Book Club Outing – Harry Potter Studio Tour

Author – Laura

At the end of November our Book Club spent the day immersed in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Kiera, Hazel, Toni and Laura made the 80 mile trip to Leavesden Studios in a car much less exciting than a flying Ford Anglia. But apart from a small spillage before we even set off we got there in one piece!

Harry Potter Studio Tour Christmas TreeTo say we were excited is a bit of an understatement. The minute we saw the Christmas tree in the foyer that was it.

Feeling festive with our Hogwarts in the Snow badges we joined the queue and managed to get right to the front. I’d like to say we planned it that way, but to be honest we were away with the fairies, high on glitter and baubles. We could have been stood anywhere and it wouldn’t have mattered.

I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, but from the moment we entered the first room (Toni had an extra special birthday treat… ) to the minute we climbed back into the car, tired but happy, we had an incredible time. One of the major highlights was the snow machine. We were drinking Butterbeer, in the snow. It shouldn’t get much more amazing. Except it does. All kinds of amazing.

The shop is expensive, but there are so many fabulous things to buy it would be just wrong to not buy a little something. I fell in love with a pink Pygmy Puff, and Hazel bought enough Chocolate Frogs to feed the whole of Gryffindor common room!

If you’re even a little bit of a fan of Harry Potter then you will love the Tour – it’s worth every penny.

One can never have enough socks,” said Dumbledore. “Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.”

Well that sounds good to me!

 

 

From everyone here at The Bookspa,

We wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
