This tower was part of Hogwarts Castle. It was located at the back of the left Viaduct tower, adjacent to the Viaduct Entrance.[1] The second floor of the tower hosted a girls' lavatory.[2]


Myrtle's bathroom

This girls' lavatory was situated on the first floor of the tower. It had been out of order ever since a student named Myrtle Warren was killed there. Myrtle had haunted the bathroom ever since, leading it to be a place most students did not want to enter. This bathroom held the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets. To get in the Chamber, a person needed to say "open" in Parseltongue. This would cause the entire section of the sink with the tap with a snake on the side (a tap which incidentally, never worked) to move into the floor, revealing a tunnel which led downwards into the Chamber.

Behind the scenes

  • Despite how the tower seems small and off-centred, the lavatory seems exceptionally large and key-hole shaped. However, this may be supported with magic.
