Starting July 12, 2021, Warner Bros. On Location London will present the Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition, offering fans a new way to experience the Wizarding World through behind-the-scenes images of favorite moments from the “Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts” films.
The exhibition at Covent Garden in London showcases hundreds of exclusive photographs that have never before been seen together that trace the 10 years of magical filmmaking from Harry’s first journey from Platform 9 ¾ — one of many iconic moments from the first film (which celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year) — through the Battle of Hogwarts from the final movie.
Wizarding World fans will be able to explore areas inspired by the Ministry of Magic and Platform 9 ¾ and see how the magic has lived on after the eight “Harry Potter” films, with areas dedicated to the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise (two epic films and the third releasing in 2022) and the award-winning “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” stage production.
After viewing the behind-the-scenes imagery, fans will be invited to become part of the magic themselves through several green screen photo opportunities, including donning a Hogwarts robe and climbing on a broomstick for a flight over London. Plus, for the first time ever, they can pose for their very own Ministry of Magic identification card.
The Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition will also be home to London’s only Butterbeer bar, a space inspired by the medieval Butterbeer label. Here, visitors will be invited to take a seat inside a Butterbeer barrel or copper brewing tank while they enjoy Harry Potter’s drink of choice served in a souvenir tankard.
Bottled Butterbeer, made and brewed in the U.K. from a unique blend of top-secret ingredients, will also be available for purchase featuring an exclusive collectible label designed by MinaLima, the design duo behind all the graphic props seen in the “Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts” films.
Admission to the Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition is £20 (about $28) for adults age 16+ and £14 (about $19) for kids age 5-15. Kids age 4 and under are free. There’s also a family ticket available for two adults and two kids or one adult and three kids for £56 (about $77). Tickets must be booked in advance.
