Classic literature floorplans


The most pretentious answer we've heard to "Where are you going for Christmas?" was easily, "Into my favourite book". If we'd rolled our eyes any harder it would have detached a retina.

But we know what that immensely tedious individual was alluding to - there's nothing quite like escaping into the pages of your favourite novel, losing yourself in a world already familiar to your memory.

To spur us on our way to literary escapism, terrysfabrics.co.uk have plotted out the homes of some of classic literature's most famous abodes. Allow memories of GCSE English lessons to come flooding back as you navigate the halls of Jane Eyre's Thornfield Hall and Wuthering Height's Thrushcross Grange.

We're off to dig out our old copy of Dracula and slip into a high-brow holiday.
