Harry Potter fan? You can now spend your Valentine's Day in the Great Hall

Have a Harry Potter fan in your life? This is the perfect way to woo them…

Harry Potter might not be the most romantic of films, we’ll admit.

But if you have a Potterhead in your life, you’ll definitely be in their good books if you treat them to the latest offering from the Warner Bros Studio Tour – a Valentine’s Day feast, hosted in the iconic Hogwarts Great Hall. 

From Thursday 14 February to Saturday 16 February, guests will be invited to eat canapés and drink ‘Love Potion’ cocktails before “sitting down to dine on the authentic Great Hall set”. 

The special ‘Love Potion’ cocktails being offered on the night

The menu includes veggie and vegan options alongside options for meat eaters.

Meat eaters will be treated to a gin cured smoked salmon starter, served with a cucumber and fennel pickle and chlorophyll oil, with vegetarians being served a spiced beetroot tartare with burrata. Vegans get the same, with a cashew nut ricotta to replace the burrata. 

Mains include a confit breast of duck served with potatoes, veggies and blackberries, with a butternut squash pithivier for vegetarians. 

Dessert options include a tonka bean parfait and Sicilian lemon tart.

You’ll be drinking your special love potion cocktails on the famous Platform 9¾, and Warner Bros assure guests that the butterbeer will be flowing all night. 

The full menu for the night

The ticket also allows you after-hours access to the full studio tour, letting you explore sets from the film including the Forbidden Forest, Diagon Alley and Dumbledore’s office – making it the perfect romantic present for anyone who loves the Potter franchise. 

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 18 December at 10am – and with last year’s event selling out pretty quickly, anyone wanting a ticket should be as speedy as possible.

Only downside? The experience will set you back a cool £495 for two. Worth it for the person you love? We think so.
