If, like most of us, you’re still looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to give the Harry Potter fan in your life, you’ve stumbled onto the right article. Instead of candy hearts and stuffed teddies, we’re gunning for this magical treat on Valentine’s eve.
The GENIUSES at Harry Potter World, located just north of London in Watford, have decided to host a lavish banquet in the Great Hall of Hogwarts on both February 13th and 14th, during which you can gaze into your lover’s eyes will taking in the grandeur of the magical setting. Yep, this is all of our Valentine’s Day dreams come true.
Here’s how your evening of Harry Potter bliss is set to pan out. Firstly, you’ll be whisked away from the Watford platform and taken to the studios via a ‘shuttle bus’. After all, a Nimbus 3000 would totally spoil your hair.
Then you’ll be welcomed to a romantic drinks reception where you’ll be treated to tasty canapés.
One the first drinks have been poured, you’ll be invited to walk the red carpet (swish) and take your seats with your loved one by your side to enjoy a three course meal with the Great Hall as your dreamy backdrop.
After your meal, you’ll get an exclusive after-hours tour of the rest of the studio, culminating in a chocolate feast overlooking a twinkling Hogwarts Castle replica. Bliss.
Then, just when you thought the evening couldn’t get any more magical, you’ll leave the Harry Potter Studios with your very own wand as a keepsake, after which you’ll depart at midnight. OMG.
Now, here’s the downside – tickets will set you back a very cool £247.50 EACH. That’s £495 PER COUPLE. What’s more, you don’t have time to deliberate either – tickets go on sale today. So hop to it.
If your other half doesn’t get you this for V-Day, we say chuck ‘em.
