This is one of our student's favourite trips and we're so excited that Lundgren Tours are back with their fantastic Edinburgh day trip!

Hold on to your broomsticks as we venture North to provide you with an amazing themed day trip experience of Edinburgh. If you love Harry Potter then this trip is definitely for you. JK Rowling was inspired by so many locations and experiences in Edinburgh that resulted in the creation of many of the characters and places in the Harry Potter books. Come on a journey as we learn about how JK Rowling’s life unfolds and is quite simply the real Harry Potter story. That being said, even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan, you will still enjoy many of the interesting stories on this tour. Learn how the Royal Mile was formed or where we get expressions such as ‘tripping the alarm’ and ‘shit-faced’. Find out about influential and interesting people in history such as Walter Scott, John Knox and Crazy Jenny. And of course it wouldn’t be a tour of Edinburgh if you didn’t learn about the legendary Greyfriars Bobby. Finally we’ll have some free time to check out some cool attractions, shops and eateries. Camera Obscura, The National Museum of Scotland and Museum Context (best Harry Potter Shop) are some of my favourites! Make sure you bring your walking shoes, cameras and of course plenty of magic. We’ll show you everything great about Edinburgh so that you can go back and visit your favourite spots during your hours of free time!
