Book a Stay at Hogwarts


By: Five Star Alliance

Harry Potter fans, rejoice! You can now book a room at Hogwarts, the mythical wizarding academy attended by the boy wizard and his pals. Sort of. Since Hogwarts is, well, fictional, you can't really check-in. But, the Georgian House in London has transformed some guest rooms into Wizard's Chambers. The rooms are part of the hotel's Harry Potter Tour Package. The first part of the package is the Muggle Walking Tour, which showcases landmark sights used in the making of the film. Then, check into the Wizard's Chambers. They have a gothic feel, very true to the spirit of Hogwarts, with 4 poster beds, potion bottles and cauldrons, and unexpected wizardly details. A full English breakfast is included. 

After breakfast, take a walk to Victoria Station and climb aboard the Harry Potter Tour bus. The bus takes you to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour– The Making of Harry Potter. This tour gives you the lowdown on how the films were made, and you get to see many of the sets and props that feature in the movies. This tour has 5 stars and rave reviews, and is a must for any Harry Potter fan.

Harry Potter Package Details and Prices

For two people, 1 night in the Wizard Chambers, with breakfast and Muggle tour: £249.00. (£60 for an additional child and £72 for an additional adult)

For two people, 1 night in the Wizard Chambers, with breakfast, Muggle Tour tickets and Studio Tour tickets including the branded bus transport from Victoria £363, (£112 for an extra child and £129 for an extra adult)
