The Harry Potter locations you can visit
The Harry Potter tour at Warner Bros Studio has announced that it will be undergoing a 20,000ft expansion to include the original Hogwarts Express steam engine and a complete recreation of the famous Platform 9 ¾.
The Hogwarts Express used in filming, a British steam train named ‘Olton Hall’, will be returned to the Warner Bros Studio Tour to be put on display. Opening on the 19th March, visitors will be able to walk along the train’s adjoining carriage and sit in the interior carriage set that was used during filming.
Although seventeen years has passed since the release of J.K Rowling’s first novel, the franchise remains as popular as ever. The books have sold over 450 million copies and the films have made approximately £4.7 billion at the box office, making it one of the most successful franchises in history.
