"Potions lessons took place down in one of the dungeons. It was colder here than up in the main castle, and would have been quite creepy enough without the pickled animals floating in glass jars all around the walls."
—Description[src]

The Potions Classroom was one of the large dungeons[1] in Hogwarts Castle, used for Potions lessons. It is large enough to allow at least twenty students to work and its walls are lined with pickled animals in glass jars.[2] In one corner of the room stands a basin into which ice-cold water pours from a gargoyle's mouth, while in another is a student supply cupboard. There is also a blackboard on which the Potions Master can write the class's instructions.[3] The room is especially cold, particularly in the winter when students are able to see their own breath.[4]

While the Gryffindor common room and the Great Hall had roaring fires, the drafty corridors had become icy and a bitter wind rattled the windows in the classrooms. Worst of all were Professor Snape's classes down in the dungeons, where their breath rose in a mist before them and they kept as close as possible to their hot cauldrons."
