A special festive feature is planned at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter this year when the Hogwarts castle model is covered in a blanket of snow.
The 'Hogwarts in the Snow' offers visitors the chance to see the castle as it has never been seen before, with its iconic festive look recreated for the first time.
Some of the intricately-detailed sets showcased at the attraction will be given a festive makeover using the actual decorations and food props seen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Eight Christmas trees will line the Great Hall, along with festoons of holly, mistletoe and golden wreaths. Two long dining tables will be dressed as they were for seasonal feasts with prop versions of turkeys, hams, fruit, vegetables, plum puddings and snow cakes. The food featured in the feasts throughout the early films was real; however, the Set Decoration Department later used artificial food created from powder and resin.
Tickets are available at www.wbstudiotour.co.uk and must be pre-booked in advance by selecting tour times throughout the day.
Prices lead in at £29 for adults, £21.50 for children and £85 for a family of four.
The attraction is located just north of London at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden with fast train links from Euston and shuttle buses for ticket holders to and from Watford Junction.
Hogwarts in the Snow runs from November 15 to January 6 and all extra activities are included in the ticket price.
