For the safety of our colleagues and visitors, Behind the Seams Tours will not be running until further notice.

The Making of Harry Potter – Behind the Seams experience will allow you to discover first-hand the spellbinding secrets of the Costume Department that created over 25,000 unique items of clothing for the Wizarding World.

From initial sketches to the finished costume seen on screen, our tour experts will reveal the behind-the-scenes journey that brought your favourite characters to life. Presented in a workshop environment, you’ll be the first to see up close exclusive costumes never-before-seen at the Studio Tour. Discover how new clothes were made to look centuries old or battle-torn with the help of paint, mud and wire brushes, how every day garments were given a magical touch and the secrets hidden in the Hogwarts robes.

You will also receive the exclusive opportunity to choose your house colours and wear an original Hogwarts robe which appeared on screen in the Harry Potter film series. The secrets you discover in our Behind the Seams experience will vary throughout the year as new costumes are displayed to complement the season or special feature running at the time.
