Attention: all Harry Potter fans! You don't have to go to a theme park to immerse yourself in the world of your favourite series. There's an apartment you can rent in Edinburgh, Scotland that will blow the mind of any hardcore Harry Potter fan. J.K. Rowling wrote her first Harry Potter book here in Scotland and was inspired by the magical setting.
This apartment is located on Westbow Alley—the street that inspired Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter series! The apartment is also super close to Edinburgh Castle so you're right in the centre of cool things to see in the city. You won't find a bunch of cheap harry potter decorations or a kid-focused space. The apartment's theme is subtle with all the charm of the Harry Potter world with none of the tacky theme-park mess.
From the four poster bed and the antique books to the old truck that doubles as a coffee table—the whole place has a total Hogwarts vibe that you're going to love. The apartment is for rent on Airbnb Plus and it's shockingly affordable at $148 per night.
You can add even more magic to your Harry Potter inspired vacation by going on a Harry Potter walking tour through Edinburgh and see the sights that sparked J.K. Rowling's imagination. You'll see the cafe where she wrote The Philosopher's Stone and then see all sorts of magical and mystical places that inspired the books. Plus, there's even a Harry Potter trivia element to the tour to make fans feel extra special!
If you're curious to book the Harry Potter inspired apartment or walking tour, you can check them out on Airbnb. Flights from Toronto to Edinburgh have been super cheap lately for less than $400. Keep an eye out on flight deals and put a trip Scotland on your bucket list!
