Edinburgh Edinburgh Edinburgh

Scotland’s capital is less daunting than London but equally dynamic.

Tourists typically flock to the Royal Mile (a stone road that delivers kilts and street art with old-timey flair), so take your time exploring the Edinburgh Castle and University of Edinburgh campus. If you high-key feel like you’re at Hogwarts, you’re not wrong.

J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone from the back room of The Elephant House, a cafe tucked inside Edinburgh’s Old Town. Rowling has said that whenever she got stuck, she drew inspiration from the magical city around her.

Popular Attractions: Arthur’s Seat, Greyfriars Kirkyard & Camera Obscura.
