Hogsmeade, Scotland, UK is a fictional settlement, that appears in the Harry Potter novels. Hogsmeade is the only pure wizarding settlement in the United Kingdom and is located south of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Third year students and older are permitted to visit the village, as long as they have a signed permission slip from their parent or guardian. Hogsmeade hasn't yet appeared in the films, unless one counts the short sequence where the train arrives at the Hogsmeade station in the first movie.

The Three Broomsticks

A poppular pub which serves butterbear. Madam Rosemerta owns the place.

Zonko's Joke Shop

Zonko's has jokes that could "fulfill even Fred and George's wildest dreams."

The Hogsmeade Station

This is where the Hogwarts Express arrives after traveling from King Cross Station.

The Hog's Head

The Hog's Head is another pub, which attracts more "interesting" customers than the Three Broomstikes.

Dervish and Banges

This place sells magical equipment.

Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop

Hermione Granger bought a black-and-gold pheasant-feather quill here.

Gladrags Wizardwear

Gladrags Wizardwear sells clothes. There are other shops in London and Paris.

Madam Puddifoot's

For some reason Madam Puddifoot's place attracts couples. Harry and Cho went on their first date here.

Honeydukes Sweetshop

Honeydukes sells candies of all descriptions. The owners of this place live above the shop. There is a secret passage between here and a statue of a humpbacked witch on the third floor of Hogwarts.

The Post Office

This place is filled with owls which are color-coded based on how fast you want your letter to get to its destination.

The Shrieking Shack

This house is supposed to be the most severely haunted building in Britain. The Hogwarts ghosts avoid this place. Fred and George Weasley tried to get in of cource, but failed.

This house was built when a werewolf named Remus Lupin arrived at the school. A tunnel was built leading to the house, and the whomping willow was planted over the entrance. Lupin was brought here when he became a werewolf, so that he wouldn't be a danger to people. As he was removed from humans to bite, he bit and scratched himself. Villagers who heard the noise thought they were hearing very violent spirits. Albus Dumbledore encouraged this rumor. Even though the house has been silent for years, the villagers don't dare approach it. Needless to say, the place isn't really haunted.
