at Leicester Square, .

Looking for a spellbinding experience?


Get ready to go utterly bonkers for our Harry Potter statue, soon to be unveiled as part of the Scenes in the Square film trail in Leicester Square, London’s home of film.

Showing Harry taking flight on his Nimbus 2000 broom as he prepares to play Quidditch on the Hogwarts pitch for the very first time, the statue marks one of the most memorable scenes from the Warner Bros. film, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.”

Joining eight other film icons celebrating a century of cinema, Harry will be placed in the heart of the square close to where “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” had its world film premiere back in November 2001.
