Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour - London attraction will open Gringotts wizarding bank in April
We all know that the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter attraction is one of the best days out in the UK - and it's about to get better, thanks to a Gringotts Bank surprise.
The tour already has all the costumes that the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson wore in the film, incredible props which really showcase the work of the talented set designers who worked on the eight films and even the actual Great Hall and Forbidden Forest.
Well, it's outdone itself and become even more exciting. The studio has announced it is set to open its largest ever expansion - the original 16,500 square foot set of Gringotts Wizarding Bank. With just weeks to go until its launch (it opens April 6), Warner Bros has given fans a first glimpse inside the amazing new feature.

The marble pillar-lined banking hall of Gringotts complete with decadent chandeliers - the biggest on containing 30,000 crystals - the Lestrange vault - where Hermione (disguised as Bellatrix Lestrange), Harry and Ron successfully broke into in the final film - and the gallery of goblins will be open to the public from Saturday 6 April and tickets are on sale now.

While visiting, you can expect to see the goblin's desks complete with props (over 210,000 coins were created for the two Deathly Hallows films alone) and the wonders of the Lestrange vault including one of the horcruxes: Helga Hufflepuff's Cup. The costume and prosthetics of the goblins will also be on show so you can see all that went into Warwick Davis' transformation into Griphook.

What's better news is that entrance to Gringotts will be included in ticket price so you can explore the Gryffindor common room, take a walk down Diagon Alley and climb aboard the Hogwarts Express all in the same trip.
Honestly, name me a better day out?
