Hogwarts Castle Grounds, Scotland, Great Britain


Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

The Gargoyle Gate is a passage at Hogwarts Castle, connecting the main grounds with a small forest section. The gate is on a small paved courtyard, and it is comprised of big wooden double doors flanked by two columns topped with winged gargoyles shaped like boars.[1] Later, another door was added which leads elsewhere.[2]



In 1991, Quirinus Quirrell Transfigured one of the gargoyles to attack Harry Potter. Harry, however, managed to defeat it.[1]


Harry and Ronald Weasley ran through here through two different doors to meet outside Rubeus Hagrid's hut.
