The Harry Potter Studio Tour gets a frosty and festive makeover

The Harry Potter studio tours get a festive makeover once more for Christmas. See the Great Hall dressed for the Yule Ball with dripping icicles, snow-covered Christmas trees, an orchestra playing on silver instruments and turkeys and burning Christmas puddings laid out on the table. The Gryffindor Common Room will be dressed with original props including handmade Christmas cards created by the cast members during production. The Weasley burrow and the Leakey Cauldron will also be getting the Christmas treatment and the Hogwarts castle model will be covered in a layer of glistening snow made by the prop team. Remember to wrap up warm. Personalised knitted jumpers optional. 

Hogwarts in the Snow is included in the standard ticket price.

Such an incredible experience! When the studio is transformed for winter and hog warts is covered in snow, it is truly magical. If you haven't been it's a must for all potter fans and enjoyable for anyone of any age who has seen the movies! Hands on activities for the kids (in all of us). Ride a broomstick to catch the snitch in Quidditch or sample a butter beer.

This was a dream come true and best Christmas present ever!

It was absolutely stunning, overwhelming and amazing to see how the Harry Potter magic was created for the movies.

It's an absolute work of art in every detail, every cm, everything...

It's worth every penny and not only for Harry Potter fans because I believe that the studios enable any film addict to understand and admire the effort that is put in many of our favorite movies.



Amazing experience. It's unbelievable the job and the passion that is behind these movies. The only bad thing was an error that the system on line did booking us at 8am even if we had the entrance at 2pm, when our bus was only at 12 so we had to wait 4hours.


Harry potter world is amazing from the moment you arrive. No detail is left unplanned. Can't wait to return xx


I visited the Warner Bros. Studio Tour twice in the space of two months, once for the non-festive version in early November, and once for the festive version two days ago. It was interesting to compare the two. I admit that I was expecting a little more festive magic out of the Christmas tour with the way it had been hyped up via posters and online, but reading some reviews of the experience, I realise that I missed some of the seasonal additions like Harry's invisibility cloak, which is a great shame. The snow-blanketed Hogwarts model was spectacular, and I enjoyed the snow-covered Diagon Alley as well, although I was disappointed at the removal of my favourite aspect from last time, the Death Eaters who patrolled in front of the shops and would pretend to duel with you if you pointed a wand at them. The problem was that my friend and I could only obtain tickets for a late slot, starting at 6pm, and so we had to make our way through the exhibits quite efficiently to avoid missing the last bus home. If you're thinking about booking tickets for this (if they're not already sold out by now), definitely aim for an earlier slot so that you can explore every aspect to your heart's content. The other dampener on our visit was the fact that it was pouring with rain, so we couldn't really get close to the outdoor exhibits. A few degrees colder and we would have had an utterly magical snowfall to complete the experience - typical England...


I have read all the Harry Potter Books and seen all films several times over I have visited anwick castle and after ready this article would love to visit 5 star rating
