There are a range of Harry Potter-inspired installations at the Celebrate Hogwarts experience. Visitors will get the chance to climb Hogwarts’s moving staircases, take a seat in the Gryffindor common room and pay Hagrid’s hut a visit.

You will also get witness a life-sized recreation of the iconic Hogwarts Express train, chuffing its way out of platform 9 and 3/4, and most forbiddingly, take a walk through the Forbidden Forest – the whomping willow’s stomping ground.
