ATTN: ‘Harry Potter’ Fans Can Spend This Halloween At Hogwarts

Wizards, muggles and everything in between, listen up! Cancel any spooky plans you’ve made this October and book yourself some flights to London, because when it comes to one-of-a-kind Halloween destinations, it doesn’t get better than Hogwarts.

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is bringing back its after dark Halloween event for three nights only.

The unique experience allows visitors to enjoy a multi-course meal surrounded by some of the most iconic sets and props used in the films.

The Hogwarts After Dark events will take place on Friday, October 26; Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28, inviting guests over the age of 18 to enter the park once everyone else has left, from 7:30pm through midnight.

It’ll all kick off with some ooky spooky dry-ice cocktails and canapés before heading into the Great Hall to enjoy a two-course dinner and drinks. Think dishes like smoked duck with pumpkin puree and blood-orange jelly, goat cheese ravioli with roasted squash and pumpkin seed granola and roasted lamb loin with vegetable pudding.

Courses will be carefully paired with wine, and you better believe the butterbeer will be flowing.

After dinner, you’ll be treated to a tour of the studio before enjoying dessert in the Forbidden Forest. Just look out for those pesky Death Eaters, amirite?
