Map of Hogsmeade

Dervish & Banges
magical equipment

Shop that sells and repairs "magical instruments and stuff," according to Ron, including Sneakoscopes. It is located near the end of High Street.

Gladrags Wizardwear

Clothier, with additional shops in London and Paris. Harry visited the shop in 1995, to pick out the craziest socks he could find as a present for Dobby.

The Hog's Head

A rather shady pub managed by Aberforth Dumbledore

Hogsmeade Station
rail station

A "tiny, dark platform" where the Hogwarts Express ends its journey north from Platform Nine-And-Three-Quarters. The station is located near the lake, and from there a road extends around the lake to Hogwarts Castle. The station is actually quite a distance from the town itself, being on the opposite side of the Hogwarts grounds

Honeydukes Sweetshop

A sweetshop, owned by Ambrosius Flume and his wife, which is filled with "shelves upon shelves of the most succulent-looking sweets imaginable". In addition to the standard wizarding candy that is sold there, the owners also make their own fudge and chocolate. For obvious reasons, the shop is quite a popular destination for Hogwarts students when visiting Hogsmeade on the weekends.

Down in the cellar of the shop, amidst the boxes and wooden crates and known to only a select few people, is a trap door in the dusty floor - which opens to reveal a secret passageway to Hogwarts.

Madam Puddifoot's
tea shop

A small, cramped tea shop with decor on the tacky side of frilly (such as floating golden cherubs throwing pink confetti), located just off High Street. The only Hogwarts students who seem to patronize the place are trysting couples. Cho Chang suggests it for her Valentine's Day date with Harry; somehow, he never seems to develop a desire to return.

Post Office

The only wizarding post office we ever hear of, where at least three hundred owls, from Great Grays to tiny Scops ("Local Deliveries Only"), wait to carry messages. They sit on shelves that are color-coded, depending on how fast you want your letter to get to its destination. It is also referred to as an "owl office".

Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop
quills & stationary

Located on the High Street; Hermione bought a black-and-gold pheasant-feather quill there in October 1995.

The Shrieking Shack
abandoned building

Falsely rumored to be "the most haunted building in Britain," the Shrieking Shack is a favorite stop on any Hogsmeade visit. However, the wails that were once heard emanating from this creepy building were not in fact ghosts, but rather Remus Lupin transformed into a werewolf. The shack, in fact, was built when he came to Hogwarts, allowing him to transform a safe distance away from the other students. The shack cannot be broken into from the outside, though Fred and George have tried; it must be entered instead through a secret passageway, the mouth of which lies under the Whomping Willow. It was in this building that Harry first met and learned the identity of Sirius Black, and also where he later watched Voldemort kill Severus Snape.

The Three Broomsticks

A well-known inn and a frequent haunt of Hogwarts students. It's warm and comfortable, is packed every time Harry goes in, and is a great spot to drink butterbeer, although they also serve firewhisky, gillywater, mulled mead, red currant rum, and even cherry syrup and soda with ice and an umbrella. The owner of the bar is Madam Rosmerta, who Ron enjoys watching, at least when she's not under an Imperius Curse.

Zonko's Joke Shop
joke items

Zonko's is a favourite place for Hogwarts students to shop. They carry "jokes and tricks to fulfill even Fred's and George's wildest dreams," including Dungbombs, Hiccup Sweets, Frog Spawn Soap, and Nose-Biting Teacups. During the dark time of 1996 and 1997, Zonko's closed and was boarded up. Fred and George visited Hogsmeade with an eye toward possibly buying the premises and turning it into a Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, though at least right away, this didn't happen.

Map of Diagon Alley

potion ingredients

The Apothecary is a fascinating shop crammed with all sorts of interesting things. There are barrels of slimy stuff lined up on the floor and jars of all sorts of powders, herbs, and the like along the walls. Bundles of feathers, fangs, and claws hang from the ceiling. The whole place smells very bad, a mixture of bad eggs and rotten cabbage. The name of this shop in the films is Slug & Jiggers Apothecary.


When Harry spent several weeks in Diagon Alley before his third year, he ate his meals (except for breakfast) at these assorted cafes. The cafes had "brightly colored umbrellas" over their tables outside, which were Harry's preferred seats. While sitting here, he liked listening to the shoppers around him discussing their purchases or the escape of Sirius Black.

cauldron shop

This shop, the closest one to the entrance from the alley behind the Leaky Cauldron, sells all sorts of cauldrons. Outside the shop, a stack of them shines in the sun, under a sign that reads:

All sizes
Copper, Brass, Pewter, Silver

Daily Prophet offices
newspaper publisher

The headquarters of the Daily Prophet are located in Diagon Alley, as the newspaper instructs that letters to the editor should be sent here by owl.

Dark Arts establishments
dark items

In 1998, with Voldemort fully in charge of the Ministry of Magic, a number of Diagon Alley shops closed, replaced by these nondescript shops devoted to the Dark Arts. Of course, even at other times, such shops exist just around the corner in Knockturn Alley, too.

Eeylops Owl Emporium
owls & related merchandise (i.e. owl treats)

A dimly lit shop which, according to the sign, sells tawny, screech, barn, brown, and snowy owls. Hagrid bought Hedwig here for Harry's eleventh birthday on July 31, 1991. Harry also returned later to buy owl nuts - a favorite treat of Hedwig's.

Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour
ice cream

An ice cream parlor with outdoor tables, where Florean Fortescue served Harry free ice cream sundaes and offered advice about medieval witchcraft for a report he was writing. The shop was boarded up after Florean disappeared mysteriously in 1996.

