Imagine a June Austen novel, that’s how beautiful Bath is. It has strong influence on many of her works including Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. Austen had links to this beautiful Georgian town and she has beautifully captured them in her works.

The beautiful lakes, rugged mountains and picturesque hills of the Lake District have inspired several poets and writers. You could say, English literature wouldn’t be the same without a scene from this marvellous place full of awe inspiring sights. William Wordsworth, Lord Tennyson, Sir Walter Scott have all searched inspiration here. Other poets include Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey and Robert Lovell who looked over river Great to seek some inspiration.

#3.  Kent

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.

#4.  Dorset

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”.

#5.  St. Ives

Virginia Woolf spent her summers here until the age of 13 and she cherished those memories forever. She described the place as warm, humming and sunny with the gardens giving the murmur of bees. The family’s colonial style villa has now been transformed into holiday apartments. Lined with fishermen’s cottages, cobbled streets, gift shops, galleries and overlooking the Porthminster beach, this is a sight to behold.

#6.  North Yorkshire

From Norton Conyers to Whitby Abbey, North Yorkshire has no dearth of literary inspiration. Norton Conyers with its striking Dutch gables has hosted the likes of Charles I, James II and Charlotte Bronte. This is what served as inspiration for our beloved Jane Eyre. Moreover, the imposing Whitby Abbey played its part in the creation of Dracula, a gothic masterpiece by Bram Stoker.
