Dumbledore's office
*Dumbledore's office, a quiet retreat and study for the sage Headmaster, was located in one of the highest towers of Hogwarts. Dumbledore's fascination with the universe and the skies became the room's defining feature.

*One of the most expensive props in the film was the working telescope in Dumbledore's office which was rarely seen on screen.

*On the shelves in Dumbledore's office are hundreds of books, many of which are actually old phonebooks covered in leather and dust.

*The Great Hall was built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2000 and was used as a key set for six more films. (The Great Hall does not appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1).

*The House Points Counter was rarely seen on screen, but it is rumoured that when it was first built it caused a national shortage of Indian glass beads.

*The spectacular Great Hall includes the costumes of students from each Hogwarts house plus two large tables which are set for dinner; at the top of the room is the teachers' table where the Hogwarts Professors sat. Iconic scenes such as the Yule Ball and the Battle of Hogwarts were filmed here.
