Warner Bros has offered Harry Potter fans a glimpse of its newest recreation of the wizarding world, Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

The new permanent attraction to the Warner Bros Studio Tour London, which includes the banking hall and the Lestrange vault, will officially open to visitors in April and from the pictures, it seems the attraction will be worth another visit.

In addition to the pillar-lined main banking hall where three crystal chandeliers are hung, the goblin-protected bank will offer visitors the opportunity to explore Bellatrix Lestrange’s vault, which can be seen full of galleons, sickles, and knuts.

Hidden inside the Lestrange vault are the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup, one of Voldemort’s horcruxes.

The 16,500-sq-foot attraction will also feature the costumes and prosthetics used for the goblin bankers, each of which took weeks to make.

Ahead of the opening, Warwick Davis, the actor who played Griphook, and James and Oliver Phelps, who played the Weasley twins, visited Gringotts.
