It’s no secret that the family tree of history’s greatest writers is rooted in England.

Shakespeare, Milton, Chaucer, Dickens, whoever can be credited for Beowulf—on it goes. See why Jane Austen despised Bath, and what giants like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien found on Oxford’s idyllic campus. In England, there’s a story everywhere, and you have the chance to write your own.
