Literary Places I’d Love to Visit in the U.K.

I recently read and loved A Treason of Thorns by Laura E Weymouth, released in the US this September and in the UK early next year. The Light Between Worlds was one of my favourite books of 2018 and Treason of Thorns has the same lyrical prose and a similarly enchanting story, cementing the author as one of my favourites. 

The story centres around Burleigh House in Cornwall, one of the Great Houses whose magic governs the well-being of England. The powerfully evocative setting was definitely one of my favourite elements and has inspired me to choose my top 5 bookish places I’d love to visit in the UK.


After reading Daphne du Maurier, one place I’ve wanted to visit for years is Cornwall. Jamaica Inn and Frenchman’s Creek had me longing to explore the coves used by smugglers and to learn more about its dark history. 


Whitby Abbey - Dracula

Dracula is one of my favourite books so I’d love to visit the gothic Whitby Abbey one day. It’s just over two hours from where I live so there’s really no excuse why I haven’t yet.

The Crystal Cave

I read the Merlin trilogy by Mary Stewart years ago and loved the rich descriptions of South Wales. I’ve never been to Wales but it always looks so beautiful and fascinating to explore.



I’ve never visited Oxford but after reading A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and Northern Lights by Philip Pullman I’m eager to see this location in person.


There are so many places I want to visit in Scotland but one of them is Inverness and the surrounding area. When I finished Outlander I made a list of all the sights I wanted to see and would love to finally visit them one day.

Are there any literary locations in the UK you’d love to visit?
