Do you have a nostalgic craving for the wizarding world and a fast advancing wedding date? We’ve found the perfect solution for your hen do: a Harry Potter house, totally HP themed, available to hire in the heart of Edinburgh.
The apartment has gorgeous wood and brick finishes throughout and sleeps up to six. With a Gryffindor themed lounge and master bedroom and a Hogwarts Express themed second bedroom, you can live your childhood fantasies before tying the knot with your dream guy or girl.
It definitely doesn’t hurt that it’s located in the beautifully historical and cosmopolitan Edinburgh. There are fantastic activities available for every bride and her friends from clubbing to theatre to visiting the stunning Edinburgh Castle. An extremely culture-rich city, Edinburgh offers the perfect combination of going out, sophistication and sight-seeing.
With Edinburgh being the place where JK Rowling began writing her hit novels, the city is full of shops and activities to continue the Harry Potter experience, such as The Elephant House Café where JK Rowling began writing ‘The Philosopher’s Stone’ and Victoria Street which was the inspiration for Diagon Alley.
The apartment is full of exceptional statement pieces, including a desk and a mirror which belonged to JK Rowling herself. The owner and creator of Canongate Luxury Apartment, Yue Gao, searched far and wide to create the best possible experience, making you feel so at home that the Sorting Hat might have put you there.
With fantastically preserved stone walls dating from 1700, Yue’s aim was to create a loving tribute to the influential series that was a part of so many childhoods, whilst providing a fun experience for clients. Despite the incredible history of the gorgeous listed building, it includes facilities that would wow Arthur Weasley, such as high speed WiFi, a flat screen TV and an Xbox One.
The Harry Potter house has an 100% five star guest rating and is available from £154, depending on the time of year. If you’re struggling over how to celebrate your upcoming wedding with your besties, look no further. The Canongate Luxury Apartment provides a whimsical experience without losing its high standards of comfort and service. Perfect for any Harry Potter-obsessed bride or groom-to-be, we love this super fun way to see off your single days!
If you love this Harry Potter house and want it for your hen do, you’ll love this Harry Potter ring box too.
