To tie in with my whiz bang tour of London book spots over on Clover's lovely blog feature for the British Book Month I wanted to show you the full feature and photos from my Clockwork Angel day tour that I actually did last October with Leanne from District YA and Rebecca (my fangirl cousin in crime!) If you've read her previous books from The Mortal Instruments series then this book as the 1st in The Infernal Devices trilogy is gonna be a new favourite. The characters and dramatic element of the city itself was so wonderful for myself as a neighbour as such to the city and someone that visits 'up town' a fair bit I felt a thrill each time somewhere I knew was mentioned but as it was sent in the Victorian era it was like seeing the city I know in a new way too.
So after finding out that the main Institute building where the Shadowhunters live and work in the novel was based on an actual building we decided to aim for the St. Bride's Church just off Fleet Street to see this amazing building and relive the book to an extent.
Looking out to Blackfriar's Bridge aka Jem's fav spot. Well I hope that was Blackfriar's cause my sense of direction isn't always the best though I should point out that it was better than my phone's GPS map :-P
So we had hit Fleet Street via The Strand, St, Bride's and Blackfriars and the Thames. Hopefully soon we can make a trip to Highgate where the Dark Sister's second location was and some of the other book's hot spots!
and here is the cliche London sight seeing photo
