Come and find out about London’s place in fantastic literature.

Throughout the 2,000 years of its history, London has been a place of myths and legends, from Boadicea being buried under the platforms of King’s Cross station to Harry Potter using those same
platforms to reach Hogwarts. Classes will discuss how these texts, from Victorian Gothic novels to the latest episodes of Doctor Who, engage with the city, and what it is in London that attracts
the interest of writers.
