This is the place that forged literary geniuses such as Charles Dickens and Geoffrey Chaucer who is often called the ‘Father of English Literature’. Even today, Chaucer is counted amongst one of the greatest poets of the Middle Ages. Retrace the steps of his most famous work, The Canterbury Tales, from London to Cathedral.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Thomas Hardy can be counted amongst the best for his vivid description of sceneries and 19th century rural Britain in his most famous works, Far From The Madding Crowd and Tess of the D’Urbervilles. And not to forget Lyme Regis with its backdrop of blue hills. With its Jurassic Coast, Lyme Regis has a mystique aura which was aptly put by Jane Austen “a very strange stranger he must be, who doesn’t see charms in the immediate environs of Lyme”.
