Email for information about this item.


Literary Landscapes is for readers, writers, romantics, and lovers of all things literary, but above all, it will be a source of special pleasure to the tourist of Great Britain and Ireland.

Walk alongside Jane Austen or one of her characters on the streets of Bath, or wend your way along the River Liffey in Dublin with James Joyce's Leopold Bloom. Take a rowboat ride with Lewis Carroll on the Thames just as he and Alice Liddell once did, inspiring the much beloved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In Wales, the poetry of Dylan Thomas will accompany you as you explore the Uplands of Swansea and see the places he knew as a boy and young man. The estimated length of the walks and their difficulty level are provided.
