Warner Bros. Announces Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience, Coming Soon to Cheshire

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to wander around the Forbidden Forest? While you can explore the Forbidden Forest from the Harry Potter films at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, a new attraction will take you even deeper into the forest than ever before! Today, July 21, Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and Thinkwell have announced the creation of Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience, and it’s coming to Arley Hall in Cheshire, England, later this year.

According to Wizarding World Digital, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the magical world.

Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience will make its debut in the beautiful woodlands of Arley Hall, where visitors will follow a luminescent pathway as evening falls, discovering magical creatures of the wizarding world. Harry Potter fans will know all too well some of the secrets of the Forbidden Forest that we see in the books and films, and you can be sure that this experience will feature some of the forest’s known inhabitants, such as [h]ippogriffs, centaurs, unicorns and much more. We’re sure you’re bound to spot a Niffler digging around somewhere too!

A “seasonally themed village” will provide visitors with the opportunity to grab food and beverages or even a few souvenirs to take home with them from their visit.
