How to find the Headmaster's Office

You'll find the Headmaster's Office at the highest point of Hogwarts. That means climbing the Grand Staircase to its peak, venturing through the Trophy Room corridor, and picking the Level 1 locked gate.

Head up the next set of stairs and through the winding wooden corridor and you'll eventually emerge into another familiar stone hallway. On your left is a grand, imposing statue in a nook with two Hogwarts pillars on either side. That's the entrance to the Headmaster's Office.
