  Harry's magic on the web
Updated 01 November 2002, 13.04

Can't get enough of Harry and Hogwarts? Well, there's enough on the web to keep you busy for years.

We've surfed around on our virtual Nimbus and here are a few sites that caught our eye:


GENERAL SITES


Home page: A Golden Snitch buzzes around. Then you see a moon-lit Hogwarts and Mr Weasley's Ford Anglia crash-landed in the Whomping Willow. Look closer and you'll see owls flying and the car's headlights flashing.
Best bit: Enrol at Hogwarts and get sorted!
Muggle's remarks: A really slick site. As eye-popping as Diagon Alley, but the Daily Prophet headlines are slow to update.


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: Some familiar pics from the UK book covers, and you get to choose if you're a Muggle or a Witch or Wizard.
Best bit: See Potter book covers from all around the world!
Muggle's remarks: Don't be put off by the dull intro - the Witch/Wizard site has loads of great content. And turn up the volume for some spooky sounds!


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: A central pic of Harry from the US books. An owl flutters around the main menu - and move your mouse around for magical noises!
Best bit: Learn how to say various Potter names with the Pronunciation Guide - click on "Voldemort" and hear what happens!
Muggle's remarks: Another well-designed site, with lots of animation that might make it run a bit slow. Following the links is like having a Marauder's Map - they lead to some great adventures!


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: A really eye-catching design with Harry in a scarf on one side and pyjamas on the other.
Best bit: Harry Potter song parodies - sing along to popular tunes with magic new lyrics!
Muggle's remarks: There really is loads of info here, it's more varied than a bag of Bertie Botts' Every Flavour Beans.


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: This Harry Potter Weblog concentrates on words rather than pictures, so there's a simple title graphic and "brickwork" navigation bar.
Best bit: Stay on this home page for Potter news and gossip galore.
Muggle's remarks: Updated everyday with new links this is one to bookmark.


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: A straightforward entry page which gives only a hint of what treasures lurk within.
Best bit: The Wizard's Atlas pages - amazing maps and floorplans that have been lovingly put together from every scrap of information available.
Muggle's remarks: It's an amazing reference guide to the world of Harry Potter. Careful - or you'll get lost in all the trivia.


Golden Snitch rating:

ACTOR SITES


Home page: A nice picture of Dan with an easy-to-navigate index.
Best bit: The fan art pages are really stylish
Muggle's remarks: An unofficial shrine to Daniel Radcliffe - and check out the page dedicated to exposing fake Daniel e-mail addresses!


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: A definite Scottish theme and there's an arty pic of smiling Sean.
Best bit: Getting to know Sean - he answers questions from his message board.
Muggle's remarks: An official site with plenty of info and pix from the man himself - but it's not as comprehensive as the fansite below.


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: It's very red! Pics of the Oliver Wood heart-throb actor adorn the top and there's all the latest news about him.
Best bit: Fan fiction on Oliver's first encounter with a broomstick! Muggle's remarks: This is the place to be if you're Biggerstaff-bonkers. You can even take an Obsession Test!


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: A brief intro set against Hogwarts takes you to basic page of links and Emma pix. It's not an official site.
Best bit: Emma's brief biog.
Muggle's remarks: Not a lot of great content here, but Hermione fans will enjoy the pix galleries.


Golden Snitch rating:


Home page: Straight into the latest news about Chris (Percy Weasley). There's just a small pic of actor Chris in scarf and baseball cap and the rest is text, but it's all very easy on the eye.
Best bit: Some exclusive pics from Chris's collection.
Muggle's remarks: A full archive of all there is to know about Ron's big brother.
