On this 2-hour* Harry Potter Walking Tour of Edinburgh we cover:

  • The inspiration for the Diagon Alley
  • Lord Voldemort’s burial place
  • The original Hogwarts School
  • Cafes and hotel where J.K Rowling wrote her books
  • Origins of Harry Potter
  • The inspiration for Quidditch

…and much more!

Come and experience a little magic with us!

You might already know that J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter in Edinburgh, and on this special Harry Potter Walking Tour we'll show you which sites were her inspiration for Hogwarts and the characters who dwelled within its magical walls.

See where Diagon Alley came to life, and where Lord Voldemort is buried, see the original Hogwarts school, as well as a virtual school assembly of its characters, and learn how Edinburgh’s own dark history of witches and wizards played a role in inspiring Rowling herself.


*Average tour length. The independent guides with whom we work have your best interests in mind; while the tour usually includes the sites and stories above and lasts this long, your tour may vary depending on what your guide thinks is best for your group!
