A convention to celebrate global cooperation and diversity in wizarding communities worldwide. This is the first such gathering and its focus is on sharing information, bringing awareness to foreign and highly secretive forms of magic. As witches and wizards come together from every corner of Earth, what surprises await the attendees?
"Diagon Alley, a long cobbled street where is to be found a strange and exciting assortment of shops and restaurants. It is unquestionably the hub of commerce in the British wizarding world, with virtually every wizarding business stationed there. Consequently, the demand for space here is steep, and rent costs loads of galleons."
Just around the corner from Diagon Alley lies a dark, twisting alleyway devoted to the Dark Arts: Knockturn Alley. The wares sold their a bit dodgy, but the wizards hanging around behave fairly suspiciously as well. From the shops and the street vendors one can purchase, among other things, shrunken heads, poisonous candles, human-looking fingernails, and Flesh-Eating Slug Repellent.
The Leaky Cauldron is described as "dark and shabby" inside, though it's also known for being a "welcoming" place. The main room on the ground floor has a bar and quite a few tables, and down the narrow hall from here is a private parlor, also with a fireplace.From the ground floor, a "handsome wooden staircase" leads up to the guest rooms.
The Ministry of Magic is the governmental authority for the Wizarding world in Britain. The basic mission of the Ministry is to keep the Muggles from finding out about an entire culture of magical folk. It's a huge, complicated, and inefficient bureaucracy, just like most governmental organizations.
Founded in late 1500s or early 1600s by Mungo Bonham, St. Mungo's Hospital is the primary wizarding hospital in Britain. Located in an abandoned department store in London, the hospital's Healers treat wizards for all sorts of magic-related illnesses and injuries, and in extreme circumstances has been known to treat muggles as well.
The newspaper of the Wizarding World is called The Daily Prophet. The current editor is Barnabas Cuffe. It has offices in Diagon Alley and publishes an edition every morning. Evening editions are also printed, and these can apparently be delivered very quickly after an important story breaks.
As Hogsmeade is located just down the road from Hogwarts, the school and the village have always shared a special relationship. On select Saturdays throughout the school year the village is filled with Hogwarts students, who are allowed to visit beginning in their third year; some of the Hogwarts teachers, including Hagrid and Dumbledore, visit more frequently.
The dungeon passages and rooms under the castle have stone walls and are lit by torches.Potions classes are held in a dungeon classroom, the classroom is quite cold, especially in the winter, when students can see their breath. Also, the Hogwarts kitchens are located directly below the Great Hall and are just the same size.The kitchens are staffed by over a hundred house-elves.
There are many used and unused classrooms throughout Hogwarts castle. Some classrooms are dedicated to certain professors (i.e. Potions will always be held in the dungeons). Dumbledore arranged for this room to look like the middle of a forest clearing; Firenze, who couldn't easily negotiate the stairs, taught Divination in this room. He could lower the lights and display a starry sky with a wave of his hand.
Vast chamber with an enchanted ceiling that mirrors the sky outside. Four long tables for the four houses. Closest to the doors from the Entrance Hall is Slytherin, then Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and next to the far wall, Gryffindor. The teachers sit at the High Table, a table on a raised platform at the front of the room.
Madam Pomfrey will cure anyone from anything, whether it be a simple cold, or a lost limb. While she is exceedingly nice, be sure to stay out of her way while visiting or she'll kick you out in no time.
There were a hundred and forty-two staircases at Hogwarts: wide, sweeping ones; narrow, rickety ones; some that led somewhere different on a Friday; some with a vanishing step halfway up that you had to remember to jump 1. Then there were doors that wouldn't open unless you asked politely, or tickled them in exactly the right place 2, and doors that weren't really doors at all, but solid walls just pretending. It was also very hard to remember where anything was, because it all seemed to move around a lot. The people in the portraits kept going to visit each other, and coats of armor can walk.
The Hogwarts library contains tens of thousands of books on thousands of shelves.Included in its many sections is an Invisibility Section, a section with information about dragons, and a Restricted Section at the back, set off with a rope. A signed note from a teacher is required to peruse that section of the library; it contains books of Dark Magic only used by older students studying advanced Defence Against the Dark Arts.The library closes at 8 pm. The library books have various spells on them to prevent students from defacing or stealing them.
The Room of Requirement is a magical room which can only be discovered by someone who is in need. It is called the Come and Go Room by the house-elves of Hogwarts. The Room is located on the seventh floor, opposite a tapestry showing Barnabas the Barmy trying to teach trolls to dance the ballet. To make the Room appear, a person has to walk past the section of blank wall three times concentrating hard on what is needed.
Inside, the bathroom's walls, floor, and single sunken bathtub are all made of white marble, lit softly by a candle-filled chandelier that impressed Harry on his first visit. The rectangular tub is the size and depth of a swimming pool, and even has a diving board, but unlike an ordinary pool the tub is lined with about a hundred taps, each with a differently coloured jewel set into the handle. Each tap automatically releases not only water, but bubble bath (a different kind of bubble bath for each colour-coded handle). A pile of fluffy white towels are kept in one corner.
Common rooms are places in the castle were students and professors can relax when they aren't running around trying to learn all they can while at Hogwarts. Each house has their own common rooms, Ravenclaw and Gryffindor are located in the towers, while Hufflepuff and Slytherin are in the dungeons.
