Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is preparing to reopen to visitors with reduced capacity, social distancing, and enhanced cleaning protocols later this month.
The Studio Tour will reopen to guests on Thursday, Aug. 20, and will still be a pre-book attraction, as tickets for a timed tour must be booked in advance. Starting tomorrow, Aug. 6 at 1 p.m., guests will be able to book tickets online for visits through July 31, 2021.
“We’re thrilled to be able to open the doors to the Hogwarts Great Hall to visitors once again,” said Geoff Spooner, SVP and general manager of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. “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.”
Once reopened, guests will get to experience the Studio Tour’s special offering, A Celebration of Slytherin. For the first time ever, guests will walk through the Great Hall and see it decorated in Slytherin colors before seeing the Slytherin Common Room up close. A 25-foot section of the set, complete with authentic props and stone walls, will be on display during the exhibition, which has been extended until Nov. 12.
For safety, guests ages 11 and up will be required to wear a face mask or face covering for the duration of their visit. Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter will operate at a reduced capacity to help encourage social distancing, and additional signage and floor marking will be in place to help visitors navigate the attraction safely. Enhanced cleaning will take place throughout the day, and hand sanitizer stations will be set up throughout the tour.
To further limit contact, the Studio Tour’s shops and cafés will only accept cashless or contactless payment. To learn more, visit WBStudioTour.co.uk.
