Dear Harry Potter fans, grab all your galleons, sickles and knuts because Gringotts is coming to the UK. The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will bring the original set of Gringotts Wizarding Bank in a new permanent attraction, which will span 16, 500 sqft that will be more than enough to offer a whole host of magical features.
New muggles, wizards, and witches will be able to make their way through the magical banking hall including marble pillars and crystal chandeliers, just like Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson did during filming.
But that’s not the only surprise, as you will also get to enter the Lestrange vault which will be filled with treasures and props, including the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup. It got tons of goblins hard at work, plus, you’ll get to see all the costumes and prosthetics used to create magical beings.

In fact, if you did not know, each prosthetic mask took weeks to create, where every hair was placed individually, and veins were painstakingly painted by hand. But, I bet that you did not know that it literally took four hours to transform Warwick Davis into goblin Griphook in the movies. Sure there will be more secrets to discover such as close-ups of props such as the inkwells, quills, ledgers, and piles of Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts, but the Studio Tour is enough for now! Plus, it will also be unveiling a brand new lobby and cafe, serving goods and treats inspired by those in the Wizarding World.
Although the Wizarding Bank will be opening on April 6, 2019, tickets are already on sale on their website, coming at 43 pounds for adult tickets, and 35 pounds for child tickets. So excited!
