Gringotts Bank at HP Studio

Save your Galleons for a plane ticket — the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London just got more magical


WASHINGTON (AP) — "Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter" has offered a sneak peek at its biggest expansion to date, Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

The set, which will open to the public at the Leavesden site on April 6, sits at an impressive 16,500 square feet and will feature towering marble pillars and crystal chandeliers finished with real brass leaves.

While walking through the exhibit, visitors will get a chance to examine the costumes and prosthetics worn by the actors playing the bank's goblin staff in the Potter movies.

Once through the banking hall, visitors can explore the Lestrange Vault, where they can pose for photographs surrounded by treasure and marvel at props including the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff's Cup.

Warwick Davis, who played goblin Griphook in the films, was on hand at the Wizarding Bank preview, mingling with numerous actors who were made up to look like bank workers.

"Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter" first opened its doors in March 2012.
