What else is on at Imagine Experiences London & Edinburgh?

Enter ancient caves, become a wizard and create your very own potion!

Every wizard must know the cornerstones of magic: spell casting, runecraft, and of course, potions.

What to expect on your potion making journey:

  • 1 Mini escape game
  • 6 exciting experiments
  • Tour guides with unrivalled knowledge & expertise!

To perfect your knowledge of alchemy, join the candlelit Edinburgh School of Magic in an ancient cave hidden right behind St Giles cathedral and lost for centuries after the Great Edinburgh Fire.

During this interactive workshop, you will brew your own potion, guided by a Potion Master. However, it is not as easy as starting a fire under your cauldron: you’ll face puzzles and challenges to test your mettle as a wizard.

Vanquish the escape game, gather all the ingredients, and craft exciting potions to graduate from the School of Magic.

Create monstrous 1m long slimes, discover colour-changing and smoking ingredients, and enjoy many other experiments. At the end of the activity, take away your own potion to continue the adventure at home!

Let the magic begin!

You'll meet at the workshop; which is located in an ancient cave hidden behind St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. Tap 3 times the stone at the corner of the Cathedral to enter and let the magic begin!
