a harry potter adventure
Magical adventures of the boy wizard
Your invite has arrived by Owl Post.
Your Harry Potter adventure begins in London as you board the night train heading north to the highlands of Scotland. You’ll spend the next 5 nights immersed in the tales and adventures of Harry Potter and his friends as we take you on a thrilling, once in a liftetime magical tour of Scotland, the birthplace of JK Rowling’s ‘Boy Wizard.’
Depart from Platform 9 3/4 as you head North.
Our train departs London late evening and reaches your destination around 8am the following morning. You’ll be picked up and taken to a nearby helicopter pad for your eagle’s eye view of the Scottish Highlands. You’ll swoop down towards the Hogwarts Express and follow it as it winds its way along the West Highland Line and over the world famous Glenfinnan Viaduct. Your night will be spent in a Scottish Baronial home with entertainment from some of Scotland’s finest wizards.
The Deathly Hallows
After a breakfast of Chocolate frogs and Fizzing Whizzbees, today’s adventure takes us through mystical Rannoch Moor. This is the place where Death Eaters board the Hogwarts Express in the movie The Deathly Hallows. This afternoon we’ll be joined by Hedwig and friends as we get up close and personal with a private Owl experience. Our day will finish at Glencoe, which is not only home to the infamous Glencoe Massacre but also featured in “The Prisoner of Azkaban”.
Loch Shiel, Lochaber,
Loch Shiel is a freshwater lake and is the fourth longest loch in Scotland. The loch can be seen briefly in all the movies but it is most recognized for being the setting of the Triwizard Tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. We’ll spend the day enjoying our own Triwizard Tournament as we compete in some Scottish wizard past-times.
Diagon Alley (Victoria St, Edinburgh)
J.K Rowling lived in Edinburgh whilst writing the Harry Potter books. The beautiful, eccentric Victoria Street is believed to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley. Victoria Street is an eclectic mix of colourful, independent shops selling a host of wonderful wares. Today you’ll have a private tour of the city by a very special guide. You’ll visit the cafe Rowling began writing her novels, see the sites where she got inspiration for some wizarding names and will sleep in the J.K Rowling Suite she stayed in whilst writing The Deathly Hallows and completing her magical adventures of the Boy Wizard.
The Writer’s Museum & a Cauldron Concoctions
Our day starts with a private viewing at the Writers’ museum in Edinburgh. The museum is home to artefacts from many of the greatest writers: Robert Louis Stevenson, Robert Burns & of course, J.K Rowling.
The afternoon will be spent practicing your cauldron skills as we whip up some interesting spells, and potions before heading to the airport (for those who haven’t quite mastered the art of apparating) to catch your muggle transport home.
