Harry Potter in Edinburgh

Victoria Street Night

The Boy Wizard

In June 1997 an unknown author named JK Rowling released her first novel and introduced the world to Muggles, Quidditch, The Marauder's Map and Pumpkin Juice. Since then, stories of life, love, friendship, loyalty and destiny – and a bit of magic – have kept us hooked.


Whether you fancy getting spooked by "He who must not be named" in Greyfriar's Kirkyard, or while away the afternoon sipping lattes in the cafés that J.K. Rowling frequented when she was penning the novels, Edinburgh is filled with Harry Potter adventures that will last a lifetime.
