Although most people think that Harry Potter was born in a suburb in London, on Privet Drive, it was actually in Edinburgh that he took his first steps!

The Harry Potter author frequented many coffee shops to write her work, as she could not concentrate at home, and from time to time, between coffees, she would wander around the neighbourhood seeking inspiration. It was here in Edinburgh, in J.K. Rowling's imagination, that Harry Potter was created.

A story that has made many young (and not so young) people dream of accompanying Harry, Ron and Hermione on their adventures at Hogwarts. On this Harry Potter tour, we will learn more about J.K. Rowling and her life, almost as novelistic as that of her characters.

We will get to know the most magical places in the city. Something to keep in mind because Edinburgh itself already seems to be enchanted. Visit fantastic schools, tombstones from beloved characters and much more! The city is also full of shops and venues with references to the wizard!

For these reasons, among many others, if you want to discover Harry Potter, you have to come to Scotland, and especially to its capital, and on our Harry Potter Tour you'll discover all this and more!
