The Tapestry Corridor[1] is a corridor located on the first floor of Hogwarts Castle. It connects the Viaduct Entrance to the main first floor. Its walls are covered in tapestries and, hung over the tapestries, portraits of wizards.[2] Severus Snape's storeroom is located in this corridor.[3]



In 1994, Harry Potter was passing by this corridor, using the Marauder's Map, because he was searching there for Peter Pettigrew, who supposed to be murdered by Sirius Black years before. Unfortunately, he was covered by Severus Snape. Severus ordered Harry to read the Marauder's Map, but the map founders - Loony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs - started to insult Snape. Moment later Harry and Snape were interrupted by Remus Lupin. Remus recognized the map and said that was probably just a piece of parchment from Zonko's Joke Shop, who insulted anyone who wanted to read it, because alongside Black, Pettigrew and James Potter was one of the marauders. After all, Lupin confiscated the map and took Harry to his office for conversation, leaving Snape in the corridor.[2]


In 1995, Harry Potter was passing by this corridor, when he heard Severus Snape and Igor Karkaroff discussing the Dark Mark on their arms inside Snape's storeroom. When they noticed Harry was there, Karkaroff left. Snape then accused Harry of having stolen Gillyweed, Boomslang skin and lacewing flies from his personal stores, a crime Harry was later found not guilty of during the interrogation of Barty Crouch Jr, who had been posing as Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody all year.[3]
