This tour is your owl letter to the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
NOTICE — no half-giant or wand required.
Edinburgh is an old city that gave a hiding place to unemployed single mother. In return, she attracted millions of tourists here to wander the streets looking for magical inspiration. So do not be surprised if the urge to start a book appears.
We start at the former Spoon Bistro, the little known place where the first HP book was written. You will then see the school that is speculated to be an inspiration for Hogwarts itself.
After that, you will be guided through a mysterious Greyfriars Kirkyard to find the tombstone of Tom Riddell. To warm up, the tour will get you to the busy Victoria street with cafes and souvenir shops. This very street recalls the memories of Diagon Alley and preschool shopping.
Through the narrow cobblestone streets, you will see the New College of the University of Edinburgh and gilded handprints of JK in front of the City Chambers. We finish at Balmoral Hotel, the luxurious place where the last HP novel was finished.
All addresses, maps, and butterbeer recommendations are provided in a careful manner.
The tour is well suited for the first timers in Edinburgh and Harry Potter fans.
Experience the magic!
