The Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition takes fans behind-the-scenes of their favourite Harry
The Wizarding World is recognised as one of the world’s best-loved franchises, representing a vast, interconnected universe which touches all aspects of fans’ lives. Warner Bros. UK invites fans to journey through the memories of the 10 years spent creating filmmaking magic in a display of behind-the-scenes images, never before seen in one place. Housing hundreds of iconic photographs, the Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition takes fans behind the camera during key moments in the film series, from Harry’s first journey from Platform 9 ¾ (one of many iconic moments from the first film, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary) through to the Battle of Hogwarts from the final film in the series.
Located in Covent Garden, the attraction showcases hundreds of exclusive images never before seen together, along with a selection of genuine props and costumes that featured in the film series. Fans can discover areas inspired by the Ministry of Magic and Platform 9 ¾. The Exhibition also shows how the magic continues to live on in the Muggle world, with areas dedicated to Harry Potter and the Cursed Childand Fantastic Beasts.
After taking in the behind-the-scenes imagery, fans can strike a pose in a number of green screen photo opportunities. Using green screen technology, fans can pose while riding a broomstick over London, just like Harry and his friends. Aspiring witches and wizards can put on a Hogwarts robe, climb on to a broomstick and see how the cast of the series were made to fly. For the first time ever, fans can even pose for their very own Ministry of Magic Identification Card.
The Photographic Exhibition is also home to London’s only bottled Butterbeer bar! Fans can enjoy the wizard’s drink of choice served in a souvenir tankard at the exhibition’s Butterbeer bar, or take a bottle away to enjoy at home. Made and brewed in the U.K, bottled Butterbeer has a style which is entirely unique and comes in beautifully crafted souvenir glass bottles, each one featuring an exclusive collectible label designed by MinaLima, the design duo behind the graphic props of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beastsfilms. Best served chilled and poured straight from the bottle, the delicious soft drink features a new take on the butterscotch flavour fans know and love. The unique blend of top-secret ingredients makes bottled Butterbeer a must try for any aspiring witch or wizard.
Fans will enter the Butterbeer bar, a space inspired by the medieval Butterbeer label, and be invited to take a seat inside a Butterbeer barrel or a copper brewing tank to enjoy their refreshing wizarding drink and treats inspired by the wizarding world.
The experience ends with a gift shop packed full of fan-favourite products including house robes, character wands and bottled Butterbeer.
