Novelist and poet Collin Kelley, who has visited the UK annually for the past 15 years, shares ten Literary Hot Spots in London on AOL Travel. The bookish sites range from the place where Geoffrey Chaucer’s pilgrims set out in The Canterbury Tales to the abodes of Sherlock Holmes and James Bond.

The story’s main characters live in a haunted house next to Highgate.
