Reviews of Besides The William Chambers Monument in Edinburgh

Besides The William Chambers Monument venue information

Take a tour and dive deep into Rowling's history. Learn to use failure as a springboard, be inspired, stay committed and conquer the world. Discover the sights that inspired her and the cafes which fueled her. Experience how, through her adopted daughter, Edina once more left footprints upon the world.

This 2 hour walking tour includes:

Sorting into houses
the location where JK finished writing the Deathly Hallows
visit Edinburgh university and talk about what Rowling studied
the location where she received her honorary degree
The inspiration for Dementors
2 of the cafes where she wrote the books
The graves of he who shall not be named and professor McGonagall.
Possibly the graves of inspiring Rufus Scrimgeour, Mad Eye Moodie, James Potter and Wormtail, providing the grass is firm.
Edinburgh's 'Diagon Alley'
The cave where Eddie Redmayne, Fantastic Beast's Newt Scamander, did his first general public performance
Public executions in Edinburgh's Grassmarket with connections to a nearly headless ghost.
The writer's museum
We'll see the heart of Midlothian and chat about JK Rowling's second romance.
JK Rowling's hand prints, the 'Edinburgh Award'.

The spine of the tour is JK Rowling's rags to riches story, but we'll chat about various Fantastic Beasts, a troublesome poltergeist, Dragons, fatal screaming plants, the origin of Dementors and where a certain half giant went to university with a pink umbrella*.

*He may not have had a pink umbrella at that time.
