"It’s no secret that Edinburgh played a huge part in shaping the Harry Potter books. This is where, as a young single mum, JK Rowling wrote the tale of the famous boy wizard. But she sought inspiration in all sorts of unlikely places including the spooky cemetery where the ancient graves of Tom Riddle and William McGonagall can still be seen. You’ll also see the building that inspired Hogwarts and there’s even time for a coffee in the very café that she put pen to paper. Muggles need not apply."
