In collaboration with Warner Bros., Thinkwell opened Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter in 2012. Dozens of original sets and hundreds of authentic costumes and props are showcased in a 150,000 square foot (14,000 sqm) soundstage. Over 100 minutes of original media featuring the cast and crew immerses guests in the exceptional creativity and craftsmanship that brought the films to life and goes behind the scenes with an award-winning handheld Digital Guide narrated by cast member Tom Felton.

Since opening in 2012, Thinkwell has continued to collaborate with Warner Bros. on various expansions and upgrades to the tour, including the addition of the original Hogwarts Express steam engine and a recreation of Platform 9 3⁄4, as well as an expansion to invite guests into Gringott’s Bank. These expansions are part of the remarkable, one-of-a-kind attraction that explores the cinematic history of Harry Potter at the very studio where the entire series was filmed for over a decade.

The award-winning attraction has welcomed more than 10 million guests since opening and continues to be one of the highest-grossing attractions in the world.
