Warner Bros. Studio Tour has just announced its biggest expansion to date with the opening of Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

As of April 6th, the Harry Potter tour will now allow visitors to experience the original Gringotts set from the movies. You'll be able to walk through the marble pillared entrance hall, just as Harry did. Expect to see the Goblin tellers who run the bank with their desks from the movies meticulously recreated down to the feather quills and piles of wizarding coins.

Don't forget to look up and see the three elaborate crystal chandeliers that decorate the bank's main hallway.

Of course a trip to Gringotts also means a visit to one of their ultra secure vaults. Visitors will follow in Harry, Hermione and Ron's footsteps by entering the vault of Bellatrix Lestrange. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 we saw the safe was full of treasure including the sword of Gryffindor and the horcrux of Helga Hufflepuff's cup.

A visit to the vault will also give you the opportunity to have a unique photo surrounded by all the gold and artefacts that filled the safe.

The expansion is a massive 16,500sqft and the biggest the tour the Warner Bros. Studios has had since its opening in 2012. It'll house not just the thousands of props created to bring the bank to life but also the costumes and prosthetics used to turn Warwick Davis into Griphook.

The set has been rebuilt thanks to the help of the original film makers including OscarĀ® and BAFTA winning Production Designer Stuart Craig, Construction Manager Paul Hayes and Head Propmaker Pierre Bohanna.

Entrance to the new expansion is included as part of admission. You can step inside Gringotts as of 6th April.
