A magical night’s sleep in a Harry Potter hotel in London

Fancy spending the night in a Harry Potter-themed hotel in London? While the ‘Wizarding Chambers’ at Georgia House Hotel are not directly affiliated with the brand, they offer up the chance to stay somewhere truly magical in the heart of the city.

If you’re a Potter fan, there’s probably no better place to indulge in the mania than in London.

You know. That nondescript city, on a tiny island where you can essentially be whoever you want or do whatever you want to do (if you’ve got the funds).

If you want to stay somewhere truly magical, then consider booking into the Wizard Chambers at the Georgian House Hotel in London.

What it’s like to stay at a Harry Potter Hotel in London

Our bed for the night. Unfortunately it was all red, when we are both Ravenclaws.

The hotel’s rooms are not directly affiliated with Rowling’s characters, hence the name ‘Wizard Chambers’, rather than anything Potter particular.

However, it is an opportunity to enter the land of magical fantasy – perfect for those whose Hogwart’s acceptance letter got mysteriously lost in the mail en route to their house (probably thanks to Errol).

The rooms have been extensively written about across the internet… but I don’t want to spoil the surprises for anyone wanting to visit, too much.

However, I will say that the staff put on a big effort to make a real night of it for their guests.

The lead up into entering the room is pretty special and there’s an extensive stack of HP DVDs available to watch in your Wizarding Chambers, if you really want to immerse yourself in the scene.

Love a little bit of taxidermy, even if it’s fake.

There are two rooms you can reserve for your stay.

The Wizard Chambers

You’ll enter this particular room through a portrait-lined passageway.

These particular rooms inside this 19th century hotel have stained-glass windows, archways, cauldrons, trunks and four-poster beds. Straight outta Hogwarts, for sure.

The booking of the room includes a ‘Wizarding Breakfast’.

I ordered the ‘Forbidden Forest’ Full English, which is delicious.

Prices for this magical experience start at £339.

Make sure you book well in advance, as the rooms tend to go quickly.

The Enchanted Chambers

These rooms are a bit smaller and can be found behind a bookcase door.

Prices start at £287 and includes an ‘enchanted’ breakfast.

Other magical experiences at this London Harry Potter Hotel

You can extend the enchantment with a couple of other experiences while you’re staying at the hotel.

Wizard afternoon tea

London loves its afternoon teas and the Georgian House Hotel offers a ‘Wizard Afternoon Tea’.

It’s available weekends from 1.30pm-5pm at a cost of £40.

There’s also a vego and vegan option, as well as a menu for kids. And you can tack on bottomless bubbles for an extra £20.

Wizard potion making

There’s also the option to go down to the hotel’s bar and make your own ‘potions’ (delicious cocktails) at a special workshop during your stay.

This experience runs from 5pm–6pm Saturday and Sunday. It’s £25 (and a non-alcoholic version is available for £20) and you can apparate back to your room after making two cocktails.

Dolores Umbridge’s office is pretty darn cool, though.

Harry Potter Warner Brother’s Studio Tour

Years on, I’m still not sure of how I personally feel about the Studio Tour – I’m a traditionalist who prefers the books, over the movies.

However, there’s no denying that other fans have loved it and I’m probably an old sourpuss anyway. Go there and enjoy yourself.

See Harry Potter & the Cursed Child Onstage

This was a top three highlight for this HP fan, during my time spent living in London.

I somehow managed to score tickets to the first run of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It remains the greatest stage show I have ever seen in my life. I go to a lot of shows. Trust me, it’s good.

Privately, I kick myself for not having done this years ago, as now there is an eternal line and a tacky gift store next door.

Yet, if you’re a super big Potter fan (and have a bit of time to wait on your hands), it’s something worth doing. I guess.

Take a Harry Potter Themed Tour Around the City

Now this looks like fun.

You can partake in a free walking tour to various settings of the movie, located around the city.

It’s probably also worth taking a day trip out to Oxford if you have the time (mostly just because it’s a nice place) to see some more sights from the movie, such as the Bodleian Library and ‘The Great Hall’, at Christ Church College.

And if you want to go full Potter during your trip to London, refer to this wonderful, wizarding packing list.

What have been some of your favourite Potter-themed activities in London?

PS. If you’re looking for other cool places to stay in the UK, why not try sleeping in a church overnight?

  1. Admittedly I’m not a Harry Potter fan but I have to say the unique experience really sucked me in. I think for anyone who is into Harry Potter or just an adventure that seems like a really entertaining way to immerse yourself in the experience. But you said there’s surprises you didn’t mention: now I’m curious! 😉

    1. Haha they’re not massive, massive surprises, but I feel like the hotel puts a lot of work into the whole “production” and I wouldn’t want to ruin that for anyone. I imagine it would be jolly good fun even if you’re not a fan. It’s always nice to stay somewhere that’s a little bit quirky and different!
