Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy arrive in Godric’s Hollow

"Well there's no time for a tour - we have a murderous witch to save the world from…."
-- Scorpius Malfoy (CC4.3)

Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy arrive in Godric’s Hollow

31 October 1981

Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy arrive in Godric’s Hollow. Albus has never visited previously, although his father Harry had offered several times to take him there. Scorpius shows him some highlights and they see his grandparents Lily and James Potter with baby Harry (CC4.3).

Timeline Notes

The day after the previous event - 31st October 1981 - Albus and Scorpius having travelled from Aviemore in Scotland to Godric's Hollow

Commentary

Notes

This event takes place during the Voldemort Final timeline, as described in the essay "Albus Potter and the lesson in Quantum Mechanics" by Nick Moline.

Scorpius Malfoy gets very excited when he sees Bathilda Bagshot: "Oh my, that’s her. Wow. Squeak. My geekness is a-quivering" (CC4.3).

How Albus and Scorpius get to Godric's Hollow is not explained, the location of the village being a matter of conjecture (West Country and Wales being two alternatives). If they took a train, they would have really needed to have Muggle money. Being underage, they can't use magic outside of school to hide themselves inside train carriages either.
