You’re Gonna Want to Spend Your Valentine’s Day at Hogwarts Castle
It may have been six years since we got a new Harry Potter movie and 10 years since we got a new book about the original trio, but the craze is still very much alive (all the hype surrounding Fantastic Beasts likely doesn’t hurt, either). Clothing collections with the theme still sell like hotcakes, and Potterheads everywhere lost their minds when themed vacations and tours started popping up. In recent years, fans have been able to visit Hogwarts for the holidays, and it looks like the castle is opening its doors once again.
The Warner Bros Studio London is giving Potter fanatics the chance to visit the hallowed halls for Valentine’s Day in 2018. On February 9 and February 10, you can dine with your loved one in the Great Hall. When you walk in, you’ll be greeted with drinks — including an exclusive Love Potion cocktail — and canapés, and you’ll find your chosen wand waiting for you when you sit down.
After the three-course dinner (where you’ll get a photo with your companion), you’ll be treated to an after-hours Studio Tour, where you’ll get to visit sets like the kitchen at the Burrow, Dumbledore’s office, the Gryffindor common room, and the Forbidden Forest. You’ll get to partake in Butterbeer, hang out on Platform 9 3/4, see the original Hogwarts Express, and even see actual costumes from the film. You’ll get to wander down Diagon Alley and see the Hogwarts castle model.
Tickets are on sale starting today, December 19 and will run you £495 (about $662) per table. If there’s a Potter nut you love, this would definitely make the perfect gift.
