ABOUT THIS TRAIL

At first glance, London may not seem like the obvious magical destination and the Thames certainly isn’t reminiscent of any enchanting forests you may find in Borneo. However, much of London’s charm, its allure, stems from classic tales and historical curiosities. A great story that captivates many started in the mind of a one C.S Lewis: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. C.S. Lewis began writing The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as a gift to his goddaughter, Lucy Barfield, in an attempt to provide a fairytale, during the distressing Second World War. Since then, Narnia has captivated the old and the young and has taught us that often magic can be found in the most unsuspecting of places. Tour Westminster, as we stop off to find a lion, a witch and a curious wardrobe and a few literary gems.
