Public Guided Tour

You are visiting Edinburgh and you would like to learn more about the origin of your favourite characters?  You want to discover your heroes (or foes) like never before? Join us every Sunday for special public guided tours where we will share the places and people which inspired JK Rowling and Arthur Conan Doyle

Public Guided tour :
The Edinburgh of JK Rowling's Harry Potter

Did you know that Voldemort has a grave in a cemetery in Edinburgh? Or that the Patronus of James Potter comes from a Scottish legend? When she wrote Harry Potter, JK Rowling had just moved to Edinburgh and was inspired by everything she saw around her. During this public tour, you will follow her footsteps and go behind the scenes of some of the magic. You will hear anecdotes about both Harry Potter and the life of its author, while discovering all the hidden spots of Edinburgh – which are strikingly similar to the world described by JK Rowling.
