Warner Bros. Studio Tour London presents electric shuttles and vegan offers

The Wizarding World franchise continues to make progress in promoting sustainability throughout its operations. Building Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo – The Making of Harry Potter, scheduled to open in 2023, has protected the area’s existing green space by planting new trees to replace those that have had to be removed due to age or building. Earlier this year, Universal Studios Hollywood, home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, recently unveiled four Studio Tour electric trams.

Now Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter has announced the replacement of the petrol-powered shuttle service with zero-emission electric buses on the route between the Studio Tour in Leavesden and Watford Junction station. Like the previous gas-powered shuttle service, the new electric bus service is free for all customers with a valid Studio Tour ticket for the day of travel. Unlike petrol service, electric buses will prevent more than 264 tonnes (291.01 tonnes) of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year. Geoff Spooner, SVP and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, expressed enthusiasm for the change.

We are delighted to have switched to fully electric shuttles for our visitors and staff at Studio Tour as part of our commitment to sustainability.

In addition to the electric buses, the Studio Tour recently announced new herbal offerings for afternoon tea. Sandwich options on the vegan menu include cucumber on a malty Bloomer, vegan smoked salmon with vegan lemon butter on a malty Bloomer, and vegan cheese and tomato on a white Bloomer. Other options include a herb-crusted vegan sausage roll, a chocolate frog brownie, and a gingerbread witch hat.

Vegan Afternoon Tea and Traditional Afternoon Tea are both available as supplements to Studio Tour tickets. Tables for two are available for 90 minute time slots for £60.00 each. Champagne Afternoon Tea for two, which includes a glass of Palmer & Co Brut Reserve, is available with the Vegan and Traditional menu for guests over 18 for £90.00.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood recently expanded their offerings for vegan visitors, unveiling new vegan-labeled menu offerings earlier this year. Jackfruit and mushroom pie platters are available at Orlando and Hollywood theme parks, while vegan Irish stews and shepherd’s pies are only available in Orlando.

Expanded menus and electric buses aren’t the only new features of the Studio Tour. Warner Bros. also recently announced the reopening and expansion of number four, Privet Drive, during the Studio Tour. The set has been further opened up to view in the living room, which includes a flurry of Hogwarts letters, inspired by the scene in Harry Potter at the Sorcerer’s Stone. Along with the living room expansion, fans can now see the kitchen and dining area. This area is decorated with a messy set, showcasing the infamous incident of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in which Harry accidentally inflates his Aunt Marge in a fit of anger. In response to a fan comment on Instagram, Warner Bros. confirmed that new number four, Privet Drive, will be a permanent set.

These exciting expansions and updates represent an important step in promoting sustainability across the Wizarding World franchise. What changes would you like to see next?
