Wat je gaat doen

After learning a spell or two, we start our tour in Edinburgh's historic Greyfriars Kirkyard where JK Rowling found several names for characters in the books. You'll learn who the world's worst poet was and which Hogwarts character is named after him as well as visiting the grave of Lord Voldemort himself.

From here we'll also talk about two buildings that helped to inspire Hogwarts and of course give one lucky member of the group the chance to be sorted!

From Greyfriars we'll take you out into the streets, past the suspiciously named Potterrow and on to three locations where JK Rowling wrote. We'll track her escalation of wealth from relying on free coffees from her brother-in-law in the Nicolson Cafe to trashing the most expensive hotel in the city, via the famous Elephant House.

We conclude our tour on the real life Diagon Alley, better known by muggles as Victoria Street.

This tour is highly interactive with a house point competition along the way and plenty of opportunities to ask our expert guides whatever you like.

We are the original, biggest and highest-rated Harry Potter tour in Edinburgh. Consistently ranked in the Top 5 Edinburgh Tours on TripAdvisor, featured in The Times, PBS and BBC Scotland, with nearly a decade's experience behind us - you will not be disappointed!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We start in Greyfriars Kirkyard where JK Rowling collected many character names. From here you'll get excellent views of both George Heriots School and Edinburgh Castle, both considered large influences on Hogwarts.

We'll then visit three JK Rowling writing locations in the form of Spoon, the Elephant House and Balmoral Hotel before finishing on Victoria Street, better known as the real life Diagon Alley.

Charlie was our tour guide for the Harry Potter tour! He knew lots and shared lots of local knowledge we wouldn’t have otherwise been able to find out on our own surrounding HP and JK Rowling. Really engaging and enthusiastic. Would recommend as part of your Edinburgh experience!

Meer tips

For those who haven't read all the books/seen all the films, the tour can be easily adapted to avoid spoilers - just us know and we can adapt!

Wat je mee moet nemen

A good pair of shoes - preferably boots - as some parts of the graveyard where we start the tour can get quite muddy depending on recent weather.

Something that you can use as a wand. This can be something as simple as a pen or umbrella. Anything roughly wand-shaped will do!
