About
The city of Edinburgh features regularly in the 'Harry Potter' films and books, but unless you know where to look, it can be difficult to discover significant spots by yourself. Find out how the city inspired J. K. Rowling to write the books—and listen to trivia and gossip that you might normally miss—on a walking tour that offers an intimate glimpse into Scotland’s capital city.

Fantastic tour
Oct 2021 • Family
We had a tour with Monique who's enthusiasm for all things Potter was infectious. I arrived claiming not to be much of a fan, but by the end of the tour, I'd scored 40 points for Gryffindor. It was a great way to see lots of the city and hear some interesting facts about both J K Rowling/Harry Potter and Edinburgh. Monique kept everyone really engaged and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

Great HP Tour
Great tour with Jen - she was so full of information and enthusiasm she really made the experience a blast! In addition to learning a ton about HP and JK Rowling (in a very balanced way), we also learned quite a bit about Edinburgh. Highly recommended!!!

Monique was an amazing tour guide, she absolutely pulled it together.
Aswell as getting more information on J.K Rowling’s life before the series, we were also included in a trivial quiz and given a hogwart’s house.

So boring
It was very boring and it was quite risky climbing the hill in the dark. Four of us left after an hour.
