Warner Bros Studio Tour's Hogwarts In The Snow Event Is Returning

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London's 'Hogwarts in the Snow' event is returning with 'more snow than ever'.

The annual event sees the famous sets undergo a festive transformation and this year, for the very first time, Diagon Alley will get a wintery makeover.

The idea is to make visitors feel as though they're at Hogwarts and it's Christmas - a double dose of magic.

Of course, it won't actually be snowing on the set, so the studio will have to deploy some of the old techniques they utilised when making the movies.

The studio said: "The cobbled stones and magical shop fronts of Diagon Alley will be given a festive makeover, draped in layers of filmmaking snow.

"During filming, many different types of 'snow' were used, each selected for its ability to crunch under foot, float like falling flakes or glisten in the light like ice, but never melt.

"The same techniques will be used by filmmakers to cover the magical shopping street this year."

The Hogwarts model castle will also receive a healthy dusting of 'snow', as it does every year.


The Gryffindor Common Room and Boys' Dormitory will be decorated with original props, including handmade Christmas cards, some of which were created by the cast members during production.

Meanwhile, the Great Hall will be decked out with wreaths, garlands and trees, while the long dining tables will be dressed as they were for the feast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (the turkeys and hams will be fake though, sadly).

The Hogwarts in the Snow experience will run from 14 November until 17 January and tickets must be purchased in advance.

They're priced at £47 ($61) for an adult, £38 ($50) for a child and £150 ($196) for a family of two adults and two children, or one adult and three children.
