The legendary Platform 9 ¾ is now open at The Making Of Harry Potter at The Warner Bros Studio Tour. The Making Of Harry Potter tickets on sale now!

Warner Bros. Studio Tour has unveiled a 20,000ft² expansion, including the original Hogwarts Express steam engine and a recreation of Platform 9 ¾. The new, permanent section offers a glimpse into how some of the films’ most iconic scenes were created as well as give you the chance to climb aboard the train’s carriage and to pose with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the platform wall.

Officially opened on Thursday 19th March, the new, must-see section has been redesigned and built by many of the crew members who worked on the most successful film series of all time. Every inch of the platform’s glass roof, yellow brick walls and luggage racks, designed by Production Designer Stuart Craig, has been painstakingly reassembled by a team led by Construction Manager Paul Hayes and dressed by Set Decorator Rosie Goodwin. Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson has rigged the locomotive with special effects steam.
