Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Places
This page will provide a list of places mentioned and visited in the Harry Potter series of novels. Emphasis is given to places where a substantial amount of action has occurred, or that play a significant off-stage role in the story arc. Primarily, this page will consist of links to more in-depth articles about these places.
We note that some places are also institutions (e.g. the Ministry of Magic) or groups of people (e.g. the House of Gaunt). Articles linked from this page will concern themselves with the location; other aspects will be covered in articles under different headings.
