What you can expect

Come with me if you would like to see where the J.K Rowling got her inspiration for the Harry Potter series.

Only a few people know that J. K. Rowling was married to a Portuguese man and lived in Porto where a number of things inspired her that ended up featuring in her Harry Potter books.

I'll start with a very interesting place: The Uniform Shop.
The black long gowns you read about in the books and see in the film were inspired by the real life uniforms of students in Porto.

There are special rules on how to wear your uniform and I can't wait to tell you all about them. I'll be proudly wearing my own uniform as well to fit into the theme of the Harry Potter style.

I'll also have a special surprise at the end of the tour related to this!

Later we will stop at the oldest cafe of Porto, a little bit fancier today and full curious Porto visitors. The majestic structure of the building will also remind you of Harry Potter. After our coffee stop, we'll continue to the famous Livraria Lello, the beautiful bookstore where the idea of the moving stairs was born.

Join me on a fantastic Harry Potter trip, so few people know you can see the inspiration J.K Rowling had all over the city! I'm flexible about our itinerary, so let me know if you want to see something else as well.

See you soon!
