Check out my latest post on Travel + Leisure's "Carry On" blog. I absolutely love the world of Harry Potter: England! Boarding school! Adventure! Everything. It all boils down to 7 incredible books. I'm determined to make it to this new studio tour in 2012 and think it's an absolutely brilliant business decision by Warner Bros.
Harry Potter Studios in England to Open for Behind-the-Scenes Tour
"If you found yourself tearing up at the end of the last Harry Potter movie this summer, fear not, Muggles! For those utterly addicted to the Harry Potter universe and those who simply want to tour a piece of movie-making history, the franchise lives on. Tickets are available beginning October 13, 2011 for the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London—The Making of Harry Potter, at Leavesden, opening in Spring 2012. Tack on an extra day to a London visit and bring your broomstick for this insider’s look.
Over three hours, the sprawling tour will cover 150,000 square feet of props, costumes, and special effects exhibitions from all eight of the movies, alongside the actual sets for the Great Hall, Gryffindor Common Room, and Hagrid’s Hut. Each display will celebrate the primarily British talent that went into creating the franchise, including the three young stars."
