Hogsmeade, the iconic cosy village just outside of Hogwarts, is back in the prequel game, Hogwarts Legacy. Keen to revisit the quaint little settlement of shops and taverns known from the Harry Potter books and movies, some players will be anxious to know how to get there. Let's get into this "how to get to Hogsmeade Hogwarts Legacy" guide.

Disclaimer: While the creator of the Harry Potter franchise was not directly involved in the creation of Hogwarts Legacy, their comments on social media around transgender people are hurtful and dangerous given the size of their platform. 

We’d implore you to read our explainer of the controversy so far, and consider supporting trans rights charities where possible.

Thankfully, you won't have to wait long to get to Hogsmeade in Hogwarts Legacy. What you need to do is play for the first couple of hours and get through the introductory story until you acquire the mission, Welcome to Hogsmade. After your introductory classes, Charms and Defence the Dark Arts, Professor Weasley will be sending you off to Hogsmeade to get your school supplies. 

As long as you're at least Level 2 and know the Utility spell Reparo - both of which you'll achieve by simply following the game - you can start the mission. You'll be directed to go to the Hogwarts entrance to meet one of your new friends, Natty or Sebastion, who'll take you right to the village. 

Once in Hogsmeade, you'll not only acquire new gameplay abilities by further progressing the story, but will also have access to other options as well. Along with being able to edit your appearance at Madam Snelling's Tress Emporium, you'll also be able to start buying potions, ingredients, and new gear. 

That's all you need to know on this "get to Hogsmeade Hogwarts Legacy how-to" guide.
