The Elephant House

21 George IV Bridge, EH1 1EN

JK Rowling is said to have penned several chapters in this little coffee shop.

GreyFriars Bobby

Just down from the Elephant House sits another literary legend. Now, to be fair, this has nothing to do with Harry Potter - but he is smack, bang in the middle of the coffee shop, and your next location, so it's only right to say hello.

Greyfriars Kirkyard

The graveyard, made famous by this loyal little terrier, is also home to a tombstone. This tombstone sparked the inspiration for one of Rowling's most harrowing characters.

This is Thomas Riddell's final resting place. Rowling shortened it to Tom Riddle, aka Lord Voldemort. Dotted around the churchyard, and joining him in an eternal sleep, are Elizabeth Moodie, aka Mad-Eye Moody, and William McGonagall, aka Professor McGonagall.

George Heriot’s School

The school that looks like a castle, George Heriot's, is said to be the inspiration for how Hogwarts looked.

The Meadows

Edinburgh's garden is where you will find Potter enthusiasts, playing a spot of quidditch, on a Saturday afternoon.

Victoria Street

Said to be the inspiration behind Diagon Alley, this narrow street is packed full of great places to eat and shop.

City Chambers

The very hands that wrote Harry Potter are immortalised within the grounds of the City Chambers. A worthy pit stop for any Potter enthusiast.

The Balmoral Hotel

This very room is where Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was completed, in 2007.
