Famous Cafe and Restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland where J.K Rowling wrote first Harry Potter book 'Philosopher's stone' is for sale

A Cafe and Restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland where J.K. Rowling wrote the first 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' also famous Harry Potter novels is up for sale again.

According to Scotsman reports, JK Rowling spent hour after hour in the former Nicolson's Cafe as she developed ideas for her first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Mr Ng, owner said "We were thinking of selling to JK Rowling first because we think something should be done to mark the fact she wrote the book here."

He added: "The restaurant is on the open market but I would prefer someone to come in and preserve this place. We are looking for a buyer but it is still early stages."

Ms Rowling turned down the offer.

He added: "I'm sure a museum would boost tourism. It is quite a renowned place. We do not advertise the JK Rowling connection that much, but it still attracts so much attention. We get many tourists from Japan and America."
