    If anybody wants to know more information, I uploaded the Pottermore information to PasteBin. It answers a few of the questions. Don't click if you don't want to uncover it yourself.

    I don't think other than Pottermore there's much more in the books about it.

    Harry found it hard to find, but that could have just been because he was new and in the dark, or it could actually be...

    Okay, as simply as I can. The Hogwarts year groups can't be that big. That is because most subjects are taken with one other house. This means that half a year group is together. It would be very...

    It doesn't matter at all if it was built for the whole of Europe or just Britain, my point is that it was built for many more students than it currently holds.


    Not really, if you think about the...

    Those laws are a human's explanation of the world around us. They come from observing and collecting what we know to create simple formulas: the magical world, the world of Harry Potter, has a...

    I'd never considered the sorting before, that's a valuable point.

    As I said, I think the years around Harry must have been particularly low on students. Although you are correct, the sorting is...

    We know from canon there's a special prefect's bathroom and separate male and female bathrooms, most likely a set on each floor (although without baths/showers, so more just toilets, but bathrooms...

    Because Arthur collects electrical and muggle things! We encounter very few wizards who have the slightest interest in muggles, let alone collecting muggle artefacts. He has no need to do it, but he...

    If you've never had even the slightest education in physics then I doubt you'd have any idea how electricity works. I imagine he must have at least some working electrical items, if only a clock or...

    Well Arthur's shed if full of electrical things, although objects like the car have obviously been enchanted, he also collects plugs and batteries and I assume they work. Taxi drivers came to pick...

    I know Hogwarts is full with magic, I was trying to establish how much magic was needed: as the MoM and St. Mungo's, which have far more powerful magic in place, operate around very busy muggle...

    Firstly it is Goblet of Fire where it's mentioned, I believe.

    Electrical items still work at the Weasley's even when there are 10s of wizards about. The places around St. Mungo's, the Ministry...
