The Potter Trail ?

Is this worth doing with a teenager?

    All depends how interested the teenager is! What sights do you want to take in? Make sure you book the Jacobite (Hogwarts Express) well in advance as it is very popular. It is also a good tip to try and avoid school holidays as the sights / attractions will be very busy.
    Best regards

    We have just created a Harry Potter itinerary which might be of interest. 

    If you go to the Elephant House, make sure you visit the loo (I won't give away why).

    There is a walking tour called The Potter Trail in Edinburgh, which includes a visit to the Greyfriars Kirkyard. It currently runs at weekend but is more frequent during the summer. It leaves at 3pm from the Greyfriars Bobby statue (near the National Museum of Scotland). It's free but obviously you can tip  your tour guide. 
    I did this in January and really enjoyed it, there were several teenagers on the tour who seemed to enjoy it too.
