Warner Bros have announced plans to throw open the studios where the movies were made, allowing Muggles to visit some of the films’ locations.
Visitors will be able to wander through the Great Hall at Hogwarts, hang out in the Gryffindor common room and squeeze into Hagrid’s hut.
They will also see the animation techniques used to create creatures such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff, giant spider Aragog and Fawkes the phoenix at a creature-effects workshop.
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe paid tribute to the huge set where he spent ten years playing the boy wizard.
‘It was such a magical place to grow up,’ said Radcliffe, 22.
‘People will be amazed to see the incredible environment we’ve worked in all these years.’
Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley, added: ‘The sets 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.’
The behind-the-scenes tour of the 14,000sq m (150,000sq ft) set at Leavesden studios in Hertfordshire is expected to open in spring of next year.
Studio bosses said it will showcase the British skills that went into bringing the film series to life.
‘We’re thrilled that fans will soon experience the award-winning artistry and talent that lovingly went into producing the sets, props, costumes and effects of this record-breaking film series,’ said Sarah Roots, of Warner Bros.
