Deep within the Castle's library, you have found old notes from Nicolas Flamel detailing his first attempts at creating the Philosopher’s Stone.  Unfortunately, most of his writing seems to have been damaged beyond repair, but you’ve managed to salvage the first step of the recipe: a couple of scraps of paper detailing a "Potion of True Luck". With end of the year exams around the corner, you and you friends decide to attempt brewing it. Unfortunately, you are missing 3 key ingredients to complete it and the only way to get them seems to be to steal them from the potion classroom’s pantry... 

During this interactive chemistry workshop, you will create your own potion, guided by a Potion Master. Create monstrous slimes, participate in a mini escape game, discover colour-changing ingredients, and enjoy many other experiments. At the end of the activity, bring with you your own potion to continue the adventure at home!

Duration: 1h20

Price: £255 per group until 5 people, +£48 per additional participant

Please note, young wizards (under 18) must be with an adult, and over 7 years old. All chemicals used during the workshop are non-toxic and suitable or children.

After the defeat of the Dark Lord, you're contacted by the Magical Government to get a hold of a stone granting eternal life, apparently forgotten and lost in the castle's forest after the final battle. In this game, you will go deep within the forest, and sneak into a long forgotten cave...



You're well known as the biggest pranksters in the whole castle, and tonight you want to pull off your biggest surprise to date: turning each one of the castle’s common rooms into a swamp! But will you manage to avoid the teachers patrolling the corridors, and make it by sunrise?

Duration: 2h

Price: £200 per group of up to 7 people

Please note, young wizards (under 18) must be with an adult, and over 7 years old.

Grab your wands and your brooms, the adventure begins!

You've heard rumours that the Dark Lord is rising again and now the Magical Government has fallen. The prophecy claims that unless the Potion of Power is brewed, he shall stand undefeated.

Nothing can go wrong, right?

Start your day by retracing the steps of JK Rowling and discover the places which inspired her when she created Harry Potter. After the private tour, warm yourself in one of the most haunted pubs in Edinburgh, and learn its secrets as you enjoy a delicious Scottish meal. Participate in an escape game at the Department of Magic, before heading for an Alchemy workshop and roleplaying game for the rest of the afternoon.

Duration: 6h
