Hogwarts Legacy features some of iconic locations from the Harry Potter universe — Hogsmeade, Forbidden Forest, amongst many others. However, one location that a lot of players have been wanting to visit is the Azkaban prison. And while it is possible to get there albeit for a short while, not everyone can do it. This is because the game only lets you visit the infamous prison if you are Hufflepuff. But how do you get there? In this guide, we have shared all the steps needed to visit the Azkaban prison in Hogwarts Legacy.
Hogwarts Legacy Azkaban
Before we begin, it is important to note that you can visit Azkaban only if you are a Hufflepuff. The journey begins with the Prisoner of Love questline. In order to start it, you will need to receive an Owl Post to speak with the portrait of Eldritch Diggory, located in the Common Room. Eldritch will inform you about an unsolved murder and direct you to Helen Thistlewood, his great-niece. You will find her in the Upper Hogsfield.
Helen will tell you about Anne, a prisoner wrongfully imprisoned in Azkaban. Once you are ready, Helen Thistlewood will apparate you to Azkaban. Upon arrival, a cutscene introduces the Dementors. This is where Helen uses her hare Patronus to protect you.
Once you are inside, you have the freedom to explore the prisons and even interact with other prisoners. You need to continue forward to find Anne in her cell, where she reveals crucial information and attacks Helen with magic.
After Azkaban, visit a cave as directed by Anne to uncover a puzzle involving the murder of Richard Jackdaw. This leads to the Jackdaw’s Rest questline, where you find missing pages near his remains. It is important to note that Azkaban can only be visited once during the game — after completing the quest, you cannot revisit Azkaban.
Also, despite players’ hopes, Azkaban is not accessible by committing in-game crimes. There are also some unique items that you can get while exploring Azkaban since you will not be able to get there anymore.
