Pottermore Book 1 Chapter 5 Walkthrough

Lots of people (including myself) had difficulty navigating through Chapter 5 in Pottermore. It is in chapter 5 where we get a shopping list and have to buy everything on the list. This level can get quite tricky.

To begin with, in ‘Arriving at Diagon Alley’, you will have to pick up your shopping list.

To collect your shopping list, double click in the middle of the screen and you will see a shopping list. Simply click on it to collect it.

Now you will have the ability to proceed to ‘Harry and Hagrid Visit Gringotts’.

After you click out of that message, you will see a key and a lock. Drag the key to the lock and use it to unlock the lock.

You will receive 500 Galleons for shopping. You should then proceed to Diagon Alley.

  8. When ever I get to a moment the bottom of the page is cut off. The bottom inch doesn’t show up and because of this I can’t get the list.

    • that happened to me too, but maybe that’s because you are using a small laptop. all you have to do is press ctrl key and – or + until the whole thing is fitted on your screen.

  11. I’m having some trouble with the shopping list. Not finding it, but the list itself. Everytime I click the “go shopping” button, it simply refreshes the page And I’m still looking at the list. I tried clicking the Diagon Alley button and the X button in the corner, but nothing works. Can anybody please help?

    • if you are on firefox than that is the problem, switch to chrome and then you can click out.

  14. After gringotts it send me to Diagon alley right? Well the list comes out but it won’t close or won’t let me shop? Glitch or is there like a secret button because they always seem to have hidden buttons somewhere :/

  15. Everything worked just fine for me until I reached the part called “Harry goes shopping”… I can’t get the shopping list away from the screen for some reason (and yes, I’ve pressed the cross in the corner like a thousand times) so it’s impossible to reach the cauldron shop!

    Please help, I’ve tried both firefox and internet explorer and it just won’t work!

    • Proceed to the next chapter or if you can’t proceed. Use another browser or refresh 😀

  29. i am trying to get my wand from Ollivanders and i have selected my height and it wont go off that page to the next bit of getting my wand. if anyone can help me that would be very helpful.

  30. Which are better? The Glass Phials or Crystal?

    The Phials in Harry Potter are used to hold potion ingredients so i thought maybe the crystal would hold more, or is it a watse of money?

    • I prefer Crystal Phials. But it’s too expensive in my opinion. Glass Phials is good too.

  31. In the 1st moment you can also unlock information about Wizards Clothing. Just click on the witch in the (if I remember correctly) second level of zoom.

  32. Hellooo. I tried Pottermore just today.. and.. when i got to the stores. and pressed every store I could and nothing will appear..just the diadon ally scene and a loading pointer but it never finishes.. D’:

    • Proceed to the next chapter or re-check the shopping list if you bought everything

  34. Please help, it won’t show me the bottom of the page so I can’t collect the shopping list and I’m stuck help!!

  35. You can also unlock clothing in second level of zoom. Click the white shop and viola!
