The bank forms part of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, which is already home to Hogwarts' Great Hall, the Forbidden Forest, Diagon Alley and Platform 9 ¾, and will give fans of the wizarding franchise a chance to feel fully submerged in the Potterverse.

The stunning bank is lined with pillars made of marble and features three beautiful chandeliers - the attention to detail is spot-on, with inkwells, quills and stacks of Sickles and Knuts on top of goblin tellers' desks.

And if it's authenticity you want, then you'll be pleased to know that the new bank was built by many of the original crew from the films, including Stuart Craig, who won a BAFTA and an Academy Award for his production design skills as well as the movie's head propmaker Pierre Bohanna.

As well as being able to check out the main hall, visitors will also be able to 'enter the depths of the Lestrange Vault used to store the treasures of Bellatrix Lestrange including the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff's Cup, one of Voldemort's many Horcruxes'.

The new set measures a whopping 16,500 square-feet, making it the biggest expansion to be made at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London ever.

Actor Warwick Davis, who played Griphook the Goblin in the movies, was on-hand to unveil the new attraction; although he looked quite different than he did in the films, due to not spending four hours getting prosthetics fitted. He was joined James and Oliver Phelps, who played Ron's twin brothers Fred and George.

He said: "I spent a lot of time here as Griphook and it's great to see the Studio Tour bring the original set back to life.

"I know visitors will love discovering the details of the goblin prosthetics and the Lestrange vault for themselves and there are more exciting additions to be revealed."

The attraction officially opens to the public on 6 April. If you fancy a visit, you can pick up tickets online - with adult tickets costing £43 for the tour, which lasts about three and a half hours.
