Is Diagon Alley in Hogwarts Legacy?

As of right now, there is no way of going to Diagon Alley. Instead, all shops are in Hogsmeade. Many Harry Potter fans know this location from the films, but the storyline of Hogwarts Legacy takes place approximately 100 years before Harry was born. Therefore, Diagon Alley does not have such an important role without Harry Potter and other heroes.

Moreover, if you head to the FAQ page on the official website, you will find out that developers officially revealed only the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village. “Hogwarts Legacy takes players beyond Hogwarts to new and familiar locations, including the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.”

At the same time, the main enemies in Hogwarts Legacy are Goblins. They started a rebellion, and our hero is the only one who can stop it. If you consider the best places to find goblins in the Harry Potter universe, you will find out that the best goblin area is Gringotts Bank, located on the north side of Diagon Alley.

You should consider that Hogwarts Legacy is set in the late 1800s. Therefore, the most popular Harry Potter stores like The Junk Shop, Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions, Magical Menageries, and others will not be present in the game.
