Free Harry Potter Tour


Join us on this Harry Potter Free Tour where we will take a walk through the streets of Edinburgh. We will explore its alleys, full of magic, to show you all the places that inspired JK Rowling to write that world of magic and fantasy.

On this tour we will share the Scottish stories and legends that inspired JK Rowling to create the Harry Potter characters and show how these stories were inspired by Scottish history and folklore.

In the Harry Potter Free Tour we will discover the city of Edinburgh in a very different way. We will visit shops and cafes, a cemetery and a school linked to the most famous wizard in the world and the rest of the characters in the saga.


We trust 100% in each of our professional guides, and each of them has their own unique, personal style to deliver the stories of the city. Therefore, their routes may vary slightly and cover different areas, but in most cases on the Edinburgh Free Walking Tour we will share with you:
