  • Style: Family Experiences
  • Description: Castles, crown jewels and Harry Potter – this classic family experience introduces the history, mystery and magic of England, Wales and Scotland. It's Insider moments like… stepping inside Harry Potter's red telephone box, butterflies fluttering in your tummy as you imagine the descent into the Ministry of Magic. It's discovering Platform 9 ¾ in search for the Hogwart's Express with your Local Expert. It's waking up as a guest in Ruthin Castle, just as kings and queens have done for hundreds of years. And it's the tingling of goose bumps on your skin as you listen to the tales of bravery and treason at Edinburgh Castle, home of royalty, rebellion and the Stone of Destiny.
