The Warner Bros Studio Tour was forced to close due to the coronavirus pandemic - but they've announced plans to repen later this month.

If you've gone yet another year without receiving your Hogwarts acceptance letter, we have good news - the Warner Bros Studio Tour is reopening its doors.

The London-based attraction was forced to close back in March because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but it will start welcoming back customers from 20 August.

And if you fancy yourself as more of a Voldemort than a Harry Potter, you'll be delighted to know it has a number of new Slytherin-themed attractions - including the dungeon common room and 'A Celebration of Slytherin' attraction.
