Map of Literary & Musical Houses of Britain and Ireland
Sigmund Freud once proclaimed that he had more books on archaeology than he had on psychology. In fact the bookcases in Freud’s study at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead are bursting at the seams with books on all different subjects. Freud was a voracious reader and was as much influenced by Shakespeare and Goethe as he was by Darwin.
Explore the houses open to the public that were once home to some of the finest writers and musicians in Britain and Ireland. This Illustrated map shows where to find the birthplaces, lifelong residences or retreats where artists found peace and inspiration.
