Harry Potter phone wallpaper is always in! Let’s be honest – Harry Potter will just never go out of style. I’ll never get tired of opening my phone and seeing something from Hogwarts pop up.
I’ve been on a huge Harry Potter kick lately and wanted to include some of this fun on my blog. There’s something just so happy about the Harry Potter world. You’re never too old for it!
I’m a fan of the more subtle nods to Harry Potter in my home decor, my outfit choices, and even my iPhone’s wallpaper. Some of these are subtle but some are more obvious for those of you who really want to know what the wallpaper refers to!
These 65+ Harry Potter wallpaper downloads are my absolute favorites. I know, that’s a ton of options, but I just couldn’t pick! Between all the characters, locations, and houses, there’s a lot to choose from.
If you see a Harry Potter wallpaper option that you especially enjoy but it’s shown in only one house, keep scrolling and you’ll find the rest of the houses as well. I included 4 of every house-specific wallpaper option.
I also put together house-specific wallpaper posts. If you want something that’s for your house only, check these out, or keep scrolling through this post for general Harry Potter wallpaper.
P.S.: If you’re not sure which house you’re in, this is the best online quiz ever.
It’s much better than the official quizzes because it asks questions that are actually about your personality and values, then it gives you a rating for each house so you can see your exact personality breakdown.
You can also check check out the Pottermore quiz here which is the “official” quiz from Universal, but I don’t find the questions to be as accurate.
To save any wallpaper option, simply hold the picture down on your phone and click “save to library.” You can then go into your settings and select a lock scree and/or a home screen.
Harry Potter Wallpaper For Your Phone:
Here are my 65+ favorite Harry Potter wallpaper options for your phone. These should all work on iPhones or any other smartphone as well!
Keep in mind that you can use any of these wallpaper options for your home screen, your lock screen, or both.
I like to use different wallpaper backgrounds on each screen so I get to see two photos.
I also find that it’s easier to use a more “muted” home screen background so you can see your apps to click around, whereas I like using a brighter or more detailed wallpaper for my lock screen.
Hogwarts Express In Winter:
If the Hogwarts Express makes you feel happy and peaceful then you’ll love looking at this wallpaper every day.
I use this Harry Potter wallpaper quite a bit during the Christmas season, but I also love it during the later winter months!
The Snitch Grey Collage:
This is a simple Harry Potter wallpaper for you phone that I just love! It’s not too over the top (if you don’t want to scream Harry Potter from the front of your phone) but gives off a slight dark academia vibe.
This is also a great wallpaper for your home screen since you’ll easily be able to use your phone over this wallpaper.
If you’re a Slytherin at heart, this is the perfect wallpaper for you. It’s a cozy Harry Potter wallpaper for your phone that reminds me a lot of the school year!
Time Turner In Action:
This is a cool wallpaper option for those of you who really love the action of the films.
I’m a huge fan of the 3rd book and movie so I really love this wallpaper. It’s also relatively subtle if you want to keep it toned down!
Platform 9 3/4:
This is another train-related Harry Potter phone wallpaper. This is honestly one of the most magical parts of the whole world!
I typically set this wallpaper and my lock screen because it can be a bit hard to see your apps over all of the detail in the photo, but you can also mute the colors using an editing app (I usually use Tezza or Canva) so you can use it more easily.
The Boy Who Lived:
Here is another subtle Harry Potter wallpaper for your phone that looks really clean on the phone!
I like setting this wallpaper as my home screen.
This happy Hogwarts wallpaper is good for every season.
Harry Potter Wallpaper Books:

Harry & Hedwig:
I love the owls in Harry Potter so this wallpaper is a special favorite of mine.
My favorite part (in the books and the movies alike) is when everyone is getting ready to hop on the train. It’s always in the happy beginning, before anything bad has happened, and reminds me a lot of childhood.
I love this Harry Potter wallpaper because it perfectly captures those feelings!
The Quidditch Pitch:
If you’re a Quidditch fan then this is the perfect wallpaper option for you.
Gringotts & The Dragon:
Okay, so this Harry Potter wallpaper isn’t technically from the movies, but it is from Universal Studios, which is close enough. It’s as realistic as it gets!
The Goblet Of Fire Cover:
This is another action wallpaper that is 100% perfect for fans of the movie.

The Marauders’ Map:
This is a more detailed Marauder’s Map Harry Potter wallpaper for your phone if you don’t mind having lots of intricacies on your wallpaper. I personally like using this for my lock screen so I can see it more clearly.

This is possibly my favorite Harry Potter wallpaper that features the Hogwarts Express.
The sorting hat is, in my opinion, one of the best parts of the books.
Okay, so this phone wallpaper isn’t technically Harry Potter, but it does remind me so much of British academic and the halls of Hogwarts.
Who wouldn’t love seeing the cozy common room everything they open their phone? this Harry Potter wallpaper is one of my favorites because it’s just so happy!
Everyone is obsessed with the Marauder’s generation right now, so this map is the perfect in-between since we’ll (sadly) probably never have a movie. I love how this map spans generations and plays such an integral part in Harry Potter.
If you really feel like you’re a Ravenclaw at heart then this crest Harry Potter wallpaper is for you.
Fans of the 4th book: this is your wallpaper! It reminds me simultaneously of the happiest times as well as the scariest.
I really love this crinkled paper Harry Potter wallpaper. It’s nice and muted, so it’s perfect for an iPhone background.
This is another academic wallpaper that is definitely what the halls of Howarts look like. Imagine going to school here!
This Harry Potter wallpaper is a drawing but it’s just so cool that I had to include it. Everything from the window panes to the owls is so authentic!
Hogwarts is just really amazing. Anyone else wish so badly that it was real?

This really is the classic Harry Potter wallpaper from book 7. It’s possibly my favorite quote of all time and it’s only one word.
This isn’t a shop from the actual movie, but it’s just so cute that I had to include it. This shop reminds me a lot of Diagon Alley and is the perfect Harry Potter wallpaper for your lock screen!

How cozy does this scene look? There’s honestly nothing better than the first book. I love how muted this Harry Potter wallpaper is; it makes it easy to use on either my lock screen or home screen.
If you’re a Ravenclaw at heart then you’ll enjoy having the house’s keywords as your background. There’s nothing more inspirational than opening your phone to see the keywords you hope to embody.
This is for all of the Slytherins out there! It’s mysterious, a little evil, and super cool. Save it to your phone for when you really feel like using it.
If you personally embody or just really love the Slytherin keywords then this wallpaper is for you. It never hurts to see the keywords you want to embody every time you open your phone.
I love the simplicity of this marble Harry Potter wallpaper. It’s great on a phone because it doesn’t create too much clutter! I especially like using it on my lock screen and have gotten a lot of compliments about it.
