The Stone Circle (alternatively known as Sundial Garden[1]) is a circle of giant stones within the grounds of Hogwarts just outside of the Wooden Bridge. The stones form a sundial.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Sundial Garden is known simply as the Stone Circle in the Prisoner of Azkaban, Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince video games.
  • Inspiration for Stone Circle came from Stonehenge in the English County Wiltshire, as well as other stone circles, such as Avebury.[2]
  • In recalling the first time the young actors in the films first saw the stones, art director Alan Gilmore commented "I heard they asked Alfonso if the stones were why he chose the location. It's always gratifying when your work is mistaken for the real thing!"[2]
  • Since the circle is a sundial[2], it is possible it was used to adjust the time shown on the Clock Tower's dial should the clock become out of sequence with the actual time of day.
