About this experience

Immerse yourself in Edinburgh's wizarding world without the expense or time constraints of a group tour with an audio guide. See the spots that inspired J.K. Rowling's global phenomenon, including the Old Town and Edinburgh Castle.\n\n

Start your visit on the Edinburgh Castle esplanade, where you can take in views of the castle and surrounding streets. Continue along the Royal Mile, Edinburgh's most famous street and home to parliaments old and new, law courts, a cathedral, churches, and a vast range of cafés and pubs.\n\n

Wander down to Victoria Street, one of Scotland's most photographed streets and the inspiration behind Diagon Alley. Next, head to Greyfriars Kirkyard where you can spot the grave of Tom Riddle and some other well-known characters from the Harry Potter series.\n\n

Pass by the Writer's Museum, a literature fan's heaven that includes portraits, works, and personal objects from the collections of Robert Burns, Walter Scott, and Robert Louis Stevenson.\n\n

Spot “Hogwarts School of Wizardry” along the way too, and if you like, you can stop in at the famous and not-so-famous cafes where J.K. Rowling wrote before Harry Potter became a best seller. Finish at the Grassmarket where you’ll hear a story of one very lucky lady from the 1700s.\n\n

Feel free to start, pause, or restart at any time and complete your visit at your own pace. If your travel plans change, you can use the audio guide at any date of your choice or use the virtual in-app option for an at-home experience.
