About Potter Tours

The Great Feast - 3 hours £9 - £12

For all the budding Hermione Grangers and Albus Dumbledores who can't learn enough.

Noses down for your NEWTs - Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests: everything in the Rowling tour plus 3 times as many love stories, extra stories on writing, community, morality, resurrection, Moaning Myrtle and Hinkypunk. More JK Rowling biography, more Harry Potter origin stories. Requires a different starting point to take in all the optic lavish (sights).

JK Rowling's Edinburgh 2-ish hours £10

Like being friends with Hagrid, more than you bargained for.

JK Rowling is the most influential woman in the world. On this tour we dive deep into her history. Learn to use failure as a springboard, be inspired, stay committed and conquer the world. Discover the sights that inspired her and the cafes which fueled her. Experience how, through her adopted daughter, Edina once more left footprints upon the world.

All the content of the Potter tour with a little bit more. Perfect preparation for your OWLs - Ordinary Wizarding Levels.
+ 1 love story, the inspiration of the mirror of ERISED, the department of mysteries, Newt Scamander's stay in Edina, Wendelin the Weird's holiday spot. Takes in stories at Edinburgh Castle.

Edinburgh Free Potter Tour 100 minutes

All the chief sites connected to the books, perfect for restless Fred and George Weasleys who need just the minimum because they have mischief to make.

Enter Greyfriars kirkyard and the Harry Potter connections explode. We visit you know who's grave, a possible inspiration for Hogwarts, attempt to wake Peeves and explore some of the wizarding world’s lesser known traditions and tales.

We’ll hustle down a passable Knockturn alley, full of dark doorways, crooked stairs and the watching eyes of shopkeeps. At the foot of “Edinburgh's Diagon Alley”, we’ll reach our prize. I have been given a generous discount for fabulous Scottish ice cream. It could be Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream shop, except Florean was abducted and murdered by Death Eaters, so of course, it's been taken over. Its present owner has a pet snake. Which kinda makes sense.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Potter Tours are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
