Where in the UK was Dylan Thomas inspired to write Under Milk Wood? In which area of Britain was Bram Stoker's Dracula set?

There's a new geography-based quiz that's set to challenge your literary knowledge. And be warned, it's addictive.

Powered by Travelzoo, the quiz comes as the travel experts seek to celebrate Literary Britain.

Experts have compiled a guide to the best things to do and see in and around literary hotspots such as the Yorkshire Moors, the Lake District, London, Oxford, Cornwall and more.

From Poldark and Wuthering Heights, to Sherlock Holmes, Dracula and Tess of the d’Urbervilles, there's a guide to the area that inspired each British literary classic.

But back to the quiz.
