All around England there are locations associated with our literary greats that make exciting holidays and days out for families and will pique interest from bookworms young and old. From Oxfordshire’s Alice in Wonderland connections, to The Famous Five’s Dorset to Jane Austen’s Hampshire and the many locations which doubled as Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. We want to know where you want to go!
At the #BookEngland Twitter chat, sponsored by VisitEngland, we’ll be sharing stories and providing inspiration for your family, whether that includes little readers who love Peppa Pig and the Gruffalo or teens interested in the mysteries of Arthur Conan Doyle. Come share your favourite literary getaways or your wish and plan for your next great family holiday or day out!
VisitEngland is celebrating a Year of Literary Heroes with a new interactive map that makes it easier than ever to discover the attractions, sights and destinations that have inspired our favourite books! Visit www.visitengland.com/literaryheroes to find the Literary England that your family will love!
