If you’re in London, then one place to definitely visit as a Harry Potter fan would be the Warner Bros. Studio and experience the Harry Potter world first hand. Like all the stuff you see in the movie is real (except the wands, and the duels, and the magic and Harry and… okay, I’ll stop).
But one place that fans had always wanted to visit and was totally, and absolutely real was the childhood home of Harry Potter as mentioned in the books – No. 4, Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey.
And now that’s about to get real. As homage to the 15th year anniversary to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone, graphic designers MinaLima set up the house and brought it back to life for fans and tourists to visit.
*Literally dying of excitement*
And that’s not all. The house has not just been revamped to look like the Dursley house but it actually has the letters that Harry received asking him to join Hogwarts. ALL OF THEM!
Each and every detail has been paid attention to and there are actual trophies, TV remotes, photo frames, and even Dudley’s ridiculous awards including swimming for 5 meters and eating all of his lunch.
Although the ‘cupboard under the stairs’ is missing, there is a small door there that allows you to let your imagination run wild and free.
You may also get to see the special effects that were used to send the letters from Hogwarts flying across in the room and has been recreated by Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson.
And the best part? Once you’re done with the tour and exit the house, you can find some peace as you eat your butterbeer ice cream.
The set will be open to public from the 27th of May for a limited time. You can book your tickets here.
