Literary Britain and Ireland features more than 100 locations associated with the world's leading authors. From the tower at Sissinghurst where Vita Sackville-West wrote her books and the gardens that inspired Beatrix Potter's children's stories in the Lake District, to the Suffolk coastline that provides the setting for many of P.D. James's novels and the fictional platform at Kings Cross where J.K. Rowling put Harry Potter on a train to Hogwarts, this book is an essential guide to Britain and Ireland's most fascinating, beautiful and inspiring houses, gardens, cafes, railway stations and so much more. Beautifully illustrated, each entry includes: a short essay putting the location or city in its literary and historical context; key authors and locations associated with the place under discussion and useful contact details and travel link.
