The staircase

The Grand Staircase is a massive structure, mainly used to access each floor of the castle, including the dungeons. There are hundreds of Portraits covering the walls in this tower, some of which conceal secret passages to other areas within the school. The multiple staircases in the Grand Staircase lead from platform to platform and go as high as the seventh floor where they come to an end.

Behind the scenes

  • Although it is not mentioned in any of the novels, this part appears in LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Despite this, some areas of Hogwarts East had appeared in novels, films and video games. And considering this is just refering to the east side of the school it might as well appear in novels, films and video games.
