This book tours the places that captured the minds of our most enduring and popular literary figures and the landscapes in which their characters walked.
Both a wonderful bedside companion and indispensable travel guide, every location is brought gloriously to life with anecdote and incident: from Wordsworth's Lake District to Dickens's London, Robert Louis Stevenson's Edinburgh to Dylan Thomas's Wales; and the places that inspired children's authors from AA Milne to Beatrix Potter, Dick Francis to JK Rowling.
Compiled with the full support of the tourist boards of England, Scotland and Wales, the book is lavishly illustrated with over 600 colour pictures and regional maps, and has an extensive gazetteer of museums and houses open to the public.
