The Edinburgh of JK Rowling's Harry Potter - private tours
Discover Edinburgh differently during this private tour. Our team of wizards will take you through the streets of Edinburgh, and we will try together to understand better all the places and myths which inspired JK Rowling.
Did you know that Voldemort has a grave in Edinburgh cemetery? Or that the Patronus of James Potter comes from a Scottish legend? When she wrote Harry Potter, JK Rowling had just moved to Edinburgh and was inspired by everything she saw around her. During this private tour, you will follow her footsteps and discover more of the behind the scenes of the magic. You will learn both anecdotes about both Harry Potter and the life of its author while discovering all the hidden spots of Edinburgh - which are strikingly similar to the world described by JK Rowling.
Prices: £ 120 / 136€ per group up to 7 people (contact us for bigger groups)
Please note, young wizards (under 18) must be with an adult.
Meeting Point: 1 Barrie's Close, Edinburgh EH1 1RF
