What you'll do

We'll discover the streets and secret alleyways of the Old Town area of Edinburgh, starting at Edinburgh Castle, then we'll wander down to "Diagon Alley" and find the gravestones of "Voldemort" and some other well known names in the Harry Potter series. We'll also spot "Hogwarts School" of Wizardry and find where the writer found her inspiration from. Learn about the famous and not so famous cafes where J.K. Rowling began her writing career and finished in the realms of luxury. The tour will last approximately 1 hour. However, please allow for an additional 20 minutes if tour runs over depending on group size, photo opportunities and question time.

Having gained a degree in Tourism management and extensively worked in the Edinburgh tourism industry I feel that I have the passion and knowledge to show you around! I specialised my final year thesis paper on the phenomenon that is Harry Potter and how it relates to Scottish tourism. Come with me muggles and explore where J.K. Rowling gained the inspiration for her global phenomenon. Visit the grave of "he who must not be named", learn about the cafe's where she sat and wrote the beginnings of Philosophers Stone and where she finished the series in the realms of luxury. ​

Where you'll be

The Old Town of Edinburgh is steeped in history, each alleyway and close has it's own story. We'll learn all about how these related to Harry Potter and delve deeper into the rich history of witchcraft and wizardry. We will explore a real life graveyard where we will seek out the famous grave of Tom Riddle and find other notable characters... The Elephant House cafe is a pilgrimage to Harry Potter fans and we'll find out exactly why. ​
