This video shows where to get the first of the gold bricks in Lego Harry Potter:
#1 – Location: Bathroom Hallway
To find this Gold Brick, you’ll want to follow along the upper path (use RD). Eventually you’ll come to a glass case. Allow the AI partner to clear the pieces out of the way. Drag the case out and then smash it. Now follow the snail that appears. And you’ll have yourself another Gold Brick to add to your growing collection.
#2 – Location: Charms Underground Area Left (RD Required. Use on Locker)
Note that there is a game-halting glitch in this room if you try to leave when the game is autosaving (via the dragon). To avoid this enter this room as the very last area you enter in the game. So you might want to keep this as the last Gold Brick as well. You’ll earn this Gold Brick by building the Dragon. After jumping near him and going back up, you’ll earn a Gold Brick for your escape.
#3 – Location: Charms Underground Area Right (Key character required)
This Gold Brick is easily found in the second room after you exit the first area. All you need to do is use LM on the vines (that are holding onto the claws you see on the wall). Do this and you’ll earn this Gold Brick.
#4 – Location: Clock Tower
To earn this Gold Brick, you simply need to attack the painting on the right side. After doing so, pick up the purple-colored Gear and place it with the other Gears. You’ll be rewarded by the bell with another Gold Brick to add to your growing collection. Note: This Gold Brick can be glitchy and may not appear.

#6, 7, 8, 9 – Location: Diagon Alley
To find these Gold Bricks you will need to use RD on the lock that you find in the bar. After that, head down the stairs and you’ll find four statues. You need to build these statues by beating all of the levels in each episode. There is one statue corresponding to each episode, so four statues total. In addition to beating the level you must get True Wizard status as well. Once the statue is built you’ll get a Gold Brick. So you can get one Gold Brick for each statue for a total of four Gold Bricks.
#10 – Location: Dorm Hallway
To find this Gold Brick, all you need to do is hit each of the Hogwarts House banners in the Dorm Hallway to knock them down.
