The Elephant House

The cafe where Harry Potter was ‘invented’ is a mecca for fans from around the world. The dream table is the one stuffed with fan letters. And while we’re not in the habit of recommending a trip to the toilet, it’s worth it for the quotes and graffiti on the walls.

Grown-ups aren’t excluded – Ian Rankin, author of the Rebus novels, and Alexander McCall-Smith, of The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency fame have both been known to enjoy the coffees there too.
