About this trip

Some of the most beautiful and majestic scenes in the Harry Potter series were captured in Scotland. After all, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry itself is buried somewhere deep in the Scottish Highlands! The magical city of Edinburgh will expose enchanting legends that only a wizard will be able to discern! 


Come with Spooky Riley and our team of mystical adventure seekers to find these magical places! Spooky will assure we take you to all the iconic historical spots and filming locations that gave us the charming setting for Harry Potter's stories.  Imagine following in the footsteps of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as you experience the wonders of our magical land.


We have blended iconic wizardry experiences that will certainly take you on a bewitching fantasy ride! But did you know that many of these spots are drenched with phantoms and other magical creatures? These certainly will add a whimsical spark into our explorations! Never forget that Spooky Riley, and her traveling vagabonds, want to experience Harry Potter's Scotland with a twisted phantasmic charm! 


Accompanying us will be Neil Storey, fitting the role quite properly as our Historic Tour Guide! There is no better chap in all of the UK to bring to life the chronicles of centuries that help create the beautiful landmarks of England and Scotland.  His sharply clever witt and style will keep us engaged with the legendary traditions of the Brittish Isles. This will be an adventure you will not forget soon!


We will start our adventure in England, where the grand magnificence of Alnwick Castle will create illusions of Potter's Chamber of Secrets! We will then proceed to Edinburgh, so we can retrace the steps of the her medieval streets which J. K. Rowling ventured on as she penned her spellbinding books. Then off to the Highlands we will go, where your imagination will be enchanted with the sceneries that not even a book or film could ever capture! No fantasy tour of Scotland is complete without visiting her fairies, so certainly our journey through Stirling will be very proper! And did we mention ... enchanting (haunted) Castles? Oh yes ... but only if you dare to sleep in a couple of those! 


So, let's grab our broomsticks and fly off on a tour of Harry Potter's Scotland where we will capture her mysteries, legends, and wizardly magic!

Itinerary

DAY 1: Aug. 9, 2023
Welcome to the UK!

Mysterious Adventures Tours will greet you upon your arrival to the Newcastle International Airport. From here we will accommodate you into your room where we will stay while in England, the Lumley Castle (or of the like). Take a quick nap and freshen up, as you shrug off that jet lag.  
 

Later in the evening, you will escort you to the awe-inspiring Durham Cathedral, that stands proudly. After all, this was one of the filming locations for Harry Potter's Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 2001.


Let's welcome one with a dinner at the Undercroft Restaurant, which is part of the Catedral. We want to keep you in that Potter Spirit, after all. Here you will meet your fellow travelers and receive some gifts and information to make your adventure more accommodating and pleasurable. 


PLEASE NOTE: Itineraries are subject to change depending on availability or weather & travel conditions.

Each trip I take with Mysterious Adventures gets better and better! I don't know if I can truly encompass the Daughters of Hecate's Witches and Phantoms of Scotland trip was with just a few words, but I would say: spectacular (spooktacular?), magical, surprising! Not to mention the new friends made along the way. Maria has outdone herself again. From the preparation meetings beforehand, to the surprises we had during the trip, to the people we met - you name it, she did it A+. I cannot wait to book my next trip! Tracy M.

I had a phenomenal time touring Wales and all its ruins, castles, pubs and amazing history! Our tour was full of places to see everyday along with a great group to explore with. The ghost hunting was so fun too. The people of Wales were so nice which added to our enjoyment. Thank you Brian J. Cano and Mysterious Tours for this wonderful opportunity. I can’t wait to go back!
