Dream Trip: Harry Potter-possessed in the UK

Dad’s dream:  

My 2 sons are BIG Harry Potter fans.   What can we set up for them when our family travels to Great Britain? 
 

Dad, what about this….

HARRY POTTER IN EDINBURGH
There’s a town guide in Edinburgh who, when he’s not escorting you to his favorite Potter spots, is the captain of the local Muggle Quiddich Team.


Sit with him in the Elephant House cafe and hear stories of JK Rowling creation of her first Harry book.  Peer into Greyfriar’s Bobby Cemetery where the tombstones’ names came to life as beloved Potter characters.

HARRY POTTER IN LONDON
In London, there’s a Harry Potter Film Locations walk organized by London Walks that incorporates Diagon Alley, some favorite Leaky Cauldron spots and – yes! — Platform 9 3/4.

Harry Potter: “Can we find all this in London?”
Hagrid: “If yeh know where to go.”

HARRY POTTER AT OXFORD
Then ride up to Oxford for more scenes you’ll find plucked right out of your favorite Harry Potter films.
Did you know?  You can actually sleep in a dorm room at Oxford!

There are great views overlooking the Quad, and the highlight is sure to be breakfast the next morning in the historic Grand Dining Hall of Keble College.

Would you love to hire me, to custom-design a trip for you and your family? 
to explore the possibilities!
