Hogsmeade Village, or simply Hogsmeade is the only settlement in Great Britain inhabited solely by magical beings, and is located to the northwest of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was founded by medieval wizard Hengist of Woodcroft. Students of Hogwarts who are in their third year and above are permitted to visit Hogsmeade during scheduled visits, to shop and mingle with friends unchaperoned, as long as they have a signed permission slip from a parent or guardian. Mainly, students frequent a high street in the Village which contains the named specialty shops and pubs in the series. Otherwise, they wander on to observe the infamous Shrieking Shack.

The Three Broomsticks

The Three Broomsticksis a well known inn and pub of the same name located on High Street in the village of Hogsmeade, Scotland. It is known for its delicious butterbeer and its beautiful owner Madam Rosmerta, who lives above the pub. The Three Broomsticks is a favoured destination among Hogwarts students and staff. The inn is also important in British Wizarding history being the site for the headquarters for the 1612 goblin rebellion, as mentioned in Sites of Historical Sorcery.

Zonko's Joke Shop

Zonko's Joke Shop has jokes and tricks that can "fulfil even Fred and George's wildest dreams." It closes down in Half-Blood Prince. Fred and George had planned to buy the shop, but decide against it when Hogwarts' students are banned from visiting Hogsmeade due to heightened security after Voldemort's rebirth.

Hogsmeade Station

Hogsmeade Station is the closest train stop to Hogwarts; the Hogwarts Express stops here after travelling from King's Cross. Scenes involving Hogsmeade Station in the Harry Potter films were shot at Goathland railway station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, built in 1865 and virtually unchanged, that serves the village of Goathland in the North York Moors. According to Rowling's illustrations, Hogsmeade station is not actually in Hogsmeade, but on the opposite side of the lake.

The Hog's Head

The Hog's Head is another pub, which often attracts a more unusual and private clientele than the Three Broomsticks, and many of the customers hide their faces. The hanging sign on the front of the pub has a severed boar's head, leaking blood onto the white cloth around it. The pub itself is filthy, with the floor covered with layers of dirt, and the windows smeared with so much grime that little light gets through. The main floor is a single room, but there are additional rooms on the upper floors. Harry notes that the pub smells strongly of goats. The barman is Aberforth Dumbledore, the brother of Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore.

Despite its seedy reputation, the Hog's Head pub has been host to several important events in the world of Harry Potter. The inn was the headquarters of the 1612 Goblin Rebellion.

Dervish & Banges

A shop that sells and repairs magical equipment, Dervish & Banges is located near the end of the High Street.

Gladrags Wizardwear

Gladrags Wizardwear sells clothing. There are other branches in London and Paris. It is full of quirky merchandise, and appears to specialise in strange and unusual socks.

Madam Puddifoot's

Located on a little side street off the main High Street, Madam Puddifoot's is a small teashop favourite among Hogwarts couples out on dates. On Valentine's Day Madam Puddifoot hires floating golden cherubs to throw pink confetti on visiting couples. Honeydukes Sweetshop

Honeydukes Sweetshop is one of the most famous wizarding confectioneries in the world. It sells wizarding sweets of all descriptions, including Chocolate Frogs, Liquorice Wands, Pepper Imps, Chocoballs, Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, Fizzing Whizzbees, Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum, Toothflossing Stringmints, Ice Mice, Cockroach Clusters, Jelly Slugs, Blood Lollipops, Acid Pops and Sugar Quills, among others. Honeydukes is particularly well known for their special kind of fudge. They also sell creamy chunks of nougat, shimmering pink squares of coconut ice, fat, honey-coloured toffees, and hundreds of different kinds of chocolate.

The owners, Ambrosius Flume and his wife, live in a flat above the shop. There is a trapdoor in the cellar of Honeydukes, which connects to a secret passage. The passage leads to a statue of a one-eyed witch on the third floor of Hogwarts.

Post Office

The Post Office is filled with at least two–to–three–hundred owls, ranging from Great Grey Owls to tiny Scops (the latter for "local deliveries only"), hooting down from colour-coded shelves. The shelves are colour-coded based on how quickly they will arrive at their destination.

Shrieking Shack

The Shrieking Shack, on the outskirts of Hogsmeade, is believed to be the most haunted building in Great Britain. Connected to Hogwarts by a secret tunnel, the Shrieking Shack was used by Remus Lupin, a werewolf, to hide during the full moon to avoid harming fellow students or others. The villagers heard the noise and mistook it for violent spirits. This rumour, encouraged by Dumbledore, led to the Shrieking Shack being officially regarded as the most haunted building in Britain.

