Located in the heart of London, the Ministry's vistitors' entrance is, for want of a better word, a tad unorthodox, so we beg your indulgence. Visitors should proceed to the red telephone box beside the pub and dial 62442 to receive your visitors badge. The ministry welcomes this oppportunity to demonstrate to the muggle world that, contrary to prior reports, we hold non-magical folk in the utmost highest regard.

 

Kingsley Shacklebolt,

Minister of Magic

The Ministry is built of a series of room boxes mounted inside a large wooden cabinet. In part 1 we are looking at the atrium side of the cabinet where the magical building is divided into several room boxes of varying sizes. Above ground is a tavern based perhaps on the Leaky Cauldron and the red telephone box tucked into an alley providing entrance to the Ministry below.

 

One floor down is the atrium with central fountain and walls adorned with 3D portraits. To the rear an archway leads to the banks of lifts whisking ministry officials to other parts of the building. Adjacent to the lifts is the floo network.

   

Finally on this side of the building is the infamous Wizengamot,the high court of wizarding law in Britain.
