£60 for a group, as of spring 2021.

JK Rowling is a moderately influential woman who's sold a few books. On this tour we dive deep into her history. Learn to use failure as a springboard, be inspired, stay committed and conquer the world. Discover the sights that inspired her and the cafes which fueled her. Experience how, through her adopted daughter, Edinburgh once more left footprints upon the world.

We'll see perhaps 40% of the interesting sights in Edinburgh's gothic old town.

  • We'll chat about Edinburgh's connection to Fantastic Beasts' Newt Scamander.
  • The inspirations and origins of various characters and beasts.
  • We'll visit a good few places which can't be fit on shorter tours including fabulous old College, romantic Riddle's Court, Surgeon's Hall.
  • Fun lovers can get sorted and keep their wits sharp with an occasional quiz.

And all the stuff of other Potter tours including the cafes Rowling wrote in, the Dark Lord's grave, Rowling's graduation ceremony. Victoria Street, its commonalities with Harry's Diagon Alley.

50% longer than Pottertrail & their many clones.

My blog exploded the market, Edinburgh is now the battle of the seven Potters. Come on the tour that spawned them all.
