The Lit Trip Advisor: travelling the world through fiction and poetry….

Literature has the power to take its readers to other worlds, people and cultures. World literature is especially powerful in offering its readers new social, cultural and geographical encounters. The Lit Trip Advisor welcomes you into a world of many different literary adventures. Step inside and start your journey.

Do you fancy a quiet break in the tropics? Or a spiritual journey through the Himalayas? Why not work in a stopover city break in Cairo? Or for those of you looking for an adventure holiday – a trek through the jungle?

The Lit Trip Advisor helps find the perfect ‘Lit Trip’ for you, your friends or your family. Travel alone or in a group, you will all leave the advisor with a personalised ‘Lit Trip’ itinerary – inspirational reads to take you to places yet undiscovered!

What people say about The Lit Trip Advisor

Thank you for the Sunday afternoon journey! It was beautiful and unexpected… just like travel should be.

I went to Cairo and it was really fun.

Really interesting, a lovely idea and a great way to discover new books from around the world.

Taken to South Africa and stepped out of the van to find myself in London. Lovely.
