Are you ready to apparate to Edinburgh’s top Harry Potter sights?

The Ministry of Magic has granted us permission to lift the veil of secrecy for just one day…

Join our team of squib guides and step through the brick wall to feel the magic of Harry Potter’s Edinburgh. This tour will take you on J.K. Rowling’s journey from single mother to acclaimed author; from “the birthplace of Harry Potter” to Rowling’s golden hand prints and venues housing Harry potter exhibitions. With us you will see first-hand the locations that inspired places and scenes from the books and films, including Knockturn & Diagon Alley, the Dark Lord’s grave, the Dementor’s Underpass, and Hogwarts itself. We may even stop off at a couple of Harry Potter shops!

There will be trivia rounds to keep you on your toes and truly test your knowledge of the Harry Potter world. An experience not to be missed for true Potter fans, we’ll show you Edinburgh’s must-see landmarks and key locations from the Harry Potter book and film series.

What are you waiting for? Potterheads assemble!

“Emma was amazing, she showed us an Edinburgh we would never have been able to see ourselves. Thank you so much, would recommend (even with covid rules, she was very respectful).”

“Such a magical and insightful tour with Kate (& Boo!). Offered great insight into Edinburgh as well as Harry Potter influences, packed full with interesting and entertaining stories from Highland histories. There’s something for everyone on this tour, it’s great for those accompanying avid Potter fans too! Kate was the perfect guide; built great rapport and was a wonderful storyteller.”

“As someone who has never read or watched Harry Potter I didn’t know what to expect. This was very much for my partner when I booked it, and I knew she’d love every mins but I was sceptical If I am honest. I do love history however and found this tour incredibly interesting as we learnt lots about the history of Edinburgh, with some Harry Potter thrown in. It wasn’t death my Harry Potter facts but we got a flavour, and I could feel how JK Rowling got her inspiration and saw real life examples of where she got it from. Our guide Kate was fantastic as well. Really enthusiastic, upbeat, friendly and personable. She was great. In terms of value, definitely worth the cost, and whilst I didn’t prior I strongly recommend reading up on the company involved. They are a not for profit organisation raising funds for a wonderful cause through these tours, so I left feeling like I had accomplished a few things. It didn’t take up too much time of our trip, I’d say approx 2 hours, but my partner loved it and I definitely scored some brownie points – winning!! Try it, you won’t regret it. 5 out of 5 stars from me.”

“This tour was the perfect way to explore Edinburgh for our first time. Caroline- you absolute gem! This was my favourite part of our holiday and was so fun and we learned so much. I would recommend anyone to do this tour- absolutely brilliant.”

“Emma did an awesome job! From the beginning she figured out how much Harry Potter we knew so she wouldn’t spoil anything for our young son (who is still reading the series). She led us with great enthusiasm and patience so that we felt like we were “discovering” JK Rowling’s inspirations together. Despite the rain and extra COVID precautions, our whole muggle family had a great time! Highly recommend this family-friendly tour!!”

“We had Kate as our tour guide and she was AMAZING! So friendly, bubbly, and energetic. We really enjoyed listening to the stories she was telling and felt she was really passionate about both Harry Potter and the mission. Edinburgh is a beautiful and fun city and an absolute must on any UK trips. We loved seeing this side of the city and getting to walk the same streets that inspired this incredible series. The tour is filled with fun facts, beautiful sites, and opportunities to shop all things HP.”

“Our tour guide John was brilliant. Really insightful, not just about Harry Potter but also about local history. Gave great advice about where to go in Edinburgh (can’t wait to try that veggie haggis!). Such a fantastic experience with such a friendly host, who took time to get to know everyone whilst we walked around. Cannot recommend this enough!! Especially if you are a Potterhead!”
