On good days, and sometimes even bad, students can be found out on the grounds of the castle. It's a great place to relieve stress, play games (wizard games or muggle) and just enjoy the nice weather when it comes. Cocky students can often be found trying to venture in the forest, though the stories all end with cowards.

common rooms
Each house has a common room that is private to each of them. Depending on which house you are sorted in will decide how you get into the common room. The most popular method is by using a password, though Ravenclaw requires the person to solve a riddle.

The classrooms are an integral part of any school. At Hogwarts, there are plenty of classes that students may opt to take, and some that they have to take. In these rooms, they learn everything they need to know to become a part of wizarding society. These rooms are probably where most students feel they go to die.

If you've ever been in trouble, the offices of a professor or the headmaster are probably very familiar to you. These places usually have little personality and tend to reflect whatever the professor teaches, though some will decorate the room liberally.

The towers are a characteristic that helps to identify Hogwarts. It's from these towers that students are able to get a bird's eye view of the school and the surrounding areas. On clear nights, it's easy to see Hogsmeade from the Astronomy Tower. On bad nights, you can barely see your hand in front of your face.

hidden places
Hogwarts is a place of secrets a lot of the times. A student who gets lost can find a lot of things. There are certain places, though, that are best to remain hidden. A rule of thumb is that if the place was hidden it was probably hidden for a reason.

important locations
Although these places aren't as important as the common rooms and classrooms, they are important to the students. For some, these places are some of their favorites to go to, though for others they hate them.

Not every place in Hogwarts is exactly noteworthy nor is it some place that students particularly want to be. More often than not, the students can get lost in the dungeons, stalk the corridors, and on bad days, they end up badly injured...

Students from Hogwarts who are 13+ are allowed to visit the village of Hogsmeade. This is the only settlement in Britain that is inhabited solely by magical beings. It contains many shops, such as The Three Broomsticks, Zonko's Joke Shop, and The Shrieking Shack.

wizarding homes
The wizarding world is clever when hiding itself among the muggles. There are many places for wizards to make themselves at home. Ottery St Catchpole, Little Hangleton, and Spinner's End can all be found here.

diagon alley
Tapping just the right brick in the wall behind the Leaky Cauldron pub in London will reveal an archway which is a portal into Diagon Alley, a long cobbled street where there are various shops.

Located deep underground central Britain is the Ministry of Magic. There are many ways to enter, whether by the Floo Network, or using a payphone on the muggle street above.
