Harry Potter’s Virtual Scotland Trail

Alohomora! Unlock the secrets of the magical world of Harry Potter following in the boy wizard’s footstep around Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands on this interactive virtual tour.

We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to come on a virtual tour around Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands.

Discover the places that the amazing Muggle – J K Rowling – drew inspiration from as she wrote her Harry Potter books whilst exploring the streets of Edinburgh.

This virtual tour explores many of the places associated with the books including a spooky, ghost-filled kirkyard – where you will find the grave of “He who must not be named”. Then walk along Victoria Street said to provide inspiration for Diagon Alley.

Next, it’s time to hop aboard the Hogwarts Express as we head to the Scottish Highlands where many places were used on location for the films – cross over the famous Harry Potter Bridge and head to Dumbledore’s final resting place.
This event is suitable for both children and adults and will involve audience participation and interaction. Tickets are £10 per screen – not per person!

Please bring your wands (sorry not supplied) and get ready to cast some spells. We await your reply by return owl.
