H is for Hogsmeade
“They make a fuss about Hogsmeade, but I assure you, Harry, it's not all it's cracked up to be. All right, the sweetshop's rather good, and Zonko's Joke Shop's frankly dangerous, and yes, the Shrieking Shack is always worth a visit, but really, Harry, apart from that, you're not missing anything.”
'Hogsmeade Village, or simply called Hogsmeade is the only all-wizarding village in Britain. It was founded by Hengist of Woodcroft. Students may sometimes come on weekend trips, but only third year students and above with guardian permission are allowed to visit. Mainly, students frequent the High Street in the village which contains the named specialty shops and pubs such as Zonko's Joke Shop and Honeydukes. Otherwise, they wander on to observe the infamous Shrieking Shack.
Hogsmeade is a picturesque little village of thatched cottages and shops, with enchanted candles hanging in the trees during the holidays. It is also near the location of the train station used by theHogwarts Express.'

Hogsmeade is a place I would absolutely adore to visit. The Butterbeer at the London Studio Tour just did not live up to my expectations haha! It needs to be lovely, warm and preferable poured by Madam Rosmerta. So many wonderful memories from this cute little village; from Harry sneaking out there to the pranks pulled on Draco by our favourite trio, I just can't get enough of this little village.
