Literary Locations: A New Series

So I've decided to start a new series on my blog, one that will be updated as and when it can be. Living in Britain I'm lucky enough to have access to quite a lot of literary places, whether they're houses of famous authors, such as the Bront√ęs or Jane Austen, or places that have been used while filming adaptations.

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to visit even more places, and I thought it'd be fun to document what I get up to on my blog - not only so I can share these places with you, particularly those of you who live outside the UK, but also to encourage me to go out and see these places for myself!

Why am I only mentioning this new series now? Because I'm off to Cornwall at the end of this month, and I'm intending to visit Jamaica Inn while I'm there! I read Jamaica Inn earlier this year - and reviewed it here - and can't say no to the opportunity to go and see the real Jamaica Inn for myself.

With a history of smuggling, Jamaica Inn is still a working pub. You can stay over night and even celebrate your wedding here, or visit the Inn's own smuggling museum, and there are even Murder Mysteries and Ghost Hunts to participate in. It sounds like such a cool place, so look out for my post on the real Jamaica Inn in August!

  1. Looking forward to your post, I've been to Jamaica Inn and watched the series but still not read the book! I should really get on that. Cornwall's great for literary stuff with the King Arthur connection as well :) Hope you enjoy your trip!

  2. What a cool idea for a series! That pub/inn looks beautiful as well. I've never been to Cornwall, but I visited a similar looking place in Norfolk earlier this year. There's something really lovely about staying in smaller family owned places with character!
