Day 1

You will be picked up from your local pick-up point, and taken to London, arriving in the early afternoon. The Bus will leave at precisely the time indicated on your ticket, so please do not be late.

You will have time to explore the city before re-joining the coach and continuing on to your Hotel, where an evening meal will be provided; make sure you eat the pea soup before it eats you.

Day 2

You will have a full day at the Studio Tour, so you may take your time and discover all there is to see; explore the secrets of Professor Dumbledore’s Office, walk through Hogwarts’ Great Hall, climb aboard the Hogwarts Express, learn how to duel a Death Eater and have your photo taken on a Nimbus 2000. Wander through the Art and Creature Departments and see how the magic was brought to life!

It should be noted that special dispensation has been given, which allows you to visit the Forbidden Forest; please try not to disturb the Centaurs or the Acromantulas.

Butterbeer will be available for you to try, along with a selection of delicious hot and cold food from the food hall.

Hogwarts In The Snow

8th December 2018

On display in the centre of the Great Hall will sit one of the beautiful Yule Ball sculptures. Inspired by the Brighton Pavilion, the sculptures were cast from resin and surrounded by mounds of imitation ice on which sat an array of refreshments for guests.

In addition to the Yule Ball decoration, The Great Hall will be lined with Christmas trees and the long dining tables will be dressed as they were for seasonal feasts at Hogwarts with prop versions of roast turkeys, hams studded with cherries and even Christmas puddings surrounded by real flames.

As part of the Hogwarts in the Snow feature, many of the iconic sets housed at the Studio Tour will receive a festive makeover. The Gryffindor Common Room and Boys’ Dormitory will be decorated with the original props including handmade Christmas cards, some of which were created by the cast members during production. Fireplaces throughout the Studio Tour (including those in the Leaky Cauldron and Great Hall) will be ‘lit’ with special effects fire, created by John Richardson and the SFX team using a combination of water vapour and lighting effects.

The Hogwarts castle model will be transformed with a layer of filmmaking snow. During filming, a member of the crew climbed aboard an elevated work platform and sprinkled the ‘snow’ mixture of granulated paper and grains of salt onto the model by hand with a sieve – like dusting sugar onto a cake. The same process will be used at the Studio Tour this November. You will even be able to touch samples of the different types of ‘snow’ used during production, each selected for its ability to float like falling snow, crunch under foot or glisten in the light like ice.
