Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience will make its debut in the beautiful woodland at Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire, U.K. As evening falls, mesmerising lights will transform the landscape into a magical outdoor trail for families to enjoy.

Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience is suitable for the whole family to enjoy and provides a huge amount for fans of all ages to see and do, giving them the opportunity to experience the magic of the wizarding world in a brand-new way. From discovering the wondrous and beautiful forest come to life, enjoying a wide range of delicious food and drinks at a lively and seasonally themed village; to perusing the on-site shop for Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise to take home – it promises to be a special evening to remember!
