The Making of Harry Potter

Fans will be able to visit Gringotts in England

The Gringotts Wizarding Bank set will be open for visiting in the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, located in the greater London area. Fans will be able to walk through the Wizarding Bank and visit, for example, the Lestrange vault and the goblins gallery.

With over 16 thousand square meters, the expansion of the Gringotts Wizarding Bank will open on April 6th, 2019 and will be included in the tour ticket. The new area will also have a Cafe with Wizarding World foods and beverages.

Lined by marble pillars, the bank hall will be decorated with three crystal chandeliers. The goblins’ tables will be decorated with inkwells, quills, books, and piles of Galleons, Sickles and Knuts, as seen in the Harry Potter films. The Prop-making department, led by Pierre Bohanna, created over 210.000 coins for both Deathly Hallows films.

Griphook’s, Bogrod’s and other goblins’ costumes and prosthetics will also be exposed. Each prosthetic took two weeks to be finalized, as they were painted by hand with every hair individually inserted.

The Lestrange vault will have many treasures, including the Sword of Godric Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup – one of Voldemort’s many Horcruxes. During filming, 38.000 pieces of rubberized treasures, including over 7.000 Hufflepuff Cups were made to fill the Lestrange vault.
