Behind-the-scenes photos from the Harry Potter films are to go on display in a new exhibition.

The Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition will open to the public next month in Covent Garden, central London.

Visitors will also be able to drink at a Butterbeer bar, which is inspired by the fictional drink from the series of books.

The exhibition will include hundreds of exclusive images from the series of Harry Potter films and its Fantastic Beasts spin-off.

The pictures will show moments including Harry's first journey to school and the Battle of Hogwarts.

There will also be sections of the exhibition dedicated to Platform Nine and 3/4 and the Ministry of Magic.

Visitors will also see how characters were made to look as if they were flying on broomsticks in the films.

They will also be able to pose for photographs in front of backdrops from the films and have their own Ministry of Magic Identification Card made. The opens on July 12. – dpa
