The History of Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour


As soon as the movies shot to fame, the production crew began setting up its headquarters at Leavesden. A stroke of foresight led to the crew saving props and sets for the later movies. As such, the possibility of a studio tour was born. As soon as filming of the final movie was wrapped in 2010, the studio began working towards making the sets and props available to the fans. After 2 years of hard work, Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour was finally inaugurated on March 31, 2012. Since then, the Studio Tour has been consistently secured the top spot among tourist attractions as rated by TripAdvisor users.
