Attention, everyone. Please cancel those Valentines Day reservations you made at that boring Italian restaurant you’ve been to a million times. We have another option and it’s literally magical. Potterheads, brace yourselves. Warner Brother Studios in London is opening up the doors of Hogwarts Great Hall for a special Valentines Day dinner. The studio broke the news today with this post on Instagram.
According to the studio’s website, here’s what the evening will entail: When you arrive you’ll enjoy romantic drinks (including a special love potion cocktail) and canapés in the reception area. You’ll then walk a red carpet and eventually take a seat with your loved one in the festively decorated Great Hall. There you’ll enjoy a three-course meal on the original set.
After that, you’ll then be given exclusive after-hours access to the Studio Tour with the chance to see sets such as the Gryffindor common room, Dumbledore’s office, the Weasley kitchen at The Burrow and the Malfoy Manor dining table, before enjoying a drink on Platform 9 3/4.
Once you’ve finished slurping down some Butterbeer in the backlot cafe, you can check out the wizarding shopping street of Diagon Alley, before arriving at the Hogwarts castle model for some after-dinner tea, coffee and chocolates. As the evening wraps up you’ll return to the lobby where you’ll to collect your chosen wand.
Now for the potentially bad news. We hope you have a generous amount of Galleons stashed away in Gringotts because this evening is going to cost you. Tickets are currently priced at £248 ($358) each and available to purchase in pairs for £495 ($714). If you’re going to splurge you’d better decide soon because booking opens tomorrow January 13 and we’re guessing tickets are going to disappear faster than you can say “Evanesco.”
