Tell us about a literary destination in the UK or Europe – to win a £200 holiday voucher | Travel


This year marks the 25th anniversary of World Book Day, a celebration of books and reading celebrated in 100 countries worldwide. It is usually an opportunity for young bibliophiles to become their favourite book character for the day, but it is also a chance for older book lovers to visit literary destinations associated with favourite authors. So whether it is a hop across the channel to see Montreuil-sur-Mer, where Victor Hugo found inspiration for Les Misérables, or whether you are staying closer to home for a visit to Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, we would like to hear about your favourite literary destinations across the UK and Europe.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
