Description

Although most people think that Harry Potter was raised in London, it was actually in Edinburgh where he gave his first steps. Since the author, J K Rowling, couldn't focus at home, she used to go to many coffee shops to write her novel. Sometimes, among long hours of writing, she would walk around the city of Edinburgh in search of inspiration. Here you will discover the events that shaped the author's life, the places that she used to go and many more insights about the book. The tour begins where Rowling finished, at the Balmoral Hotel, and walks around some of the most beautiful places in Edinburgh and their connection with Harry Potter. Check the highlights to see what we'll cover in the tour!
