Calling All Harry Potter Fans to Edinburgh

Edinburgh, United Kingdom · About Sightseeing

Visit the source of Jk Rowling's inspiration for Harry Potter.

By Anita Draycott

One of the world’s most famous authors, JK Rowling wrote all of her internationally acclaimed Harry Potter series, whilst living in Edinburgh with her young family. Looking around at the city’s gothic architecture, starkly apparent in the school building of George Heriots and Fettes, to name but two, it easy to see where she found her inspiration.

Fans of the author can even visit the café where she wrote many of the novels - the Elephant House - located on South Bridge and a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle – or you can go online for a Google map of some of the key locations linked to the Harry Potter novels.
