Ever wondered what the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry would look like from up close? Fans of Harry Potter will soon get the chance to get as close to the fictional location as they are ever likely to get. The incredibly detailed model of Hogwarts used in every one of the movies is set to go on display as part of the Warner Bros’ “The Making Of Harry Potter” studio tour in London from March 31.
The model measures 50 feet across and was built by production designer Stuart Craig along with 86 artists and crew members. More than 2,500 fiber optic lights were placed inside the model to simulate rooms being occupied. You may recognize parts of the model as Durham Cathedral and Alnwick Castle since they were used as basis for Hogwarts.
Visitors of the Harry Potter sets at Leavesden Studios will also be able to set foot in Diagon Alley, see Hogwarts’ Great Hall and explore Hagrid’s Hut among many attractions.
