Tour description

Join us to discover the city of Edinburgh in a very different way , since JK Rowling , the author of the Harry Potter novels, was inspired by this city to create this entire magical universe of fantastic creatures and wonderful characters. It was in Edinburgh that the famous magician came to life in the early 90s.
We will talk about the writer's beginnings in the city, where she lived and where she wrote her novel. On the tour we will take a walk through the streets of Edinburgh, we will enter its alleys full of magic to show all those places that inspired JK Rowling to write that world of magic and fantasy.
We will visit streets and alleys, shops and cafes, a cement building and a school that have a lot to do with the most famous magician in the world and the rest of the characters in the saga.
