In the Wizarding World, there are few places more terrifying than Azkaban prison. It’s the home of the Dementors and it’s where the most dangerous witches and wizards go when they’ve committed a crime. While some prisoners are sent there by accident (sorry Hagrid), most of the people there are not someone you’d like to have over for dinner. In Hogwarts Legacy, players can actually visit Azkaban prison. However, this can only happen through one specific quest line, which is only available to one House.

To see exactly how to get to Azkaban in Hogwarts Legacy, check out the guide below.

If you want to see Azkaban, you’ll need to be a part of Hufflepuff House. This means that if you didn’t choose Hufflepuff as your House in the Sorting Ceremony, then you need to create a new character if you want to visit Azkaban. Luckily, the game gives you four save slots so you can be a part of all four houses without having to override existing save files.

For those that are in Hufflepuff, you will eventually have a side quest open up that allows you to go to the infamous prison. That side quest becomes available around level 6 and it’s triggered after you’ve helped an old woman by the lake. Once this quest is complete, an owl will arrive with a message telling you that a painting in the Hufflepuff common room wants a word.

Go and talk with the painting and you will see a somewhat familiar face. The painting will send you on a quest that takes you outside the castle, where you’ll eventually meet a character named Helen Thistlewood. She will then you to Azkaban, where you can see some Dementors and even a Patronus charm being cast.

However, that’s about the extent of your Azkaban visit. The game does not show you much of the prison and that’s likely all we will ever see of it. The developers are planning no DLC for Hogwarts Legacy, so more of Azkaban will never be shown unless we happen to see it in a sequel.
