Harry Potter Tours from Edinburgh
Hogwarts may be a magical place, but the word of Harry Potter is rooted in some real spots in Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands, many of which are open to visitors. Here are some of the top ways to experience the Harry Potter magic in Scotland.

City Sightseeing Tours
Walking through Edinburgh gives Potter fans a chance to see some filming locations, as well as places that inspired author JK Rowling to dream up the magical world in the first place. See real-life locations that stirred the entrance to Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Tom Riddle's graveyard, while also visiting some of Edinburgh's main attractions along the way.

Alnwick Castle Tours
Take a day trip from Edinburgh to visit Berwick-upon-Tweed and Alnwick Castle, which has served as a filming backdrop for both the Harry Potter and Downton Abbey series. Alnwick is easily recognizable to Potter fans as the exterior of Hogwarts, and you can visit the interior for some real history, too.

Scottish Highlands and Jacobite Steam Train Tours
Every fan of the Harry Potter films knows the scene showing the Hogwarts Express crossing that high bridge on its way to the wizarding school. The real-life bridge is the Glenfinnan Viaduct in the Scottish Highlands, and visitors can cross it themselves on the Jacobite Steam Train. Take an overnight trip to the Highlands from Edinburgh and ride the train from Fort William to Mallaig.
