Slytherin Potterheads can now tour their common room! The Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London announced on Tuesday that it will be holding a special event just for proud Slytherins.
Called appropriately enough, “A Celebration of Slytherin,” the studio tour will have a 25-foot-high common room on display to the public beginning April 3, 2020 and running through September 6, 2020. The tour will begin in the Great Hall which will be decked out with Slytherin colors (green and silver) and banners. The common room will be up to proud Slytherin standards with each will be properly furnished and feature the props and costumes of every great Slytherin from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
According to tyla.com:
The room will also be decorated with original costumes from the Malfoy family, showing how their outfits changed and evolved along with their rise and fall from power.
Voldemort’s original costumes will also be on display, showing his evolution from orphan Tom Riddle, to Hogwarts student and finally, the one-who-must-not-be-named.
House Slytherin was founded at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by Salazar Slytherin and has been the house has been home to powerful witches and wizards like Severus Snape, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lucious Malfoy and the rest of his clan, and-of course-Voldemort. While the house has the most links to dark magic, Slytherins are a proud house that strives towards excellence and achievement and constantly find themselves battling the equally proud Gryffindor for quidditch dominance and the house cup.
While J.K. Rowling does provide great descriptions of the Slytherin Common Room in her books, we, unfortunately, don’t get to see much of it in the Harry Potter film series. Hopefully, this will give die-hard Slytherins and all other Harry Potter fans alike a chance to appreciate the setting more.
