Which Hogwarts house are you? Find out with our Harry Potter Sorting Hat quiz

Wizards, witches and assorted muggles of London, it’s time to sort your lives out. Take our Big Smoke-based quiz to see which Hogwarts house you’re in, once and for all

By Phoebe Trimingham |

The four houses of Hogwarts – that’s Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Slytherin – aren't just for organising Quidditch teams. They're a way of life. As all Harry Potter fans know, the Sorting Hat can see into your soul, read your innermost thoughts and place you in a life-long bond with like-minded friends and freaks.

Sure, there are other, inferior, Sorting Hat quizzes out there, but this one – which was written to celebrate the launch of Jack Thorne and JK Rowling’s play ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ back in 2016 – is the only one giving you the chance to get your London life sorted. Answer the 11 city-based questions below and KAPOW: like magic, your existence in the capital will suddenly make sense. Identity politics have never been so fun.
