Harry Potter’s Privet Drive to open to visitors
Categories: Kid Blog News




This month, visitors to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour will get their first chance to step inside Harry Potter’s home at Number Four, Privet Drive. The exterior set is being opened specially for the Studio Tour’s 15th anniversary celebrations of the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Previously, visitors have been restricted to photo ops at the front door only.

From the 27th May to the 6th June 2016, visitors will be able to walk through the front door and look into the Dursley’s front room.

Hundreds of Harry’s Hogwarts letters will be suspended in the air as though they’ve flown through the fireplace as they did in the iconic scene from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. 10,000 of these envelopes were created for the first Harry Potter film and were even printed on extra lightweight paper so the owls could carry them.

Inside Privet Drive

Harry Potter fans will remember number four, Privet Drive as the Muggle home where Harry spent most of his childhood with his Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon and Cousin Dudley. During production, set decorators were tasked with filling the house with quirky pieces of furniture and had lots of fun sourcing the ugliest sofas, worst tiles and most unattractive curtains possible.

In addition to the opening of Number four, Privet Drive, Warner. Bros Studio Tour London will be showcasing the equipment that was used to shoot Harry’s Hogwarts letters through the letterbox.

KBC has been to the Harry Potter HQ and we LOVE it. The studio, just north of London, is a must-visit for any Harry Potter fan.  You can read more about the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in our report of our last visit here.

Highlights include walking through the Great Hall where so many famous scenes were shot, seeing the treasures stored in Dumbledore’s office and strolling down Diagon Alley.

Tickets for a specific date and time slot must be pre-booked at or by calling the Studio Tour’s Visitor Services Team on 0345 084 0900 – you can’t buy them on the door.
