Edinburgh's Victoria Street is a historical gem overflowing with old-world charm and character. It also happens to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter novels. Walk this street and you'll know why!

There's lots of great shops (we love Walker Slater) and Harry Potter fans will go mad for the official merchandise store which is worth visiting alone!

Some history:

Built in the 19th century, this cobblestone curving ribbon of colorful buildings was designed by renowned architect Thomas Hamilton and inspired by Flemish architecture. Offering visitors an array of independent shops, breathtaking architecture, wizardly history, and quirky snakes and ladders boardwalk games- this cobblestone lane provides endless of fun for all ages!
