    Almost all of us have visited Hogwarts (AKA. Warner Bros. Studios), most of us could recite at least two spells off by heart and some of us even own some merch.

    So, when we heard a rumour that Hedwig the owl was making a flying visit to our London offices, we could barely contain our excitement.

     Our family assistant Gemma came over all shy in Hedwig’s presence.


    But what on earth was it all about I hear you cry? Well, this April, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, is bringing some feathered friends along to join its already exciting day out.

    From Friday 4th April, at the home of Hogwarts and Diagon Alley, you and your family will get the chance to meet the talented owls who played Harry’s Hedwig and Ron’s Pidwigeon along with some other A-list avians who featured in the films.

    You’ll get to hear from the birds’ trainers, revealing the secrets behind how they got them to ‘act’ and there’s even a chance for you and the kids to pose for a photo with the owls! #Hedwigselfie anyone?

    Visitors will also be shown the technical wizardry behind animating winged wonders such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Fawkes the Phoenix.

    All this and you still get to stop off at the Butterbeer shack for a little light refreshment before you head home!

    Feathers and Flight is a special feature at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London for three weeks from Friday 4th to Sunday 27th April 2014. Tickets must be booked in advance from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour website.
