For many book lovers, losing themselves in a fictional world is a guilty pleasure. We all sometimes wish we could magic ourselves into the books we’re reading to escape from reality. While some fictional places are dark and dangerous, others are charming and inviting.

Books can offer us an escape from reality in a variety of ways. For some people, it’s simply a matter of getting lost in the story and the world the author has created. For others, books can provide a different perspective on the world. They can offer a chance to see things from a new angle, or to explore different cultures without ever leaving home. And for some people, books offer a safe space to explore difficult topics and emotions. We can read about characters who are going through tough times and feel like we’re not alone, or we can explore our own feelings about difficult topics in a safe and fictional setting.

It would be amazing to be able to visit fictional places in books. Each place has its own unique charm, and I’m sure it would be an unforgettable experience to be able to visit them in person.

Here are ten fictional places that we would love to visit:

Not only is Hogwarts a beautiful and magical place, but it’s also home to some of the most memorable characters in literature. It would be incredible to meet Dumbledore, McGonagall and all of our other favourite characters in person. Not to mention, we could take classes in Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions – how fun would that be?

the hobbit - fictional places we'd like to visitThe Shire

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

The Shire is a fictional place from JRR Tolkien’s book, The Hobbit. It’s a charming and idyllic place where the inhabitants are simple and content. Plus, the hobbits know how to throw a party with amazing fireworks and food!

Being able to visit the Shire would be wonderful because it would be like stepping into a different world. It would be wonderful to spend time in the Shire’s peaceful and serene surroundings, and it would be a great escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I don’t think we’ll be going far beyond the Shire however, Middle Earth seems like a dangerous place to just be wandering around. Don’t even get me started on Mordor. It’s awful this time of year.
