Which Hogwarts House are you? Find out with our Sorting Hat quiz

Muggles of London! It’s time to sort your lives out. Answer these capital city-based questions in our Harry Potter house quiz to see where you belong at Hogwarts

By Phoebe Trimingham

Listen up, Harry Potter fans. Times may be tough, but we can always escape into the world of JK Rowling’s boy wizard, plus frankly, it’s never a bad time to find out if you’re a Hufflepuff or not.

Take our essential Hogwarts house quiz to find out which of the four you belong to. Because, anybody who knows their wizarding stuff knows that the houses – that’s Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Slytherin – aren't just for organising broomstick-based sports teams. They go beyond quidditch: they’re a way of life. The Sorting Hat isn’t random: it sees deep into your soul to define – once and for all – which Hogwarts house is yours to stake a claim to.

That definitely 100% entirely goes for this particular Harry Potter house quiz, which was written to celebrate the launch of Jack Thorne and JK Rowling’s play ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ back in 2016 – and it’s the only one giving you the chance to get your London life sorted in the process. Answer the 11 city-based questions below and KAPOW: like magic, your existence in the capital will suddenly make sense. 

Alas, it’s about the closest you’re going to get to the play at the moment: Palace Theatre proprietor Nica Burns has confirmed performances will be suspended until at least October 2021 (although several other London theatres will be reopening on May 17). But for that vicarious thrill, do check out our review of ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’, and if you’d like a deeper Potter hit, check out Time Out’s guide to Harry Potter things to do in London – so you can start planning those wizarding day trips for when we’re all allowed back out again.
