Ce vei face

Join me as we uncover the history and secrets of Harry Potter in Edinburgh, delving into the mind of JK Rowling to discover the parts of Scotland’s capital that influenced many aspects of the Wizarding World.

On this walking tour we will explore the streets and alleyways of Edinburgh following in the footsteps of Joanne Rowling, and examining her rise to success, as while this might not be where the idea for Harry was born, given that the books were written here, Edinburgh is absolutely where The Boy Who Lived grew up and became the literary sensation and worldwide phenomenon he is today.

Along the way I will share my expert knowledge of behind-the-scenes stories spanning the the almost three decades JK Rowling has been crafting the Harry Potter mythology. From arriving in Edinburgh with nothing to her name but an idea for a magic schoolboy, to being the world’s first billionaire author. Answering such questions as; why is the American version of the first film slightly shorter than everywhere else; how do they make Hagrid look so tall; and why if your copy of the first book has a specific typo, you might be sitting on a fortune worthy of the goblins of Gringotts themselves!

I’ll be sharing my knowledge of Edinburgh’s rich and vast history and some of the weirder stories you might not hear anywhere else, just to make sure everyone has a magical time, Hogwarts expert or not
Other things to note
Be aware the tour has a lot of uphill walking so make sure little legs (under 11 yo) are up for it.

Scottish weather is famously dreary, so please dress weather appropriately, especially shoes as there may be some mud.

A quick jaunt to the castle walls for a picturesque views of the city, then through the winding closes and alleyways, and Greyfriars cemetery to find other influences (such as a certain magical shopping street). Finishing at the Elephant House cafe
