You Can Now Rent A Harry Potter-Themed Apartment
Ever wanted to stay at Hogwarts? Now is your chance.
Every Potterhead who’s trekked to Edinburgh to visit “Diagon Alley” and the pubs where J.K. Rowling scribed her famous series now has one more thing to add to their bucket lists: a Harry Potter-themed apartment up for rent.
Created by super-fan Yue Gao, Canongate Luxury Apartment overlooks Edinburgh’s picturesque Royal Mile, and is available to rent year round.
Step into the luxury apartment, and you’ll immediately feel like you’re at Hogwarts. The master bedroom resembles a Gryffindor dormitory room and includes a four-poster bed topped with the illusion of floating candles, gilded mirrors and old books.
The second double bedroom is decked out to look just like a carriage from the Hogwarts express, while the living area is designed to look like the Gryffindor common room. The best part? The apartment even has special pieces that belonged to J.K. Rowling herself.
“There is a desk which actually belonged to J.K. Rowling,” Gao told The Metro. “I managed to acquire it as the furniture restorer’s son went to the same school and was in the same class as J.K. Rowling’s daughter.” Gao added the mirror frame in the apartment also belonged to Rowling.
If you would also love to relax and play some XBox, you’re in luck. The flat includes digital TV’s, a PS4, an Xbox 1 and WiFi. Score.
Now that you’re scrambling to book a flight to Edinburgh, nightly rates are £150 (just over $200 USD). But can you really put a price on the Hogwarts experience?
