From Count Dracula's residence in Piccadilly to Platform 9℗¾, an exhaustively researched guide to London's fictional landmarks. All of London's fictional clubs, pubs, restaurants, houses, and streets that have been made famous in the works of the likes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming, Bram Stoker, and Evelyn Waugh are featured in this exhaustively researched volume. Listed geographically and alphabetically, the entries each provide a description of the location, its place in literature, and its inspiration. This book explores the city from the viewpoints of the writers who have used it as a stage for their plots, of their characters, and of the readers whose imagination is fired by the knowledge that they are standing outside the home of David Copperfield on the Strand, or a haunt of Holmes or Wooster. From Fleming's legendary Blades Club in Mayfair, which made appearances in both Moonraker and Goldfinger, to Waugh's bohemian Shepheard's Hotel from Vile Bodies which was based on the celebrated Cavendish Hotel, this guide will appeal to all lovers of classic fiction set in the great city.
