Your first few days on Hogwarts Legacy will likely see you exploring every inch of the world. Whether it be on foot or via your trusty broomstick, taking in the sights and sounds is a big part of the experience when diving in for the first time.

That being said, as the world slowly expands and you discover every corner of the map, you’re eventually going to want to get around quicker. Thankfully, in a world filled with magic, fast travel is a handy tool witches and wizards can use to get from one side of the map to another.

If you’re looking to get around quicker, here is how to unlock and use fast travel in the world of Hogwarts Legacy.

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.

In order to unlock fast travel in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll need to advance through the story until you reach a part where Professor Weasley is guiding you. During this section, you will be introduced to Floo Flames.

Floo Flames act as fast travel points, and once discovered, can be used to venture from one point to another, much like the Floo Network in the Harry Potter books. A tutorial prompt will introduce you to everything you need to know about fast travelling in Hogwarts Legacy.

As you explore Hogwarts and the surrounding world, you will unlock more Floo Flames. These can be used anytime outside missions and it’s as simple as loading up the map and selecting another point on the world map. You’ll instantly be transported there and be able to continue your adventure.

In the early hours, you’ll probably want to explore as much as possible, but once you get into the swing of things and work to collect the many collectables, using fast travel in Hogwarts Legacy is a necessity.
