The Elephant House

The Elephant House

Perched on George IV Bridge alongside two of Edinburgh’s most beautiful libraries is The Elephant House café. Although packed with ornaments, pictures and trinkets depicting elephants of all kinds, it’s better known as a place JK Rowling often sat as she wrote Harry Potter.

If you’re a true blue elephant fan, however, this is still the place to come to, as elephants abound, as cheerful and round as the cafe’s view of Edinburgh Castle.
