The Central tower is one of the many towers of Hogwarts Castle. It sits atop the Long Gallery and overlooks the Viaduct Entrance. It is also near the Herbology greenhouses.

History

On 2 May, 1998, during the Battle of Hogwarts, this tower was almost completely blown up.

Behind the scenes

  • In the first two films, the tower had a square base and rounded top with a round spire. It had a balcony on each side and a smaller tower on each corner. From the Prisoner of Azkaban film to the Order of the Phoenix film, it changed to being completely square without any balconies. In the Half-Blood Prince film onwards, the tower is shorter.
  • This tower may be the Ravenclaw Tower, since it is one of the main towers in the castle.
