As Leaky reported previously, The Making of Harry Potter WB Studio Tour in Leavesden is holding a number of special exhibits in honor of the 15th Anniversary of the first Harry Potter film. Welcome to Hogwarts kicked off the anniversary celebrations this last Thursday, February 11, and will continue until Monday, February 22.

Welcome to Hogwarts gives visitors a chance to view iconic props that first appeared in  Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone that have never before been available for viewing. The props will be set up in the Great Hall, one of the first Harry Potter sets built 15 years ago. These props include the Sorting Hat sitting upon it’s stool, floating candles above the teachers’ table, and “secrets behind some of the first film’s most recognisable scenes will be revealed.”

Pottermore spent the morning at Leavesden Studios, touring the Welcome to Hogwarts displays. They live tweeted their tour. Here are the highlights:
