Who hasn't wanted to wake up to breakfast at Hogwarts?
On 21 and 28 August, visitors to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will be able to start their day with breakfast at Hogwarts.
A special breakfast reception will be held around one of the Studio Tour's most iconic displays: the model of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, dramatically lit to simulate daybreak.
A team of 40 people worked for seven months to create the model for the Harry Potter films, installing 300 fibre optic lights to give the appearance of lit-up lanterns and torches.
The house tables in the Great Hall set will also be laid out for breakfast time, right down to wizarding cereals like Cheeri Owls and Pixie Puffs. You even have the chance to get a complimentary picture taken while sat at the Great Hall tables.
And once you’ve experienced this rather special start to the day, you’re free to enjoy the rest of the tour, including the recently-opened number four, Privet Drive set.
The event comes at an exciting time for the Studio Tour, which recently announced a new feature called Finding the Philosopher’s Stone – a continuation of the tour’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) fifteenth anniversary celebrations.
The new feature will be jam-packed with props and special effects from the first film, exploring the magic behind Harry’s first ever adventure from the Wizard chess board to Fluffy the three-headed dog’s drool.
For the first time, you’ll be able to touch a moving display of Devil’s Snare, the pesky plant that has a tendency to wrap itself round anybody nearby. And giant chess pieces will move across a chess board on the Studio Tour's backlot, created by special effects supervisor John Richardson and his team.
Other little relics of Harry’s first year at Hogwarts will be dotted around the tour for fans to spot, including lovely vats of Troll snot, pools of silvery unicorn blood, and the Philosopher’s Stone itself.
The new additions to the tour will undoubtedly bring back a lot of childhood memories, so prepare to get very emotional as Harry’s first adventure unfolds all over again.
Breakfast at Hogwarts takes place on 21 August and 28 August 2016, and tickets go on sale on Wednesday 6 July. Finding the Philosopher’s Stone runs from Friday 22 July, to Monday 5 September 2016 and tickets are on sale now.
