With the end of the summer holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about going ‘Back to Hogwarts’! From 1st September, the Great Northern Hotel in London is launching the perfect pick for wizarding world lovers who are looking to add a touch of magic to their next staycation. The enchanted escape combines tickets to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London with an overnight stay at the hotel for two, alongside tempting cocktails and in-room tricks and treats.
Aptly located directly next to King’s Cross Station – home to Platform 9 ¾ where the famous Hogwarts Express departs as well as the must-visit Harry Potter Shop – Great Northern Hotel’s ‘Back to Hogwarts’ package is ideal for any muggles looking to immerse themselves in the spellbinding magic of Harry Potter. Start by checking into your luxury Chamber (Of Secrets) at the capital’s oldest railway hotel, where you’ll be welcomed with a complimentary cocktail each on arrival, sure to bring a dash of liquid luck to your weekend getaway.
Next, all aboard the Knight Bus to Warner Bros. Studio in Watford, where scenes from all eight of the iconic movies were filmed. Whilst onboard the bus, get into the spirit of your wizarding adventure by watching one of the Harry Potter movies during the 1.5-hour journey (return transfer also included).
After touching down at the Warner Bros. Studio, wander in the footsteps of Harry Potter and discover how the legendary movies came to life on screen. Strike a pose as you make a run through the wall to Platform 9 ¾, take a stroll down Diagon Alley and meander through the Forbidden Forest – fingers crossed you don’t bump into *He Who Must Not Be Named*! You can also visit the newly opened Professor Sprout’s Greenhouse, and marvel at the many props and costumes on display that were used in the films.
Back at the hotel, you’ll find a selection of in-room surprises sure to delight – think chocolate wands and frogs or perhaps some infamous Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans! Finish your day with a restful night’s sleep in one of the charming, stylish bedrooms, which are designed to echo the architecture of the golden age of railway travel. The following morning, slyther-on downstairs for breakfast at the hotel’s relaxed and refined restaurant Plum + Spilt Milk, with a range of cooked and continental choices, using the finest local ingredients.
The ‘Back to Hogwarts’ package is priced from £599 for a one-night stay at the Great Northern Hotel for two guests sharing a Couchette Room. Price includes breakfast for two, a complimentary cocktail each on arrival, a selection of surprise in-room gifts, two adult tickets to the Warner Bros. Studios for ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ tour and return bus transfers with the pick-up and drop-off point conveniently located in front of the hotel*.
