Harry Potter found at Edinburgh’s finest address
If you’re heading to Edinburgh’s Waverley Station and you stare up at the magnificent building on the south side of Princes Street and you’re fastidious about punctuality, take a deep breath. The looming clock tower is wrong. Ever since 1902, the clock on what was once known as the North British Station Hotel was set three minutes fast so passing travellers wouldn’t miss their trains. There is one exception. Every year on Hogmanay for the city’s New Year celebrations, the clock is set to the right time. This consideration for travellers continues inside the magnificent building now known as the Balmoral Hotel and run by Rocco Forte Hotels.
