For the first time ever, visitors will be able to step inside the Dursley home.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London has announced that for a limited time, and as part of their celebrations for the 15th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in theaters, they are allowing guests to enter number four, Private Drive. The exterior of the house has always been a part of the studio’s backlot, where visitors could take pictures alongside the iconic street sign but now, from Friday, May 27th to Monday, June 6th, fans will have the opportunity “to walk through the front door and look into the Dursleys’ front room where hundreds of Harry’s Hogwarts letters will be suspended in the air as though they’ve flown through the fireplace as they did in the iconic scene” from the first Harry Potter film.

Apart from being able to see up close “the ugliest sofas, worst tiles and most unattractive curtains possible” that decorate the place, fans will find on display the Dursleys’ costumes created by Costume Designer Judianna Makovsky, as well as the equipment that was used to shoot Harry’s Hogwarts letters through the letterbox of number four, Privet Drive.

This is one of several special Philosopher’s Stone events being planned throughout the year at the Studio Tour that has just turned 4 years old. The attraction is build at Leveasden Studios, the same facility in the outskirts of London that hosted the production of all 8 Harry Potter films for over a decade. Many of the original filming sets are on display, and highlights include walking through the Great Hall, seeing the treasures stored in Dumbledore’s office and strolling down Diagon Alley.

Tickets must be pre-booked at www.wbstudiotour.co.uk.
