Every great story has a new beginning, and yours starts here.

Welcome to Warner Bros. Discovery… the stuff dreams are made of.

Who We Are…

When we say, “the stuff dreams are made of,” we’re not just referring to the world of wizards, dragons and superheroes, or even to the wonders of Planet Earth. Behind WBD’s vast portfolio of iconic content and beloved brands, are the storytellers bringing our characters to life, the creators bringing them to your living rooms and the dreamers creating what’s next…

From brilliant creatives, to technology trailblazers, across the globe, WBD offers career defining opportunities, thoughtfully curated benefits, and the tools to explore and grow into your best selves. Here you are supported, here you are celebrated, here you can thrive.

Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden (WBSL) is a purpose built, state-of-the-art film and television studio offering one of the largest facilities in the UK.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London based at WBSL – The Making of Harry Potter is the only place in the world to showcase the authentic sets, props and behind-the-scenes secrets of the Harry Potter films at the location where they were made. It has attracted over 14 million visitors since opening in 2012 and has received over 40,000 reviews on TripAdvisor with 96% rating the experience as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’. Since launching, additions to the Tour include Platform 9 ¾ featuring the original Hogwarts Express, the Forbidden Forest and Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

In December 2018 WBSL acquired the Platform 9 ¾ group which has sites at the iconic location in King’s Cross Station and Heathrow airport.

The Tour & Retail group has continued to expand over the last couple of years launching our first flagship store in New York over the Summer of 2021, alongside expanding our ecommerce operations in the UK and US. The summer of 2023 saw us open a replication of our world-famous Tour in Japan, which, has been a phenomenal success.

Studio Tours in London and Tokyo, the Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 ¾, the Harry Potter flagship shop in New York, plus any new launches. The team is responsible for all areas of communication including publicity, media relations, crisis management, internal comms, CSR and copywriting.
