Leavesden open for fans in 2012

Plans to turn Leavesden into permanent studio approved, Harry Potter visitor attraction opening in 2012

It was a few weeks ago when we reported that plans were underway to turn Leavesden Studios - the huge complex where all eight Harry Potter films have been shot - into a full on studio and keep a permanent Harry Potter area for fans who'd like to see the real sets.

The Watford Observer is reporting this evening that those plans have now been approved and finalized:

Warner Brothers, which has brought world-wide fame to the former aerodrome complex with its Harry Potter franchise, can now begin a programme of redevelopment worth an estimated 100 million pounds – creating hundreds of jobs and providing a boost to the local economy.

The company, which will now purchase the site outright and use it as its European filming base, will build new film stages, production and administration facilities.

It will also open a Harry Potter themed visitor attraction to cater for up to 5,000 visitors a day.

The article also says the Harry Potter visitor attraction will open in 2012. Read more at this link! http://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/new...plan_approved/

Will you visit Leavesden to see lots of Harry Potter sets?!

I would love to visit! I'm so excited for the WWoHP, you'd think I was 6 years old, but somehow, Leavesden still sounds to me like the real deal! I will get there someday, definitely!

Maybe our next meeting can be there? Would be great to share this experience together. But for now let's first think about the premiere

Haha! And then the meeting after that can be in Scotland somewhere, or Wales where they filmed Shell Cottage...we can make a pilgrimage to all the filming sites.

Man, I better hurry up on becoming a millionaire, though, LOL! These meetings are going to get expensive!