Flourish & Blotts

A large wizarding bookshop filled with shelves stacked to the ceiling, Flourish & Blotts is the primary - and perhaps only - supplier of textbooks for Hogwarts, though of course that's far from all they sell. The shop holds occasional book-signings, such as when Gilderoy Lockhart stopped by in 1992, and sells books via owl in addition to books purchased in-store. They also take advance orders for books that are in high demand, such as The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore.

In addition to the store's manager, who at times helps customers himself, the store also employs an assistant manager (paid 42 Galleons a month) and an assistant. The job is not altogether easy, as wizarding books might attempt to bite or simply be completely invisible, and fights - like the scuffle between Arthur Weasley and Lucius Malfoy that sent books raining down on everyone's heads - are apparently commonplace enough that a classified posting for a new assistant manager requires that he or she be "good at breaking up fights".

Gambol & Japes
joke items

This shop, a favorite of Fred and George, sells a wide variety of tricks and practical joke items. The twins bought Dr. Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start, No-Heat Fireworks here in 1992, though of course four years later they were a direct competitor with their own joke shop, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, just down the road.

Gringotts Wizarding Bank

A large white marble building and Diagon Alley fixture, staffed by goblins

junk shop
secondhand items

Full of broken wands, lopsided scales, etc., and a thin little book called Prefects Who Gained Power which caught Percy's eye.

Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions

Though far from the only wizarding clothier around, Madam Malkin's seems to be the best, as it is the place where most Hogwarts students purchase their robes. Madam Malkin herself is a friendly, squat witch, though she seems a bit out of touch at times and got flustered when Draco Malfoy confronted Harry in her shop.

Madam Malkin's is located next door to Flourish & Blotts, and in addition to selling Hogwarts school robes, they also sell robes which are "spangled, self-ironing, beautifying, slimming, fattening, lengthening," and "temperature-adjusting" and they carry robes made by Whopperwear "for the outsize witch or wizard." A later advertisement states that every robe sold at the store is "self-ironing and repairing" as well.

Madam Primpernelle's Beautifying Potions
beautifying potions

A company that helps witches remove "warts and worse," and that recently advertised for Junior Potion mixer in the Daily Prophet. Madam Primpernelle's is located at 275, Diagon Alley.

Magical Menagerie
pets & related items

A very crowded pet store, noisy with the sounds of all the animals, where Hermione bought Crookshanks. The proprietor is a witch who wears heavy black spectacles. She offers advice and sells things like rat tonic. Other creatures for sale included:

* enormous purple toads
* gigantic tortoise with jewel-encrusted shell (probably a Fire-Crab)
* poisonous orange snails (Streelers?)
* a fat white rabbit that changed into a top hat and back
* cats of every color
* noisy cage of ravens
* custard-colored furballs (probably Puffskeins)
* sleek, black rats, rather more intelligent than normal rats

Obscurus Books

Located at 18a Diagon Alley, and the publishers of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.


"Makers of Fine Wands since 382 B.C," Ollivander's is a narrow and shabby little shop with a window display consisting of a single wand resting on a faded purple cushion. Inside the walls are lined floor to ceiling with thousands of narrow boxes, which Mr. Ollivander chooses from when trying to find a wand to match each customer. Ollivander's closed in 1996 when Ollivander was kidnapped by Voldemort; it is unknown whether he re-opened the shop following Voldemort's defeat two years later.

Quality Quidditch Supplies Quality Quidditch Supplies
brooms & other Quidditch-related items

Harry Potter's favorite shop in Diagon Alley is Quality Quidditch Supplies. He visited it often when he stayed for three weeks at the Leaky Cauldron, since that summer the new Firebolt racing broom had been introduced and the shop had one on display. Quality Quidditch Supplies also once displayed a full set of Chudley Cannons robes in the front window.

second hand robe shop

Mrs. Weasley took Ginny there to buy robes for her first year at Hogwarts; this is also likely the place where she purchased Ron's dress robes for the Yule Ball.

stationery store
writing supplies

Next door to Quality Quidditch Supplies, this store sells ink, quills, and parchment. The name of one such shop in Diagon Alley is Scribbulus Everchanging Inks.

street peddlers
misc. items, mostly anti-Dark

There have always been street peddlers on Diagon Alley, and shoppers have always had reason to be wary of them (such as when "Honest Willy Wagstaff" managed to sell substandard wands and loose-bottomed cauldrons a few years back. However, once Voldemort returned, wizards looking to capitalize on the public fear managed to sell even sketchier items, from Metamorph-medals that simply made the purchaser turn orange or sprout tentacles.

Mundungus Fletcher tried to set up a cart in Diagon Alley in 1997, to sell items he'd stolen from number twelve, Grimmauld Place. However, he didn't have much luck in doing so, as one of his first prospective customers was Dolores Umbridge, who got him in trouble for not possessing a license and then stole Slytherin's locket from him as compensation.

travel agency

Located at 59 Diagon Alley, Terrortours advertises that they offer "action holidays for the wizard family with a sense of adventure!" Some of their tours include:

* Transylvanian castles for rent, with the host a guaranteed vampire
* a trip down the "Zombie Trail" where you can come "face to face with the living dead!"
* a cruise through the Bermuda Triangle where you'll see the remains of ships that "didn't spot the monster."

The small print at the bottom of the ad warns that "Terrortours accepts no responsibility for death or injury."

Twilfit & Tatting's

An upscale clothing shop. Narcissa decided to take her business there after meeting a 'mudblood' in Madam Malkin's. Note that Twilfit and Tatting's is not specifically stated to be in Diagon Alley.

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes
joke items

Located at number 93, the Weasley twins set up premises in Diagon Alley in 1996

WhizzHard Books

Located at 129B Diagon Alley, and the publisher of Quidditch Through the Ages.
