Yesterday we revealed the first-look at Platform 9 ¾ and The Hogwarts Express – the latest attraction to hit the fabulous Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

We were lucky enough to visit the London studio ourselves yesterday to chat with the man who plays Arthur Weasley in the Harry Potter movies – Mark Williams and special effects guru John Richardson who worked on all eight movies as well as a plethro of James Bond films. We also got to have a wander around the platform ourselves.

Cassam Looch and I had a fabulous time checking out all the nooks and crannies to give you a sneak peek into the brand new 20,000ft2 permanant stage taking you on-board The Hogwarts Express and generally delving deep in the mystery of Harry Potter!

The train you see here is the actual train that was used in the movies – all 75 tonnes of it alongside the carriages that were used for filming so you can really experience first-hand what it was like for Harry, Hermione and Ron as they travelled to Hogwarts at the start of every term.

Our interviews with Mark and John are below alongside a package we’ve put together showing the highlights of our time on the platform. Harry Potter fans will simply love this new attraction – you can book tickets to see it now for when it opens to the public on 19th March 2015.
