This Harry Potter Valentine's Day Dinner At Hogwarts Castle Promises To Be Unbelievably Magical
if you've ever dreamt of having a romantic dinner under the floating candle-lit ceiling of the Hogwarts Great Hall, your dream is most definitely about to come true. Because The Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London is offering a chance to have Valentine's Day dinner at the iconic Great Hall—if you've got a date and some serious Galleons to spare. For £495 (approximately $663) couples can sign up for dinner slots on Friday, Feb. 9 or Saturday, Feb. 10, and attend an evening of magic and romance that they'll never forget.
According to the WB Studio Tour website, guests will enter the Great Hall and be greeted with a special Love Potion cocktail before being seated at a table for two (where their chosen wand will be waiting, because obviously you can't hang out at Hogwarts without a wand.) A three-course meal will follow, complete with a starter, main course and assiette of desserts to share, along with a complimentary photo to document it all. And here's where things start to get really fun for HP-obsessed fans.
After dinner, guests will be given exclusive after-hours access to the Studio Tour with the chance to see other iconic sets including the Gryffindor common room, Dumbledore's office, the Weasley kitchen at The Burrow and even the Forbidden Forest. Afterward, these lucky attendees will get to enjoy a drink on Platform 9¾—just don't think about how much Mrs. Weasley would disapprove of imbibing near train tracks.
Following a tankard of Butterbeer in the backlot café, couples will be able to wander through Diagon Alley (where they will undoubtedly drop a fair few more Knuts on bags filled with must-have merch) before arriving at the breath-taking Hogwarts castle model—with tea, coffee and petit fours on handwhile they enjoy the view, naturally.
It's a super luxurious date night to be sure, but for Harry Potter lovers the world over, nothing could be more romantic than sharing a night in the wizarding world together, right? If you've been saving up your pennies for just such an occasion, and you'll be in or around the London area come February, you can book tickets for this insanely magical night on the WB Studio Tour website. And for those of you who do get to experience dinner at Hogwarts...the rest of us would appreciate the recipe to that Felix Felicis potion you've been brewing up because it's obviously working wonders for you.
