One of the only pure wizarding villages, and the only one in Britain, Hogsmeade is very close to Hogwarts. The Hogwarts Express arrives at Hogsmeade Station each fall, and it's the place that the Hogwarts students visit three times a year.

If you post in OLDE DIAGON ALLEY, you will be fine.


Diagon Alley is the place to go to get school supplies. From Ollivanders to Madam Malkins, it's the number one shopping place for Hogwarts students. If they don't sell it somewhere along here...well, it's probably illegal.

Knockturn Alley isn't a good place to be seen shopping. It is a natural place for dark wizards. Legality is no objection for the merchandise here, but the folks aren't too friendly.
