Join us in an underground Close, lost for centuries after the great Edinburgh fire, to brew your own hot chocolate potion. Solve puzzles, create candy floss ghosts, enjoy spooky cupcakes and channel your magic for an unforgettable experience!

Have you always dreamed of joining a wizarding school? Children and adults alike can participate in a private hot chocolate potion workshop and become a true Master of the Potions during an immersive experience at The Lost Close! Miss McDernott will be your wizarding guide and will show you all the steps to make a complex potion. Summon ghosts by making your own candy floss, sculpt bones and delicious mummies, paint your own cookies, and most importantly, brew your own hot chocolate and try to solve the mysteries of the classroom.

At the end of the activity, you’ll take away a cauldron mug to continue the adventure at home!

Please note, young wizards (under 18) must be with an adult.

Duration: 1h20

Price: £255 per group until 5 people, +£48 per additional participant

Children under 4 can enjoy a more traditional hot chocolate with pumpkin mallows for £4.50.

Tour company information


At Thunderdices we offer private tours and activities in Scotland with a storytelling twist. Discover the hidden myths and legends during tours off the beaten path: from the mysteries of Surgeon Hall which inspired Conan Doyle when he created Sherlock Holmes, to the places which inspired JK Rowling when she created Harry Potter. Be a wizard during hot chocolate potion workshops, alchemy workshops, or even wand-making workshops! Do you want to push this further and play D&D in a templar underground cave system or castle? We can set this up for you as part of our customised experiences.
