If you’re a cunning muggle who has a penchant for dark magic, snakes, and the colors green and silver, you’re going to want to disapparate to London this spring: For the first time ever, you can visit the Slytherin common room.
In April, Warner Bros.'s Studio Tour London is celebrating all things Slytherin: A 25-foot high section of the iconic set common room will be on display, furnished with original props. You’ll be able to gather around the fireplace and sofas and practice your spells. Designed to look like a dungeon made of rock, the set features carved snakes and hand-crafted wall tapestries devoid of warm colors, so you’ll be able to truly experience Slytherin’s austere atmosphere.
Along with the common room, the rest of the tour pays homage to the notorious house. Green banners will hang from the enchanted ceiling of the Great Hall, signifying Slytherin winning the House Cup. To get the full Slytherin experience, Gryffindor banners will hang above the teacher's table, referencing the last scenes of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone when Dumbledore names Gryffindor the last-minute winner.
Original costumes that belonged to prominent Slytherin witches and wizards will be on display, namely, the Malfoy family's costumes. Showcasing his evolution from Tom Riddle to the Dark Lord, Voldemort's costumes will also be on display.
The Slytherin celebration will run from April to September 2020. Before heading to Platform nine and three-quarters, get tickets to the tour here.
