Harry Potter Attraction to Open at Leavesden Studios in the U.K.

Warner Bros. has purchased Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, England (the TRUE home of Harry Potter) -- the place where all the Harry Potter films were produced -- and will be opening a Harry Potter attraction there in 2012.

Details are limited on the wizard-themed destination, but it's going to be huge. According to the Watford Observer, the site will offer tours of the old Harry Potter film sets after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows wraps later this year. It will be big enough to accommodate up to 5,000 visitors per day, so we know Warner Bros. has big plans.

Leavesden Studios used to be a place were aircrafts were built during World War II. Now it's one of the only places in the U.K. where large scale productions can be made. Warner Bros. will spend over $153 million to redevelop site, making it their European headquarters and creating hundreds of jobs
