Holyhead is a town located on the isle of Anglesey in the northwest of Wales.[1] It is one of the many villages throughout Britain where witches and wizards settled in numbers after the International Statute of Secrecy to rely on each other for mutual support, living alongside a Muggle population.[2]

Holyhead is the home of the Quidditch team the Holyhead Harpies.[3][4][5][6][7]