If posting do as following:

Zonkos

Sirius grinned as the third years gushed over the Zonkos toys. He was so much more mature then he had been in third year. A sign on the table caught his eye: NEW ZONKOS PRODUCT HALF PRICE!!!! Sirius jumped in excitement. "Omigod, omigod,omigod!!"

The Three Broomsticks

Alysia pushed the door open and walked in, shivering slightly from the bitter cold outside. She spotted an empty table near the enormous fireplace and sat there, glancing at her watch with a sigh. Cole wasn't due for another few minutes.

"You're early," Alysia stated, slightly surprised, but pleased all the same.

12/26/2009 #3

Alysia smiled softly as she accepted her drink. "You're just saying that," she teased.

12/26/2009 #4
ladia2287

"Well, it's nice and warm right here. Why don't we stay for a while," Alysia suggested.

12/26/2009 #5
ladia2287

Alysia nodded, shivering slightly as the fire started to warm her. "It's freezing out there," she commented, taking a sip of her drink.

12/26/2009 #6

"Is there a reward worthy of the risk?" Alysia asked cheekily.

12/26/2009 #7
ladia2287

"I suppose that will suffice," Alysia replied with a grin, taking a green one out and popping it in her mouth. She gagged slightly as she swallowed it. "Yuck. Jalapeno," she muttered.

12/26/2009 #8
ladia2287

Alysia took a rather large sip of her drink, then pretended to glare at Cole. "Okay, because I got a crappy flavoured one, that means I get to have another," she decided playfully.

12/26/2009 #9
ladia2287

Alysia nodded and reached forward to take another, putting it in her mouth. "Hmm... sherbert," she murmured with a grin.

12/26/2009 #10
ladia2287

Alysia grinned and pulled a dark brown one out of the box. "Chocolate pudding," she said dreamily. She did enjoy chocolate pudding above almost anything else that was edible.

12/26/2009 #11
ladia2287

"Now how would you know what blood tastes like?" Alysia asked cheekily as she took another. This one turned out to be lemonade.

12/26/2009 #12
ladia2287

Alysia took one and popped it in her mouth. "Blergh! Anchovy," she muttered, taking another gulp of her butterbeer.

12/26/2009 #13
ladia2287

Alysia grinned. "I think we've both had the same number of crappy flavoured ones, so I guess we're even now," she teased.

12/26/2009 #14
ladia2287

"Well, are we going to actually get something to eat, or are we going to pig out on Bertie Bott's beans all day?" Alysia asked cheekily.

12/31/2009 #15
ladia2287

"Well, I'm kinda fond of this cosy spot by the fire. Why don't we get something to eat here?" Alysia suggested.

(This must be freaky timing; I think we both logged back in at the same time or something :P)

The Three Broomsticks, new day:

Tristan walked in with his hand still holding onto Aingeal's, "what would you like?" He inquired finding a corner booth for the two.

"I think I'll get a butter beer, what about you?" Aingeal asked brushing off a bit of snow from her hair.

1/14/2010 #18
MarauderMischief

"Same," Tristan said rubbing his hands together, her fingers still caught between them.

1/14/2010 #19

Aingeal grinned at him, "I'll go up and order then," she said waiting for him to let go of her hands.

MarauderMischief

Tristan nodded slipping off his jacket and scarf as he released her hands with just a slight lingering touch.

1/14/2010 #21

Aingeal shrugged her coat off and went to the bar area. She came back holding two pints of butter beer a few minutes later, sliding in beside Tristan she put the drinks down.

1/14/2010 #22
MarauderMischief

"Mmmm..." Tristan said smelling them, "the ones at school aren't the same as how she makes them..." he wrapped his hands around the warm mug with a smile, "thanks for coming out with me today."

1/14/2010 #23
halloweenbaby

"Your right, but I think its also because we don't come here often enough to get used to having it how she makes it." Aingeal said taking a sip and smiling, "I wanted to come and if you haven't noticed I do like spending time with you." She said teasingly.

1/14/2010 #24
MarauderMischief

Tristan nodded in agreement as she spoke sipping his glass as well, he smiled when she finished her statement, "I have noticed," he replied teasing back. "Rather lucky of me isn't it?"

1/14/2010 #25
halloweenbaby

"Yes, yes it is. Although I must say I feel rather lucky also," Aingeal said grinning at him and taking another sip.

1/14/2010 #26
MarauderMischief

Tristan smiled leaning back in the booth while drinking the warm liquid.

1/14/2010 #27
halloweenbaby

"So, what shops do you want to go to after this?" Aingeal asked playing with the fringe of her scarf.

1/14/2010 #28
MarauderMischief

"Anything really," Tristan said looking out the window, "I haven't been here in a while."

1/14/2010 #29
halloweenbaby

"Same, although I think theres a few stands set up at the train station around christmas." Aingeal said sipping from her glass.
