Warner Bros. on Location London Presents the “Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition”

Lately, Harry Potter fans have been treated to plenty of surprises: Theme parks and studio tours have started to reopen, and New York opened its very own Harry Potter store. Now, Londoners can get ready to have some magical fun of their own at the Warner Bros. on Location London Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition, which is opening on July 12.

Get ready for one wild magical ride. This exhibition, located in Covent Garden, London, is bound to be unlike anything you’ve seen before. It will take you on a behind-the-scenes journey of ten years of filmmaking. There will be a big display of iconic production photographs that have never been displayed in one place before. These will focus on key moments in the film series – from Harry’s first day at Hogwarts to the epic battle in the final film.

 

 

To top it off, you can also experience green screen technology for yourself and take a broom ride over London. Make sure to dress in your best Hogwarts robes for this one. After that, take a moment to imagine that you’re about to visit Mr. Weasley at the Ministry of Magic by taking pictures inside a London phone booth. You’ll also have the opportunity to pose for your own Ministry of Magic identification card.

All these magical shenanigans are bound to make you thirsty, which will lead you straight to one of the most exciting attractions at the exhibition: London’s one and only bottled butterbeer bar. Get ready to feel like you’re stepping back in time – the interior is designed to match the medieval butterbeer label. This bar’s butterbeer promises to be unlike any you’ve tasted before. It is made and brewed in the United Kingdom and features a whole new take on the familiar butterscotch flavor. You can drink it at the bar from a souvenir tankard, or take a bottle home to enjoy later. You’ll also notice that the bottles each feature magical collectible labels designed by MinaLima. While you’re there, you can imagine enjoying your delicious drink with the golden trio at the Three Broomsticks.

 

The butterbeer will flow at Harry Potter New York.

 

Before you leave, you can also visit the gift shop, which will be stocked with magical goodies from the wizarding world.

If you’re ready to go on this magical adventure, you can grab tickets for the exhibition here. They’re bound to sell fast, so make sure you get yours as soon as possible.

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
