Fascinating Fact

Edinburgh is a city that has inspired Harry Potter. The author J.K. Rowling, who was born in 1965, spent much of her childhood in the city and it has been the setting for many of the novels’ scenes.

JK Rowling’s imagination was first captured by Victoria Street in Edinburgh, where she lived with her young daughter Jessica. Inspired by the attractive Georgian buildings, she later used this location as the inspiration for Diagon Alley in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. If any of your hens are Harry Potter fans, Victoria Street is a must-see.
