Edinburgh Harry Potter Tour
A truly spellbinding bus tour of Edinburgh. Tour the locations that inspired the Harry Potter book series.
Jump aboard our vintage double-decker London bus and take in all of the most spellbinding sights that the city of Edinburgh has to offer, including those that inspired the tales of a certain famous boy wizard Harry Potter.
Our Harry Potter bus tour will travel to many of the locations in Edinburgh which inspired J.K. Rowling to write the Harry Potter series. This includes Greyfriar’s Cemetery where J.K.Rowling found inspiration for some character names such as Voldemort, aka Tom Riddle (Riddell), Spoon Cafe where she was a regular and wrote some of the first book, George Heriot’s School which was believed to be the inspiration for the architecture of Hogwarts plus many more locations to spy some wizards!
Arrive at the bus and you will be sorted into your house (or table) where you will be greeted with a drink. Non-alcoholic and alcoholic options will be available.
To eat, you will be able to choose between our Italian Antipasti & Wine or Pizza & Prosecco options:
Start your Friday or Saturday evening with a rustic Antipasti board and tuck into a delicious cheese selection, cured meats, herbed olives, chicken liver pate, caramelised onion chutney, crisp salad and grapes accompanied with oatcakes and crusty bread, all washed down with a glass of wine of your choice.
