Top Ten Tuesday: Literary Destinations I Would Love to Visit

Top Ten Tuesday (originally created by The Broke and the Bookish) is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl

I’ve done a similar post series that just focused on the amazing bookstores you can visit in the US and around the world (follows the links to read part 1, part 2, and part 3). This post, however, will be about general literary destinations that apparently any book lover must visit.

I’ve actually had this post sitting in my drafts for quite some time yet never finished it. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday seemed the perfect prompt to finally publish this post.

I’m sure that there are plenty more places that will end up on my list in the future, but for now, this is my list!

The Places

Shakespeare and Co. Bookstore – Paris, France

Hay Castle Bookshop, Hay-on-Wye, UK

The Library Hotel, NYC

The Globe, London

The Sherlock Holmes Museum, London

Ashdown Forest (where AA Milne’s Christopher Robin played), UK

The Elephant House, Edinburgh, Scotland

Borgo Pass/ Hotel Dracula, Romania

Hobbiton, New Zealand

The Bookstore and Get Lit Wine Bar, Lenox, MA


I wish I had known about the places in NYC and London (okay I knew about the Globe), though I wish I knew that these were places that I should take time to go see. I suppose that means that I just have to travel back there again.

Have you been to any of these places? Which ones do you want to visit?

  1. Such a great list! I can recommend the Elephant House cos it’s a great coffee shop (though I think it’s fair to forewarn you the only HP part of it is the graffiti in the toilet) And the globe is cool! I definitely want to go to Hotel Dracula!

  2. Back in April I went to Paris and visited Shakespeare and Company! It was one of the first things that I put on my must visit list when planning my trip. The Globe in London was also very neat!

    I wrote my ~Top Ten~ on a singular place this week — I visited the Trinity College library back in April!
