The Potter Trail is a fantastic educational experience!
Are you a teacher currently reading Harry Potter with your class? Maybe you are a leader of a language school group looking to improve your group's English skills? Or perhaps even an after school club just looking for a fun excursion? The Potter Trail has experience with hundreds of school and educational groups, and our guides are highly skilled at adapting the tour content to the age range or language ability of your group.
As of August 9th all Covid restrictions on our tours have been removed. Face coverings will no longer be required on our tours, although you are of course still welcome to wear one if you like!
We ask you to bring something you can use as a wand. This can be anything roughly wand-shaped - pens, pencils and umbrellas all welcome!
We offer discounts for educational groups compared to our regular private tours. Click BOOK NOW below to see details of pricing and available times. If you are unsure whether you qualify as an educational group please contact our Head Wizard Richard on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can fit perfectly into your curriculum!
The Potter Trail meets many of the educational outcomes outlined in the Curriculum for Excellence. As a Social Studies excursion we can help your class to:
- Develop their understanding of the history, culture and heritage of Scotland
- Explore and evaluate different types of sources and evidence
- Learn how to locate, explore and link features and places locally and further afield
As well as have a lot of fun at the same time!
Our tours start at the statue of Greyfriars Bobby, at the junction of George IV Bridge and Candlemaker Row, and end on Victoria Terrace, the raised section of Victoria Street.
The tour will last between 75 and 90 minutes depending on how busy the city is.
