NEW Gringotts Wizarding Bank
"Gringotts, the wizard bank! Ain't no safer place. Not one. Except perhaps Hogwarts." ~ Rubeus Hagrid
This fantastic new edition to the tour will give you the opportunity to explore the magnificent Gringotts Wizarding Bank. Marvel at the crystal chandeliers and marble pillars of the grand banking hall and see what treasures are being hidden in the depths of the Lestrange Vault, including the Sword of Gryffindor and one of Voldemort’s horcruxes.
The impressive 16500sqft set will be the biggest addition to the Studio Tour and has been designed by many of the original crew members who worked on the magical film series, so it’s sure to be a spectacle to behold!

The Forbidden Forest
The Forbidden Forest may be off-limits to Hogwarts Students, but for the first time you are invited to defy Professor Dumbledores’s orders and follow in the footsteps of Harry, Ron and Hermione deep into the grounds of the Forbidden Forest.
The Forbidden Forest offers shelter and protection to Hippogriffs and Acromantula, among others. It is also well known to beloved half-giant Hagrid in his role as Care of the Magical Creatures professor. One of Rubeus Hagrid’s original costumes will be on display, lantern in hand, to welcome you to the forest. Filed with 19 trees each with a diameter of over 12 feet, you will walk beneath the giants entwined roots on your journey and will even be able to control the weather using the same techniques used by the filmmakers.
