Yesterday Jamie and I headed to see Hogwarts in the Snow - the festive makeover given to the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Decorations lined the Great Hall and the Gryffindor common room, as a sprinkling of faux-snow covered the famous castle, looking much more impressive than my photos can convey. We’re big fans of the movies and books so we loved every second of touring the studios, from seeing all the props to (sort of) taking a ride in the light blue Ford.

I won’t completely spoil it for those of you who haven’t yet made the trip, but it makes for a fun day out and it's so easy to get to on the train. As well as taking you through real sets and uncovering some movie secrets, this is one of only two spots in the world where you can sip a cup of Butterbeer. Or - if you're anything like us - guzzle it down and feel sick throughout the rest of the tour.

For gift shop addicts (just me?), there's a lot of merchandise on offer, too - we spent at least an hour trawling through the wands, hoodies and chocolate frogs. Hogwarts returns to its snow-free state after February 2nd, but Christmas tree or no Christmas tree, I'm definitely going again.
