The Forbidden Forest is a large, dark forest in the boundaries of the school grounds. It is usually referred to simply as “the Forest” and in the film series as the “Dark Forest”. It is strictly forbidden to all students, except during Care of Magical Creatures lessons and, on rare occasions, detentions. Among the plant species within the Forest are trees such as beech, oak, pine, sycamore, yew and knotgrass and thorn undergrowth. Though the Forest is vastly dense and wild, there are a few paths and clearings. Hagrid, who frequently travels into the Forest for various reasons, mostly makes these trails. The Forest is also home to an assortment of creatures, many of them dangerous. In 2017, a Forbidden Forest expansion was added to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, enabling fans to explore it for the first time.
