Rowling admitted that began writing the "Harry Potter" is not in Scotland

J.K. Rowling amazes fans by revealing the truth about Harry Potter's origins

"The first brick of Hogwarts was placed in a flat in Clapham Junction".

The first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, landed in book stores in 1997, and since then series has gone on to dominate bestseller lists and the box office with its film adaptations.

But now, Rowling has revealed that Edinburgh is not actually the place where the boy who lived lived started writing.

Once fans learned that Rowling had supposedly written some of the series in a cafe in Edinburgh, it became a regular tourist attraction for Potter fans.

Rowling, who is known to drop various unknown bombs and tidbits on the Twitter franchise, explained that the true birth of Harry Potter's "pen on paper" occurred in his apartment.

As for the moment the idea came to her, Rowling revealed that happened on a Manchester train.

"This is the true birthplace of Harry Potter, if you define "birthplace" as the spot where I put pen to paper for the first time.' I was renting a room in a flat over what was then a sports shop".

During an interview with CNN, she admitted that the creation of Hogwarts in particular came to her "by attractive places I saw or visited because it's so far from the truth".


It isn't an exaggeration to say that the seven-book sequence swept up a era of kids, and extra after that, with its depiction of orphaned Harry Potter, who discovers not exclusively that he's a wizard, however that his future is related to the villainous Lord Voldemort.

Quidditch, for Rowling's high flying, bludger smashing game Said It was born in 1991 after a one-night stay at the Bournville Hotel in Manchester. And like Shefali, she also thought that she wouldn't be selected, but as Shefali said that she had nothing to lose, she also went and gave the audition, and to her surprise, she got selected where for the next round she had to audition with Shefali in front of Mike.

She recognized who wrote in a cafe in Rua Santa Catarina, Portugal.

"I never visited this bookshop in Oporto", she states. "Actually this is the most handsome cafe I've ever written".

Rowling has dismissed some other rumors surrounding her impulses for key symbols from the Harry Potter world.

I generally hear Hogwarts was primarily based on one or different of Edinburgh's colleges, however that's 100% false, too. Hogwarts was created long before I clapped eyes on any of them!

"I can't drive", he wrote.

Unfortunately, when it came to spoilers about the work ahead, Dumbledore voiced his best disappointment: "Ouch, earwax".
