Hermione Granger: "I think it's this way."
Ron Weasley: "Can't be. That's south. Look, you can see a bit of the lake outside the window..."

The Divination corridor is a passage on the seventh-floor[1] of Hogwarts Castle, stretching from a landing where Cadogan's portrait hangs to the Divination Stairwell in the North Tower.[2] It contains several paintings, which Cadogan ran through while leading Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger to the stairwell. The corridor is unfamiliar to students not studying Divination due to their lack of need to travel to its area of the castle.[3]

Puffing loudly, Harry, Ron, and Hermione climbed the tightly spiralling steps, getting dizzier and dizzier, until at last they heard the murmur of voices above them and knew they had reached the classroom."
