Serving as the backdrop to some of the film series’ most iconic scenes such as the Yule Ball and the Battle of Hogwarts, the Great Hall was first built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2000 and was used as a key set for six more films. The spectacular Great Hall includes the costumes of students from each Hogwarts house plus two large tables which are set for dinner; at the top of the room is the teachers’ table where the Hogwarts Professors sat. The Great Hall is home to some of the beautiful hand crafted props created for the Harry Potter film series including Professor Dumbledore’s lectern and the House Points Counter. Though rarely seen on screen, it is rumoured that when the House Points Counter was first built it caused a national shortage of Indian glass beads.
See where the magic is made on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. The Leavesden studios were home to the Harry Potter film series for more than ten years.
Housed within its walls are all the iconic sets, costumes and props that brought the best-selling book series to life on the silver screen.

As the Harry Potter books were still being published when production began on the movie adaptations, the production crew decided to hold on to many of the sets, costumes and props, should they be needed at a later date. This meant that when production finally wrapped in 2010 on Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Leavesden was left with enough movie memorabilia to fill a vault in Gringotts!
Now they have opened their doors to the public, allowing you to explore JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, and learn the secrets behind the magic.
