Bookish Places I would love to visit

1. Shakespeare & Company Bookstore, Paris

This bookstore was established in 1951 and it is a must-see for booklovers. It is a beautiful and cozy book shop and cafe and if you visit at night you may even stumble across one of its many events.

2. Hay Castle Bookshop, Hay-on-Wye, Wales

In this picturesque town there are a multitude of bookshops worth the visit but specifically the open aired one at Hay Castle. The town is especially worth visiting during Hay Festival of Literature & Arts, held between May and June.

5. Georgian House Wizard Chambers, London 

This is a 5-star hotel with both rooms for muggles and wizards. The wizard chamber are however the main reason people stay. These rooms give Harry Potter the chance to sleep in a Hogwarts type dormitory.
