Breakfast at Hogwarts

Enjoy a magical Sunday morning this summer with 'Breakfast at Hogwarts'.

Start your day with an exclusive breakfast reception in the iconic Great Hall. Lined with Cheeri-Owls and Pixie Puffs, the Great Hall trestle tables will be specially dressed for breakfast as they were in the magical film series.

After enjoying a selection of breakfast canapes, fresh pastries, fruit smoothies and bucks fizz, you will be joined in the Great Hall by staff members dressed in full Hogwarts uniforms for a complimentary photograph at the breakfast table.

You'll also have the chance to meet the award-winning filmmakers who helped bring the world of Harry Potter to life on-screen. Oscar winning Special Effects Supervisor, John Richardson, will demonstrate how the magnificent Chamber of Secrets door was created and Costume Designer, Laurent Guinci, will help you step into Professor Slughorn’s armchair suit for a unique photo opportunity.

Walk among the authentic sets and discover the behind the scenes secrets at the studios where it all began, ahead of the first tour of the day. Highlights include the Gryffindor common room, Dumbledore's office, the Weasley kitchen at The Burrow, the iconic Platform 9¾ that houses the original Hogwarts Express locomotive and, new for 2017, the Forbidden Forest.

Following a complimentary sample of Butterbeer in the Backlot Café, you will be able to step inside Harry Potter’s childhood home, number four Privet Drive, before wandering up the wizarding shopping street of Diagon Alley.

Tickets are priced at £99pp for adults and £79pp for children. Under 4’s are free. Terms and conditions apply.
