1. Festive Features on Your Studio Tour
Hogwarts is truly enchanting, no matter the season, but there is something even more spellbinding about this mystical school as it wears a coat of snow and twinkles under the shimmering lights of the festive season. Every year, Hogwarts in the Snow returns to the wizarding world and welcome us mere muggles inside to explore. Your tour begins as you enter through the wreath-decorated grand doors of the Great Hall. Your expert guide will get you in the festive spirit as they take you to explore the magical hall where Harry, Ron and Hermione share their meals – and their plans for adventure. Lined with enormous Christmas trees, decorated with ornate, golden baubles and crowned with a witch flying a broomstick, the Great Hall at Christmas time invites you to step straight into the scene of Hogwarts’s seasonal Yule Ball.
The hall’s iconic mahogany dining tables are set for the annual festive feast, complete with puddings with real flames and Christmas crackers branded with the house crest from each of the hall’s tables. Icicles hang for the Hall’s ‘open-air’ ceiling and an orchestra of magical instruments will add to the studio’s festive effects.
As you move from room to room, you’ll be dazzled with the creativity and precision of the studio’s set designers. In the company of an expert guide, you’ll discover how the film makers of the Harry Potter series created snow that can never melt away or flames without fire.
Along with the Great Hall, the Gryffindor common room is one of the most spectacular sets you’ll uncover on your Harry Potter studio tour. Twinkling under the fairy lights of the room’s massive Christmas tree and heated by its iconic open fire, the Gryffindor common room looks like the perfect place to nestle down for the holiday season. Kitted out with all the Christmas essentials, the common room promises to spark some magic on your Harry Potter tour.
The Weasley’s kitchen will also be dressed in decorations, Christmas crackers and some of Molly’s home-cooked delights.
Along the way you’ll be treated to real-life props that were used in the movies themselves. From school uniforms to the infamous Sorting Hat, live like a wizard for the day on this enchanting experience.
