Christmas at Hogwarts | Hogwarts in the Snow

christmas at hogwarts in the snow
This was my second visit to the Warner Bros Studio tour, I first went last year at a non-Christmas time so when Bank Fashion offered me some tickets to go again I thought it would be amazing to go when they have their Hogwarts in the Snow celebrations. They also added a little section of Malfoy Manor that wasn't there the last time I went so I was super duper excited. I've mostly just put in some photos of things that they add for Christmas time so if you've not been before there is a lot more than this to see! Prepare yourself for a lot of photos of the Christmas feast:

I know most people say that Hogwarts is their favourite part of the tour but I think mine is the potions classroom, the lighting is really nice and the details on all the ingredients bottles with all the colours and labels I just find it amazing!

A really cool addition to the Hogwarts in the Snow tours is the table where they have all the kinds of snow that they used in the films, there were four different types which were used for different things and it was great fun playing with them. Here's a photo of me doing so (by Marie).


If this isn't enough Harry Potter for you then make sure you check out my posts on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and the fantasy Harry Potter festival that I made up (yes that is what I do in my spare time).

Have you been to the studio tour? What's your favourite part of it?

Christmas markets are wonderful and wandering around cities at this time of year with all the lights on is one of my favourite things. I went to London last week to do some shopping (and visit the Harry Potter studios, post on that next week!) and it was so lovely to see all the festive displays and extravagant lights, I hadn't been to London at Christmas time since I was around 10 or 11 so this trip was a bit different to then! Hope you like these snaps I took to show some of the parts of London that I saw.

What are your favourite things about Christmas time?
