Gringotts may be the most notoriously difficult bank to enter in the world — at least, in the Harry Potter world — but now they’re letting just about anyone in. For the first time ever, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London — The Making of Harry Potter is offering a tour of the 16,500-square-foot set of Gringotts Wizarding Bank. The set served as the backdrop for some of the most epic scenes in the movies, including Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s polyjuice-fueled mission into Bellatrix Lestrange’s vault.
Lined with huge marble pillars, the grand banking hall will be decorated with massive crystal chandeliers and intricate details like inkwells, quills, ledgers, and piles of Galleons, sickles, and Knuts at the tellers’ desks. Visitors will also be able to see the costumes and prosthetics used by Bogrod, Griphook, and other goblin bankers. After the banking hall, visitors will be led through the Lestrange Vault, where the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup are housed in the film.
Opening on April 6, the bank is the studio’s largest addition to its behind-the-scenes set tours. Tickets must be booked in advance, and run $46 for children 15 and younger, and $56 for adults.
