Post Warner Bros Studio Tour London debuting new 'Prisoner of Azkaban' film sets & more

To tie in with the 20th anniversary theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will open its doors to the Divination classroom for the first time to fans, the Boggart wardrobe and sinister Boggart jack-in-the-box in Defense Against the Dark Arts, and the interior of the Knight Bus, starting May 1 through September 4. More highlights can be found here:
  • The grand teacup tower holding over 500 vintage teacups
  • Guests can try their hand at the art of reading tea leaf signs
  • The Monster book of Monsters go on a rampage in Harry's room at the Leaky Cauldron
  • Hogwarts Frog Choir in the Great Hall, under an enchanted ceiling filled with 100 floating candles
  • Original costumes worn by Harry, Ron, Hermione and Professor Trelawney



This summer, Harry Potter fans are invited to visit Warner Bros. Studio Tour London to discover the filmmaking magic behind Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, as fan-favourite moments from the film are celebrated 20 years after the cinematic release in 2004.

Brand new for 2024, the Studio Tour is inviting visitors to broaden their minds and cast themselves into the future by exploring the noble art of Divination. For the first time ever, the Divination classroom set will be on display and ready to welcome visitors.

First seen during Harry’s third year at Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the Divination classroom plays a key role in the film’s plot, revealing omens of the imminent danger Harry faces. During Divination classes, Hogwarts students are encouraged to broaden their minds and cast themselves into the future and are seen in the film performing Tessomancy, the magical art of reading tea leaves, and looking into crystal balls to divine their futures.

To some eagled eyed fans, the Defence Against the Dark Arts and Divination classrooms may feel familiar. During filming Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, filmmakers re-dressed the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom to become the lush, fabric-covered Divination classroom we see on-screen. When designing the look and feel of the set, filmmakers started with the idea of a traditional tea shop, with students sitting in pairs at round tables surrounded by mismatched teacups stacked high around the set. From there, the room was draped in rich red fabric and decorated with jewel-toned velvet pouffes, numerous patterned rugs and Arabian-style lanterns, creating a classroom in which eccentric Professor Trelawney would feel at home.

For the first time, fans are invited to discover the set up-close and take in the hidden details. Fans will remember the iconic moment Professor Trelawney discovers the Grim, an omen of death, in Harry’s cup. During the feature, the original teacup will be displayed at the Studio Tour and visitors are invited to interpret the tea leaf sign themselves. Additionally, the grand teacup tower holding over 500 vintage teacups will be on show as well as original costumes worn by Harry, Ron, Hermione and Professor Trelawney.

A new year at Hogwarts means a new Defence Against the Dark Arts professor, and visitors will find a new section of the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom on display, complete with the Art Nouveau-style Boggart wardrobe and sinister Boggart jack-in-the-box, as seen in the third film.

Also new to the Studio Tour, visitors have the chance to discover the interior of the Knight Bus as a full cross-section of the set will be displayed. To create the Knight Bus, filmmakers welded a third deck onto a traditional London bus before painting it the now iconic shade of purple. Fans will see the Knight Bus in action as the set rattles and the beds move, just as they did when bus driver Ernie made his bumpy ride through London.

Other highlights of Return to Azkaban include stepping foot into the magnificent Great Hall under an enchanted ceiling filled with over 100 floating candles, before being regaled by the Hogwarts Frog Choir and seeing The Monster Book of Monsters go on a rampage in Harry’s room at the Leaky Cauldron.

Return to Azkaban will run from 1st May – 4th September and all new features are included in the ticket price.
