Wizards in Scotland

Wizarding legends guided tour and potion drink




To the Department of Magical Affairs, 



Did you know that Thomas Riddell has a grave in a cemetery in Edinburgh? Or that the white stag is a symbol of Edinburgh? We can never know what inspires an author, as their creativity comes from many different sources but during a walking tour of the Old Town, discover all the legends and hidden spots of Edinburgh which surrounded JK Rowling while she started to live in Edinburgh in 1993.

If you book directly from our website, enjoy monstrous sweets to join the wizarding world through your tastebuds.

Tour Highlights:

  • Greyfriars Kirkyard: Venture into the atmospheric Greyfriars Kirkyard, where gravestones bearing familiar names like Thomas Riddell and William McGonagall will spark your wizarding imagination. 

  • Victoria Street: Wander down the charming Victoria Street, a vibrant and winding thoroughfare which might have inspired Diagon Alley. Marvel at the eclectic shops and colorful facades.

  • Grassmarket: Executions took place in this market from the 15th century, and they may have inspired a famous beheaded ghosts or two!
