½ day bike tour spiralling around greater Edinburgh, tracking JK Rowling's rags to riches story. Rowling loved writing in Edinburgh's old town cafes but she has long retreated from them. Come discover the fresh wonders of Rowling's secret world.

JK Rowling is the most acclaimed novelist of our time, the most well-read too. If you're a Harry Potter fan, and you've done an Old Town Harry Potter walking tour, well I've written this for you.

Join me &

  • visit the real places JK's been writing for quite some time.
  • We'll explore Rowling's family, friends, loves & attitudes to life.
  • There'll also be a whole bunch of trivia, but if you've read the books I hope that'll be interesting too.

This tour will give you stories no other fan has & show you the places most of Harry Potter was written & where her 'adult' (meaning adult protagonist) novels were too.

Because we have bicycles we'll also be able to reach out to a few Harry Potter inspirations no walking tour can manage.

Rowling's lived in Edinburgh for approaching 3 decades, she calls it 'her city', come explore the ocean she swims in & what Rowling's voyage might teach.

Parking

Weekends: parking on Holyrood Road is free.

Weekdays: If arriving before 09.00am a day's parking can be acquired from NCP car park for £7. NCP is minutes from the tour starting point. You could eat breakfast in one of many cafes & canteens nearby - I recommend 'Levels' for a hearty breakfast. Alternatively, I could set the day's tour to commence upon your arrival.

Requires 2 weeks notice. More notice, more love.
