You Can Now Tour Harry Potter’s Childhood Home
Harry Potter fans – it’s time to get excited. Number 4 Privet Drive is about to be open to the public. From Friday, May 27 to Monday, June 6, fans of the series can tour Harry Potter’s childhood home.
In honor of the 15th anniversary of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone film release, Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London is offering fans the chance to explore the home.
During the tour, fans will be able to see hundred of Hogwarts letters, addressed to Mr. H. Potter, suspended in the air. MinaLima, the graphic designers for all eight Harry Potter films, created the vast array of letters to give the feeling of being in the moment with Harry.
Also on display in the Dursley family home will be the costumes worn by the family in the film. Designed by Judianna Makovsky, the clothing itself was created to look “out of date and pretentious,” according to the Warner Bros. Studio, so it could very easily match the personalities of the Dursleys.
The designers of the home were also tasked with finding “quirky pieces of furniture and had lots of fun sourcing the ugliest sofas, worst tiles and most unattractive curtains possible,” reports Mashable. So, be sure to expect many out-dated pieces at every turn.
If you’re looking to buy tickets for the tour, head to the Warner Bros Studio tour website for further details.
