Grab your wand, fire up the patronus and pack the owls, because we have exciting Harry Potter travel news to report.
Now while it still may be inadvisable to enter, The Forbidden Forests are no longer off limits in London. Still, we would tread cautiously.
Warner Bros. Studio Tour London recently announced that it would welcome its visitors into the dark recesses of the famed forest. Visitors will finally get a look at the full permanent installation on March 31. However, the studio was nice enough to offer a glimpse of what to expect through social media.

Other than 19 looming trees, visitors will also run into life-sized re-creations of Buckbeak and Aragog, the Acromantula.
But this isn’t the only news in the wizarding world.
Mashable reports a Harry Potter-themed pop-up will take over a watering hole in Melbourne, Australia. Locals might know Good Things as your normal muggle bar, but this weekend—and this weekend only—it will be The Firewhisky Inn.
Firewhisky and various polyjuice potions have been promised this Friday, February 17. So if you have a handy broomstick you can visit this celebration on Friday and make it out to London in time for the grand unveiling in March.
