ALL ABOARD THE HOG­WARTS EX­PRESS!

Friday - - Inside -

We’ve gone potty over the prospect of the Harry Pot­ter Tour across Scot­land this sum­mer. The lochs and moun­tains of Glen Coe and Glen Ne­vis formed the back­drop for some of the most dra­matic scenes in the wizard films and the tour in­cludes a trip on the Ja­co­bite Steam Train – bet­ter known as the Hog­warts Ex­press – which trav­els through the breath­tak­ing val­leys, to the fa­mous Glen­finnan Viaduct. It cul­mi­nates in the beau­ti­ful city of Ed­in­burgh, from where you can skip over the bor­der to Al­nwick Cas­tle, more pop­u­larly known among Harry Pot­ter fans as Hog­warts. Even bet­ter, Emi­rates Hol­i­days has waved a magic wand and con­jured up a 10 per cent dis­count on all hol­i­day pack­ages if you book and travel by July 31, 2013. It also in­cludes free travel in­sur­ance (ex­cept for travel to the US and Canada) when you book dur­ing the of­fer pe­riod. A seven-day/six-night self-drive Harry Pot­ter Tour starts from Dh5,095 per per­son, but there are many other hol­i­day op­tions to choose from. You can book by call­ing 800 5252; or book in per­son through the fol­low­ing: Emi­rates Hol­i­days Travel Store on Shaikh Zayed Road; Emi­rates Travel Hub, Town Cen­tre, Jumeirah Beach Road; and Emi­rates Tech­nol­ogy Cen­tre.
