Broomsticks at the ready, a giant Harry Potter exhibition and butterbeer bar has landed in London and you’re invited.

Last month saw Warner Bros. announce a brand new UK exhibition and it’s just arrived in Covent Garden, bringing with it all of the magic, polyjuice potions and behind-the-scenes action of the famed franchise. 

Open in Covent Garden from 12th July, the Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition will see fans journey through the memories of the ten years spent creating the spellbinding films. On display will be hundreds of behind-the-scenes images, never before in one place.

Hundreds of iconic photographs will be on display, showcasing key moments in the film series, from Harry’s first journey from Platform 9 ¾ through to the Battle of Hogwarts in the film finale. Wizarding fans will see where all of the magic was first introduced, uncovering areas inspired by the Ministry of Magic and the famous King’s Cross station. 

Areas will be dedicated to the Muggle world too, as seen in Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The witches and wizards joining the exhibition tour will be encouraged to grab their Hogwarts cloaks and climb up onto a broomstick and learn how Harry and his crew were made to fly. Strike a pose as you ride over London, just like Potter – it’s in front of a green screen so it really feels a little magical when you see it on the photo printout.

No Harry Potter experience is complete without a pint of Butterbeer and the attraction will house London’s only bottled Butterbeer bar! Enjoy Ron’s favourite drink served in a souvenir tankard or take a bottle home to be enjoyed at home, in your own dorm. The soft drink features a fun new take on the butterscotch flavour too. 

It’s made and brewed in the UK and the glass bottle features an exclusive collectible label designed by MinaLima, the design duo known for their graphic props in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films. 

A fun attraction for all the family, this is one experience Potterheads won’t want to miss.
