The Vegan Magic of ‘The Making of Harry Potter’

Get your robe on, grab your wand, drape your house scarf over your shoulders, and prepare for magic: welcome to Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.

This one-of-a-kind look at all the goings on behind the scenes of the Harry Potter films is made even better by tucking into a veggie hot dog, some vegan cake, or vegan fish and chips – and all these goodies can be found in the studio’s food outlets. So grab your Firebolt and pack your trunk, because you’re about to embark on a magical journey filled with so many vegan offerings that even Ron will feel full for once.

Now hop aboard the Hogwarts Express, because your next stop is vegan food galore!

Located in the Studio Tour Hub, the Food Hall has delicious animal-friendly dishes available at all times of day – witching hour excluded, unfortunately.

For wizards who love to wake up bright and early to get those spells in before dawn, there’s a bewitching vegan breakfast option available, which comes with vegan bacon, scrambled tofu, and more. If, like Hedwig, you’re more of a night owl, fear not – the Food Hall serves food from opening time until 5 or 8 pm, depending on what time the studio closes.
