About this deal

It reminds me of how excited I was every time I saw a princess in a movie with a beautiful palace, and how I wished I could live in a palace like that one day. The Hundred Acre Wood, Galleon's Lap and Poohsticks Bridge existed not only in the stories and poems but were part of the real world surrounding the Milne home at Cotchford Farm. Best time to visit: In April and May, when the park is at its lushest due to mild weather and more rain. What makes it magical: Photographers and hopeless romantics will fall head over heels for the Tunnel of Love in Ukraine. Bask in a fairytale: The Latrán is a charming medieval neighborhood in Český Krumlov with incredible Renaissance and Gothic architecture.

These original toys (except for Roo, who was lost) are now in the possession of the New York Public Library, (which I think is a shame – I’m sure they should really be in the Forest), but the places where the stories take place are based on the actual locations where Christopher Robin played, and you can still visit those places today. The stunning French region of Alsace is home to several provincial villages that inspired this fairytale. Cross a glass canyon bridge: There are many ways to experience the fantastical landscapes of Zhangjiajie. You will find memorabilia, souvenirs and information about the Winnie-the-Pooh locations and the famous Pooh Sticks Bridge. Another Bavarian gem is Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a picture-perfect medieval walled town full of colorful houses.I'm a freelance journalist and blogger specialising in family travel with teenagers, trips when parents manage to travel without their kids, and 50+ travel. Take a tour of its preserved rooms, admire dreamy views from its towers, and see the gold and silver in its treasury. Not at all a "behind the scenes" take on Winnie-the-pooh, but rather a multi-faceted meditation on a child's relationship with his father and with his works. What makes it magical: Home to some of the most otherworldly landscapes and houses on the planet, Matera is a mystical cave town built entirely out of rocky mountains.

Sometimes reality became fiction, as Milne observed and wrote about his son and his teddy bear; and sometimes fiction became reality as Christopher heard what his father had written and wanted to play it out.With its winding river and centuries-old neighborhoods, Český Krumlov is one of the most magical European fairy towns.

What makes it magical: Step into a blue dream in the medieval town of Chefchaouen, one of the most colorful and unique places on earth. Stroll down the magical Arlington Row in Bibury, and wander through Bourton-on-the-Water, the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’. Best time to visit: From March through May, or October-November to avoid the crowds of the summer months. This fairytale spot near Klevan is a stretch of railway totally encapsulated by tree leaves, creating a glowing green tunnel you can walk through.Finish this fairytale tour with a Dubrovnik Cable Car ride for the most magical sunset of your life. Although the pace of this book is slow the descriptions of the farm and Christopher’s relationships with his parents is absorbing. Note that the tunnel is still an active railway, so be sure to avoid the train that comes through three times daily. This German state is home to the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which actually inspired the iconic Disneyland castle. Hartfield isn't just known for its connection to Winnie the Pooh - it has also played host to musical royalty.

I had been given a bird book for Easter (Easter 1934: I still have the book) and with its help I had made my first discovery. Best time to visit: From December through March for the most pleasant weather and strongest waterfall flow. I've lived and worked in Italy and Spain and am now based in rural south-east England with my husband, adoptive and birth kids and our dog.What makes it magical: Just off the Ring Road along Iceland’s Golden Circle is Seljalandsfoss, a magnificent waterfall and one of the most stunning fairytale locations in Europe. Note that Jaipur can get uncomfortably hot between April and October, with temperatures easily reaching 106°F / 41°C in May. Originally a deer hunting forest, Ashdown Forest is now a free public area of heathland and woodland spread over 6,500 acres. Best time to visit: From November through February to avoid the unbearable scorching heat and to enjoy dry, sunny weather. Get lost in a romantic legend: The picturesque Predjama Castle is perched high up within the mouth of a massive cave.
