Harry Potter – the Edinburgh connection

Harry Potter tshirts

JK  Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter book series, lives in Edinburgh, where she wrote the Harry Potter books.  Many of the sites used in the Harry Potter films can be found in Edinburgh and in the Scottish countryside.  There is a Harry Potter walking tour that fans can go on in Edinburgh.

When we take visitors on a day trip to Edinburgh, we include a few Harry Potter sights or a Harry Potter tour.  And everyone has the chance to buy plenty of Harry Potter souvenirs – there’s a great choice in wands!
