Been to Florida's Wizarding World of Harry Potter and still can't get enough? Don't panic, there's more in store for Harry Potter fans as the English studios where the franchise is filmed has announced it's set to open its doors for tours in 2012.

The Warner Bros studios in Leavesden have been home to Harry, Hermione Ron and the gang for the last 10 years, and it's 150,000 sq-ft of Harry Potter nostalgia.

Not only can you go through Hogwart's Great Hall, Dumbledore's office, the Gryffindor common room and Hagrid's hut, but you can also take a peek inside the Creative Effects workshop and check out the film's animatronics, including Buckbeak the Hippogriff, Aragog the giant spider, Fawkes the phoenix, and the Basilisk head.

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron, told the Daily Mail: 'The sets all have tiny little details that you may not always notice in the films but when you actually walk through them, you can see all the work that's gone into it. It's really amazing,'

Tickets will go on sale on 13 October at £28 per adult and £21 for children. Tours begin in spring 2012.

The studios are situated about three miles from Watford Town Centre, and can be accessed by a direct 20-minute train from London Euston. Visit wbstudiotour.co.uk.
