From chocolate frogs to orange-flavoured slugs to levitating pudding, participants will learn how these visual delights were created for the movies.

The visit will take guests through some of the most iconic sets in the Harry Potter universe, but the main attraction of the "show" will definitely be the reproductions of the legendary Hogwarts feasts.

Visitors will also get a chance to hang out in the Gryffindor common room.

Candies and other sugary treats are an integral part of every "Harry Potter" film: for example, candies are used as passwords sometimes, and let's not forget the infamous Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, where a vomit flavored jelly bean was as likely as an ear wax or liver flavored one.

As for the Hogwarts feast, it was the backdrop for many of the films' most key moments. In fact, Warner Bros Studio promises to serve butterbeer ice cream at the end of the visit.

For fans eager to experience the delight, purchase tickets ahead of time on www.wbstudiotour.co.uk for a specific time slot.

The Warner Bros Studios is located in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, northwest of London.
