Post Tom Felton unveils new Herbology greenhouses sets at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter invited a friend over to show off the new Herbology greenhouses, set to be open to fans worldwide on July 1.

Tom Felton stopped by the studio tour at Watford, UK, to check out Professor Sprout's greenhouses, encountering mandrakes and much more.


Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series, came face-to-face with a shrieking mandrake plant as he revealed Professor Sprout’s Greenhouse for the very first time. The new expansion opens at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter on July 1st, and is part of a brand new feature titled ‘Mandrakes and Magical Creatures’.

Brand-new for 2022, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London is opening the glass doors of Professor Sprout’s greenhouse - a fan-favourite set from the Harry Potter film series, where students were taught their Herbology lessons with Professor Pomona Sprout. Built by the original Harry Potter filmmakers, the greenhouse is home to many exotic and magical plants. Just like a Hogwarts student, visitors to the Studio Tour will be able to step into the greenhouse and stop to pull out a potted Mandrake as part of an interactive display.

Just like his on-screen character, Draco Malfoy, Tom Felton held up a mandrake plant and heard its famous shrieking. He was able to experience the iconic greenhouse setting from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the first time since filming over 20 years ago. Felton looked up at the Venomous Tentacula hanging from the ceiling inside the greenhouse, as well as the dragon sculptures decorating the outside.

During filming, various techniques were used to achieve the movement of the magical plants. The sinuous grasping movement of the Tentacula’s tendrils was computer-generated, however, the movement of the Mandrakes was achieved using animatronic controllers hidden beneath the table.

The humanoid-looking mandrake plants may look scary, but they had a very important purpose in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. When the Chamber of Secrets was opened for a second time, many students ended up petrified by the Basilisk, a legendary giant reptile. Professor Sprout was given the task of growing her Mandrakes to full-size, so that they could be cut up and stewed for a Mandrake Restorative Draught.

The greenhouse is a permanent addition to the Studio Tour and will open as part of a brand-new feature, Mandrakes and Magical Creatures, which will open on 1st July and run until 12th September 2022. As part of the feature, visitors will be welcomed into the Great Hall to the Frog Choir scene as seen in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, featuring the costume of conductor of the choir, Professor Flitwick, as worn by Warwick Davis.

In addition to the exciting addition of Professor Sprout’s greenhouse, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will be expanding the exterior sets in their backlot with new additions including the fountain from the Hogwarts courtyard and a 1:3 scale-version of the Weasleys’ Burrow.

Professor Sprout’s greenhouse, the courtyard fountain and the exterior of the Weasleys’ Burrow will be permanent additions to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. The Mandrakes and Magical Creatures feature will run from 1st July 2022.
