Edinburgh's Authors for Kids

Context Travel

Select Option


On this two hour tour, we dive into Edinburgh’s most famous authors, from Robert Burns to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to, yes, J.K. Rowling. We’ll visit the Writers’ Museum, learning about the legacy of the city’s most famous authors (and maybe don a 19th century outfit in the process) before visiting some of the most important sites in the city for the creation of the famous Harry Potter series; and perhaps spend some time imaging we are Harry, Ron and Hermione as we explore old town Edinburgh.
