Book Alive! Storied Spots You Can Actually Visit

Trending Now


Take a page from your kid’s book (literally!) when planning your next family trip. Using your little bookworm’s favorite tome as inspiration for travel, it’s easy to follow in the footsteps of Eloise, Hugo, Ramona and more. Flip through the album below to find eight amazing spots straight out of a storybook.

London, England

The city of fog is filled with literary hotspots for both young and old. Shop in the only store dedicated to a bear from darkest Peru at (where else?) Paddington Station. Discover the magic of Harry Potter by taking the Muggle Walking Tour, visiting the Warner Bros. Studio and landing at King’s Cross Station in search of Platform 9 ¾. The kids won’t be able to fly over Big Ben but you’ll be able to spot Peter Pan in statue form over at Kensington Gardens, and parents can keep the magic alive by swiping smartphones on a nearby plaque to receive a call back from Peter himself!
