See Hogwarts in the Snow

If you’re yearning for some winter snow scenes, take yourself and the Harry Potter fans in your life to the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studios Tour to see Hogwarts in the snow.

The London attraction has been given a festive twist until the end of January with enough snow, Christmas trees and decorations to satisfy even the biggest winter junkie.

The huge model of Hogwarts Castle used in the films has been covered in a magical blanket of snow. If you don’t manage to get there before the snow melts, you could recreate your own model with a Hogwarts Castle Lego set and some cotton wool or icing sugar!

The set of the Great Hall has been filled with eight Christmas trees and decorations used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, ready for a festive feast. You could almost imagine you were sitting at one of the long dining tables for breakfast with your own Harry Potter mug.

The fires will be blazing in the Great Hall and the Gryffindor common room. The Special Effects Department from the film series have used special coloured lights and a magical vapour to create a flickering fire effect. If that doesn’t warm you up, a Gryffindor scarf should keep you snug.

Harry and Ron’s hand-knitted Christmas jumpers from Molly Weasley will be on display alongside one of Harry’s first Christmas presents at Hogwarts, the Invisibility Cloak. If you’re not lucky enough to have your own Invisibility Cloak, you could always pretend with a “My Invisibility Cloak Isn’t Working” hoodie!
