Harry Potter fans have a new reason to visit the popular Warner Bros Studio Tour from March 19th – the attraction bow boasts not only the Hogwarts Express steam train, but platform 9 3/4 itself.
The new 20,000 square foot expansion includes the iconic train platform and steam train that Harry and his friends travelled on to get to Hogwarts, and visitors will be able to board the train themselves and post with a luggage trolley appearing through the platform wall. Designed by many of the crew members who worked on the movies, this is the original train and set from the movie, reassembled for fans, complete with special effects steam.
We’ll report from the Studios about the new addition as soon as we can, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of the attraction which was launched by actor Mark Williams (aka Arthur Weasley) earlier this week. For more information about all the other things to see at the Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making Of Harry Potter, go to the official website here.
