Breakfast at Hogwarts

Breakfast at Hogwarts

Enjoy a magical sunday morning this summer

Sunday 21st and Sunday 28th August

Harry Potter fans of all ages are invited to watch dawn break over the Hogwarts castle model while enjoying an exclusive breakfast reception. The iconic castle took a team of 40 people seven months to build from scratch with over 300 fibre optic lights installed to simulate lanterns and torches.

After breakfast, you will be given early access to the Studio Tour where the Great Hall will be specially dressed for breakfast as it was in the magical film series right down to the boxes of Pixie Puffs and Cheeri Owls on the trestle tables. Staff members dressed in full Hogwarts’ uniforms will join you in the Great Hall for a complimentary souvenir photograph at the breakfast table.

Then you will be invited to 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 and the iconic Platform 9 ¾ that houses the original Hogwarts Express locomotive.

Following a complimentary tankard 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. The visit concludes in our lobby where a complimentary souvenir guidebook can be collected. Tickets will be on sale July 6th 2016 at 10am BST. Adult tickets will be available for £95pp, child tickets are £75pp.
