They travel to Diagon Alley by Floo Powder. They explain to Harry that he has to stand in the fireplace, say clearly where he wants to go and then drop the powder in the fire, at which point they were be teleported in a whirl of fire. Harry tries it but doesn't say "Diagon Alley" clear enough. He instead comes out in a deserted shop filled with Dark objects. Harry hides as Draco Malfoy and his father visit the shop. Mr Malfoy has come to sell some potentially incriminating objects, concerned that the Ministry might raid his mansion. After he leaves, Harry escapes the shop. He is then found by Hagrid.

Harry has an enjoyable stay with the Weasleys for the rest of the summer. As school approaches, they are sent a list of new books to buy. It appears that the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher seems to be a big fan of Gilderoy Lockhart. They get a letter from Hermione who offers to meet with them in Diagon Alley when they buy their school books.

Hagrid reveals that Harry materialised in Knockturn Alley, a "dodgy place" that joins onto Diagon Alley. He leads Harry out and he reunites with the Weasleys, who are joined by Hermione and her parents. After a session of shopping, they arrive in Flourish and Blotts bookshop. There is a book-signing by Gilderoy Lockhart, a ShamelessSelfPromoter wizard who has become a celebrity by writing about his travels and battles with Dark magic. Lockhart arranges to have his photo taken with Harry and announces that he will be the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts.

Malfoy runs into Ron and insults him as usual. Their fathers meet and Mr Malfoy insults Mr Weasley for being poor (holding up one of Ginny's second-hand textbooks) and befriending Muggles like Hermione's parents. Mr Weasley then breaks into a fight with Mr Malfoy, which is only stopped when Hagrid intervenes. They leave and return to the Burrow (in Harry's case, successfully this time).
