Hogwarts In The Snow!

Yesterday was quite possibly the most magical day of my life. With excited definitely being an understatement. I received tickets to go for my birthday back in June but I knew I wanted to experience it in winter so after 6 months of waiting I finally got to see the most spectacular and magical thing. Before going I didn't look at any pictures on social media and wouldn't listen to anyone who said what was there as I wanted it to be a complete surprise which it most definitely was. 

(So I wouldn't recommend looking at these pictures if you want the same effect!) 


It began with walking around the Great Hall, Gryffindor's common room and all of the magical special effects before flying a broomstick over the streets, rivers and Hogwarts itself via a green screen - photographs are available at every stop of course - then came Dumbledores study, Hagrid's hut and even more smaller items are shown such as the Golden Snitch, wands and Horcrux's. The amount of effort that goes into a tiny object is incredible. 

The forbidden forest (the newest feature of the tour) was like the rest... Amazing! With giant trees, smoke and a couple of surprises along the way. Then came one of the things I looked forward to the most! The Hogwarts express! After pushing my trolley through to platform 93/4 I grabbed a few photos and boarded the train to see how it evolved over the films. A quick stop at the railway shop for merchandise and then came to the cafe for a bite to eat and maybe even a butterbeer if you fancy! 

Outside were the bigger sets Privet Drive, the Knight Bus, Hogwarts Bridge and much more to look in awe at. Before the final stops of Diagon Alley and of course Hogwarts itself. As I walked through the doors the castle took my breath away, whilst the snow created even more magic and beauty. 

The tour was amazing and if you couldn't tell already I loved every moment and I would definitely recommend going especially if you love the magical world of Harry Potter as much as myself.



  1. Nice post! I went to Making Of Harry Potter in June of last year and I really wanna go back for Hogwarts in Snow as it looks amazing. It looks like you had a great time, did you try butterbeer?
