"It was such a magical place to grow up," says Daniel Radcliffe. "People will be amazed to see the incredible environment we've worked in all these years."
Rupert Grint adds, "The sets all have tiny little details that you may not always notice in the films but when you actually walk through them, you can see all the work that's gone into it. It’s really amazing."
Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the spectacular real life animatronics in a Creature Effects workshop, which will feature iconic Harry Potter film creatures including Buckbeak the Hippogriff, Aragog, the giant spider, Fawkes the phoenix and the enormous Basilisk head.
Tickets will be available from 13th October 2011. £28 for adults and £21 for children, and must be booked in advance via a dedicated website www.wbstudiotour.co.uk or through approved tour operators.
