The Orphanage is the first Moment in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 13, The Secret Riddle.


'Where are we going?' Harry asked, as Dumbledore joined him at the front of the desk.

Seconds later his feet hit the firm ground, he opened his eyes and found that he and Dumbledore were standing in a bustling, old-fashioned London street.
