Hogwarts Legacy: Castle Locations Guide and Exploration

In the Hogwarts Legacy Castle Locations Guide and Exploration, we’ll take a closer look at each playable space in the game and what is special about them.


Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world introduced in the Harry Potter books. It’s quite easily one of the 2023 most highly-anticipated games. The game takes place at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s. Players can create their own Wizard or Witch and explore the magical open world, attend classes, fly on magical creatures, fight casting spells, make potions and much more.

Castle Locations

As any well-versed Harry Potter fan knows, Hogwarts Castle is huge. This structure needs to not only house the student body and working staff for at least eight months of the year, but also has to have plenty of room for classrooms, a library, greenhouse, observatory, dungeons, offices, dining hall and more. 

It’s not yet been confirmed exactly how many spaces and rooms we’ll be able to nose around in as a player, but during the livestream the developer team gave viewers a short tour around the castle and showed off some of the places we’ll be able to visit.

House Common Rooms

The House Common Rooms are places where the art design in the game really get to shine! Taking a lot of inspiration directly from the books in their creation of these student areas, the developers sought to reflect each house with not only their colors but representative elements: Earth for Hufflepuff, Air for Ravenclaw, Fire for Gryffindor, and Water for Slytherin. 

Great Hall

The Great Hall is one of the most iconic locations in the castle, where students gather for meals and socializing together while hundreds of lighted candles float above their heads. For now, the developers don’t want to spoil what this extra-large room will look like, but it has been confirmed that it is in the game. Just beyond those double doors to the right of the House hourglasses keeping track of house points!

Grand Staircase

The grand staircase is another fun space, with moving staircases keeping students on their toes. In this screen capture, we can also see that visiting certain places for the first time will light a small floo flame which enables fast travel.


Hogwarts Legacy Courtyard

There is plenty of open, exterior courtyard space just outside the main castle entrance. On nice days, lots of students like to gather outside with friends.
