HARRY POTTER fans gave phone operators and internet wizards ear ache this morning as tickets for the new The Making of Harry Potter attraction went on sale.
Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the movies, spoke for many fans when she said: “It’s been a long time coming and I’m very excited.”
Featuring many of the famous sets from the eight-film series, The Making of Harry Potter is set to become one of London’s most sought after new tourist spots, although it is just outside the capital around Watford way, if we’re being pedantic.
Among the sets ready and waiting for visitors are: The Hogwarts Great Hall; Dumbledore’s office; Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive; 4 Privet Drive itself; the Gryffindor common room and the Hogwarts bridge.
“The sets all have tiny little details that you may not always notice in the films, but when you actually walk through them, you can see all the work that’s gone into it,” said Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the Potter films.
Ticket prices for The Making of Harry Potter start at £28 for adults, £21 for children and £83 for a family of four. They’re available via LondonNet here.
