore’s office, and the Gryffindor common room. Visitors will also get an exclusive look at the new permanent expansion – The Forbidden Forest which opens on 31 March.
The Forbidden Forest may be strictly off-limits to Hogwarts students, but Groupon guests are invited to follow the footsteps of Harry, Ron and Hermione deep into the forest, which is home to an abundance of creatures. Adventurers will be welcomed through the Hogwarts Gates by the beloved half-giant Hagrid deep into the forest which is filled with 19 trees each with a diameter of over 12 feet.
Visitors will walk beneath the giant entwined roots and will encounter a full size model of Buckbeak, which is new to the tour, and have the opportunity to bow to the majestic creature. As Groupon guests venture deeper into the depths of the forest, they will come face-to-face with Aragog, the Acromantula. Emerging from his dark lair, the enormous spider will appear before guests along with spiderlings from his family.
While exploring the attractions, attendees will also be able to enjoy experiences that have been specifically added for Groupon members like the special demonstration courtesy of Oscar®-winning Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson, from the Harry Potter film series. They’ll get the chance to learn wand moves and can ‘fly’ a broomstick like a member of the cast in the Studio Tour’s green screen experience.
During a short break in the attraction’s Backlot Cafe, guests will be able to enjoy a selected hot meal; a glass of wine, beer, hot or soft drink; and a Butterbeer™ served in a souvenir cup to take home. They’ll also get the chance to meet the Death Eaters as they patrol the Hogwarts Gates. All guests will receive a complimentary Forest edition of the souvenir guidebook on arrival and the tour will stay open until midnight on these special nights. On-site parking is available, as is a return shuttle bus from Watford Junction station if required.
