Slughorn's Staircase is one of the largest staircases in Hogwarts Castle. It extends from the dungeons to the seventh floor. It has another exit on the sixth floor, near Horace Slughorn's office. The layout of the staircase is very similar to the Divination and Defence Against the Dark Arts Staircases, but the bottom (at dungeon-level) seems to have been excavated in the cliffs and, thus, the walls and the staircase itself are rough stone.
Horace Slughorn used to go down this staircase in his way to the Potions Classroom. The students used the staircase to go from the dungeons to the sixth and seventh floors of the castle. Besides that, Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood used it in their way to Slug Club Christmas party.
Behind the scenes
- It only appears in the video game adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and seems to be a replacement of the Divination Staircase, as it does not make an appearance. But in the film adaptation, there's a staircase which never appeared in another film adaptations.
- The name of the staircase is probably because it connects Slughorn's office to Slughorn's classroom. It is only given in the Nintendo DS version of the game.
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (film) (First appearance)
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (video game)
