Hogwarts: Diamonds in the rough (Year 1)
The only settlement in Britain inhabited solely by wizards and other magical beings, and is located to the northwest of Hogwarts. It consists of a small verity of shops while the other buildings in the aria are houses for the villages inhabitants, the building are:
- The Three Broomsticks
is a well known inn/pub located on High Street in the village of Hogsmeade. The Three Broomsticks is a favoured destination among Hogwarts students and staff, and is well known for items such as Butterbeer, a favourite among its customers.
- Zonko’s Joke Shop
re-opened by a previous Durmstrang student, Rolan Valentin moved to England after graduating. Rolan often says that the reason he took over the store and revised it to its previous glory was because of the fond memory he had of the building when he was a child coming over to England to visit his uncle during summer vacation. A jokes and tricks shop, selling item such as Dungbombs, Hiccup Sweets, Frog Spawn Soap, and Nose-Biting Teacups.
- Hogsmeade Station
The closest train stop to Hogwarts, this is where the students arrive after being on the Hogwarts Express. a small station, with a few trains coming in and out through the week. it has 3 paths leading from it as well as a road leading to the centre of Hogsmead.
- The Hog’s Head
the other pub of Hogsmead, it often attracts a more disreputable clientele than the Three Broomsticks, most choosing to hide their faces out of a desire not to be recognised. The hanging sign in front of the pub has a severed boar’s head, leaking blood onto the white cloth around it. The pub itself is filthy, with the floor covered with layers of dirt and the windows smeared with so much grime that little light gets through. The main floor is a single room, but there are additional rooms on the upper floors. most people avoids the building and it sits at the edge of Hogsmead towards the Shrieking shack.
- Dervish & Banges
selling and repairing magical equipment, Dervish & Banges is located near the end of the High Street.
- Gladrags Wizardwear
a clothing brand now commonly found across England, they sell more quirky items, from unusual socks to colourful tops, the store has a good mix of different fashion tastes.
- Scrivenshaft’s Quill Shop
a wizarding stationery shop selling items such as quills, ink, parchment, envelopes and seals.
- Madam Puddifoot’s
off the main High Street, Madam Puddifoot’s is a small teashop favourite among Hogwarts couples out on dates. It’s described as a cramped, steamy place where everything is adorned with bows or frills. The small, circular tables are set for two. On Valentine’s Day Madam Puddifoot hires floating golden cherubs to throw pink confetti on visiting couples.
- Post Office
filled with at least two to three hundred owls, ranging from great grey owls to tiny scoops (the latter for “local deliveries only”), hooting down from colour-coded shelves. These owls deliver mail to people across the world. The shelves are colour-coded based on how quickly they will arrive at their destination.
- Shrieking Shack
on the outskirts of Hogsmeade, is believed to be the most haunted building in Great Britain. It stands a little way above the rest of Hogsmeade, with boarded-up windows and an overgrown garden. It’s described to be slightly creepy even in daylight. while the tunnel connecting to Hogwarts is said to have been destroyed there is a rumour through the students that its entrance has simply been moved and is somewhere on Hogwarts grounds.
- The Hogsmeade weekend trips
A treat for 3rd years and above (with rewired promotion slips, signed by the students parent or guardian) allowing them to go to the village on certain weekends. These trips happen once a moth on the last weekend of that month.
