We had a great day with Monique learning a bit more about Edinburgh and the influence the city had on JK Rowling and on the Harry Potter books. A shame about the rain but it didn’t stop us ravenclaw’s from taking home the house cup!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
