Harry Potter's Hogwarts Has The Most Expensive Movie Bathrooms

Hogwarts, the wizarding school from Harry Potter, can now add “The Most Expensive Movie Bathroom” to its list of achievements. The successful movie franchise began when Warner Bros. Studio decided to bring J.K. Rowling’s pages to life in theaters. Harry Potter managed to captivate audiences worldwide and the movies went on to be nominated for 12 Academy Awards.

For many, the characters and locations in the films have become impossible to separate from the mental imagery while reading the novels. Daniel Radcliffe personified the character of Harry Potter and the magnificent castle with dark spires protruding from massive walls became Hogwarts. The Harry Potter movie's depiction of Hogwarts has given it a memorable form that Potterheads everywhere can easily identify. It is easily the most iconic location in the franchise. Even the Hogwarts replica at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios commands the most attention in that portion of the park.

The exterior of Hogwarts is definitely magical but apparently the price tag of the lavatories are as well. This is according to a recently study Victorian Plumbing (via CBR), a online bathroom retailer in the U.K., conducted to examine the construction costs of bathrooms from famous film and television sets. Their findings indicate that Hogwarts shelled out a ton of Galleons and Knuts to create their lavish commodities. Read below to see what it would cost fanatics to recreate.

"Victorian Plumbing, a major online bathroom retailer based in the United Kingdom, analyzed some of the most famous bathrooms in film and television and figured out the price to replicate them in someone's home. Unsurprisingly, the most expensive bathroom on the list is Harry Potter's Gryffindor bathroom, costing a total of £6,096.74 ($7,130.75)."

The study considered various bathroom sets spanning from The Simpsons to Pretty Woman. The findings may explain why the cost of attending Hogwarts was never revealed on screen. It is worth noting that Hogwarts may have been given the title of most expensive, but Tony Montana evidently knew how to live as well. The bathroom set in Scarface came in second on the list, just a little over a thousand British pounds away from Hogwarts.

The bathrooms played a major role in the Harry Potter movies. The locations are where the heroic trio first fend off the troll in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, where they get assistance from Moaning Myrtle in The Chamber of Secrets, and where Harry duels it out with Draco Malfoy in The Half-Blood Prince. Sadly, it appears that the average muggle or Harry Potter fanatic won't be able to recreate their Gryffindor dreams at home unless they are willing to empty the vaults of Gringotts.
