Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the much loved Harry Potter franchise is undeniably the most famous fictional school, beloved by us muggles, who relentlessly read about it and watch the films.

Built before any other school around 993 AD, the castle was set up for non muggles - witches and wizards alike - by the four founding figures Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor and has since become a haven for all magic children in England.

It has since encountered a variety of ups and downs throughout the Harry Potter and newest Fantastic Beasts series, the latter of which looks at the history of what came before the famous boy wizard set foot on the grounds. Nobody truly knows all of the secrets that reside within the grounds from when it first came to be, maybe not even Dumbledore himself.

Hogwarts is a mystery to most, but here are just a few fascinating facts that you probably didn't know about the famous fictional school we all wished we went to when we turned eleven years old and waited for our letter.
