British Ministry of Magic
Europe ★ V|E|M|G|R|L ★ Harry Potter Canon

Welcome to The British Ministry of Magic! Located in London, the Ministry of Magic is the government authority for the magical community of the United Kingdom & Ireland. It consists of seven main departments from the Department of Magical Law Enforcement (the largest) to the more closely guarded Department of Mysteries. The Ministry of Magic has been governing since the late 1600s and has been led by the same guiding principles ever since to keep muggles from finding out about the existence of the magical community, sometimes to alarming degrees as evidenced by the First and Second Wizarding Wars.

Information

Location
Underneath Whitehall in London sits the very seat of the British magical government. Visitors looking to arrive at the Ministry of Magic whether to visit a friend or attend a disciplinary hearing may do so via a red telephone box located on a seemingly abandoned street in central London. Visitors are asked to provide a name and purpose for their visit by a Welcome Witch before being issued a silver visitors badge. Before continuing any further, wands must be checked in and weighed with security.

Past the Fountain of Magical Brethren and large golden gates, visitors make take one of the lifts to any of the nine floors accessible to them. While they're in the building, they are more than welcome to stop by the Ministry Cantina for a bite to eat or a spot of tea with the rest of the Ministry of Magic's employees.

The British Ministry of Magic's operations are centralized in London and it does not have locations throughout the United Kingdom like its American counterpart. Wizengamot hearings, apparation testing, patent filings, and all other sorts of other tasks are performed here by the government and by the people it serves.

British Law
The Ministry of Magic also dictates the laws of magical use in addition to enforcing the International Wizarding Statute of Secrecy. All magical children are imbued with the Trace. The Trace allows the Ministry to keep track of underage magic especially those living in the Muggle world. Once a witch or wizard turns 17, however, the Trace is lifted and he or she is welcome to perform magic within their home and community.

But witches and wizards aren't the only beings the Ministry of Magic oversees. There are numerous departments dedicated to the monitoring and control of magical beings and creatures. For example, werewolves and vampires are registered with the Ministry; those who do not are are subject to extreme Ministry discipline. The Ministry has been met with countless resistance from organized groups on behalf of these beings and creatures for better rights and autonomy.
