I'm a Harry Potter fan, I admit it, and I've visited Harry Potter world in Orlando. Because of that I'm often asked questions about Harry Potter related sights in Scotland as it is where I live after all. So I thought I would dig into the ol’ tinternet and see what I could find. First up I really wanted to see what there was in Edinburgh. After hunting around for a while I came across this website offering free Harry walking tours, and thought this was be perfect, save me trying to find them on my own.
The tour started at 5 o’clock outside Greyfriers Bobby and led us first into Greyfriers Graveyard where she stopped and explained a bit about the tour and JK Rowling and things, we then walked around and she pointed out some gravestones which the author had used as inspiration for characters. The guide was fantastic, very knowledgable, explaining not only the relevance to the novels but also the history of the real person too. We even got to see the real Tom Riddle gravestone!
