Ceridwen's Cauldrons is a shop located on the High Street, in Hogsmeade, that specialises on cauldrons.[1]

The storewindow features a Self-Stirring Cauldron.

Behind the scenes

  • In Welsh medieval legend, Ceridwen was an enchantress (or goddess, depending on the version of the tale), who had an hideously ugly son, whom she sought to make wise in compensation. She made a potion in her magical cauldron to grant him the gift of wisdom and poetic inspiration: the first three drops of liquid from this potion gave wisdom; the rest was a fatal poison.
  • A Ceridwen's Cauldrons storefront was added to Hogsmeade at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, as a result of the Diagon Alley expansion. That storefront used to house Potage's Cauldron Shop, which was moved to its proper location, Diagon Alley.
