December 5: Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

I’ve stuck to real world places this week (although, of course they’re all from SFF novels), so these are all places you really could visit — although in a couple of cases your timing might be a little out.

  1. All Souls is BEAUTIFUL. I’ve never been inside because it’s difficult to get in, but I’ve walked past it countless times on my way to study in the Radcliffe Camera and even looking through the gate is a breathtaking view.

  2. I love how you used real places! Honestly, I like it so much better than fictional places because you can actually visit them. πŸ˜‰
    I’ve been to Versailles and King’s Cross and it was so wonderful! I wasn’t really into books back then, so I’m a little sad I didn’t enjoy the bookish side of it more, hehe!

    1. Haha! I’ve been to Kings Cross and I love that they’ve really embraced the platform 9 3/4 thing. I loved Versailles too, but at the time I didn’t have a particular book in mind either.


  3. This is so cool!

    I am a fan of fictional settings, but if places from our own world are mentioned, it’s exciting as well, cause you ACTUALLY can go there πŸ˜€

    I’d love to visit Versailles and Egypt and I’ve been to Ho Chi Minh, but only the airport. Would like to visit Vietnam again properly. I didn’t even know Artemis Fowl played there, that’s awesome!
