There, at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, England, this extraordinary model of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is due to go on display for the first time, along with many other sets from the series of hit films.
The model was built for the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (renamed Sorcerer's Stone in the U.S.) and has been used for exterior shots in every film since. When all the time spent by 86 artists and crew members is added up, it took an incredible 74 years to build.
