Those of us hoping the wizards and witches of Leavesden would make the coronavirus disappear will be disappointed by the news that The Making of Harry Potter tour will be closed from tomorrow (Monday, March 16).
Warner Bros. Studio Tour London in Leavesden have announced that The Making of Harry Potter tour will close its doors to the public from tomorrow as coronavirus fears rage on.
While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 on their premises, the decision has been made “out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of the health and well-being of our visitors, employees and community partners.”
In a statement, Warner Bros. said: “We will continue to monitor the situation closely, please refer to our website for further updates on a date when we will reopen.
“For any tickets between March 17 – April 3, a full refund will be provided. A member of our Visitor Services Team will contact you within 72 hours of your intended visit date to arrange a refund. Alternatively, they will be happy to rebook your tickets for another date subject to availability. Please have your payment details to hand and be aware that our team will call from a withheld number.
“If your booking was made using a gift ticket, these will be re-validated for 12 months from your visit date. You will receive an email to confirm this and our team will not call you.
“If you have purchased tickets or transportation packages via a third-party company, please contact them directly. Please note, refunds will not be given for any travel, accommodation or additional expenses.
“From 4pm on Monday, March 16 2020, our phone lines will be closed while we work to help those with existing bookings. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.”
