The Shrieking Shack

“The Shrieking Shack was never haunted… the screams and howls the villagers used to hear were made by me.”

This abandoned, boarded-up house stands alone on the hillside above Hogsmeade. Creepy, yes – but haunted?

4, Privet Drive

Privet Drive looked exactly as a respectable suburban street would be expected to look

Number 4, Privet Drive is one of many identical large, square houses with large, square owners in the suburb of Little Whinging. Everything here is perfectly normal, thank you very much.

Hagrid’s Cabin

There was only one room inside. Hams and pheasants were hanging from the ceiling, a copper kettle was boiling on the open fire, and in the corner stood a massive bed with a patchwork quilt over it.

The little wooden cabin at the edge of the Forbidden Forest where Hagrid lives with his faithful dog Fang. Occasional other beastly inhabitants include Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback and Buckbeak the fugitive hippogriff.
