Full description
The success of Harry Potter put Edinburgh on the map. Indeed JK Rowling moved to Edinburgh in the 90s with a few chapters of Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone in hand, but it is in Edinburgh that her novels evolved. Discover the city that saw the wizarding world of Harry Potter come to light, as you follow the footsteps of JK Rowling during a guided tour of Edinburgh in French. You will not only learn anecdotes about Harry Potter, but also the life of the author whilst visiting little hidden corners of Edinburgh that strongly resemble the world imagined by JK Rowling. With your passionate French tour guide, the tour will take you to the Old Town where the author spent a lot of time in cafes, walking in the local graveyard, and traversing the narrow winding cobbled streets to seek inspiration from objects and the surrounding atmosphere. You will find out the origins and symbolism of some characters' names, and even see the hand prints of JK Rowling.
