{{Quote|[[Harry Potter|Harry]] had never even imagined such a strange and splendid place. It was lit by thousands and thousands of candles that were floating in midair over four long tables, where the rest of the students were sitting. These tables were laid with glittering golden plates and goblets. At the top of the hall was another long table where the teachers were sitting ''[...]'' The hundreds of faces staring at them looked like pale lanterns in the flickering candlelight ''[..]'' Harry looked upward and saw a velvety black ceiling dotted with stars. He heard [[Hermione Granger|Hermione]] whisper, "It's bewitched to look like the sky outside. I read about it in [[Hogwarts, A History]]" It was hard to believe there was a ceiling there at all, and that the Great Hall didn't simply open on to the heavens.|Description of the Great Hall.|Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone}}

The '''Great Hall''' in [[Hogwarts Castle]] is the main gathering area in the [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|school]] located off the [[Entrance Hall]]. Students eat their meals, receive daily [[owl]] [[Owl post|post]], and have certain special events here. The Great Hall is a large hall that can easily hold all of the school's students, staff, and guests. It has tall walls that reach up to the ceiling, which is covered with [[Great Hall floating candles|candles]] and [[Enchanted Ceiling|enchanted to look like the sky above]]. At the front of the hall, is the staff table, also known as the High Table, which is designed to house the entire Hogwarts staff.

The highlight of the table is the throne-like chair in the centre of the table where the current [[Headmaster]] or [[Headmaster|Headmistress]] sits. The Great Hall, as well as serving as the area for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the students and staff, was also the place in which many important events took place, such as the traditional [[Sorting Ceremony]] each year and the [[Duel in the Great Hall|defeat]] of [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]], which signified the close of the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] and the climatic end of the [[Second Wizarding War]]. To the left of the table is a door which leads to [[Chamber off the Great Hall|a chamber with portraits]].
