From scribbling away in a tiny bookshop above the spires of Paris to roaming the wild and open lands of Yorkshire – finding a creative flash can often be inspired by your surroundings. It’s no secret that some of the world’s greatest visionaries – be they artists or writers, turned to place and setting to set the tone for their greatest works. So, here are a few favorite creative spaces we recommend turning to to find that final piece of inspiration.

Shakespeare’s & Co, Paris

Facing the flowing Seine and the famous spires of Notre Dame, this unobtrusive little bookshop boasts a grand literary history. A firm favorite for Anais Nin, Ginsberg, Burroughs, Henry Miller, and James Baldwin when visiting Paris, now the shop pulls in an American in Paris vibe. Upstairs is a fabulous space for penning your own masterpiece, with cozy corners hidden behind towers of antique books – the inspiration comes thick and fast.

Lumb Bank, Yorkshire

The area of Yorkshire is now called the Bronte Way, thanks to its famous inhabitants of the past. Not only is this area the setting for Wuthering Heights (you can even visit the spot rumored to be the place where Cathy and Heathcliff meet at Top Withens), but it was also the home of British Poet Laureate Ted Hughes and American talent Sylvia Plath. At Lumb Bank, the Ted Hughes Foundation, you can even book weekend courses and escape your hectic life to finally write that book of poetry.

Coyocan, Mexico

Awash with bright color and the home of Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera, this neighborhood in Mexico City is one of the most inspiring places in the world. When you tire of sipping cerveza and people watching in the pretty squares you can visit the childhood home of Frida Kahlo and see her untouched bedroom and a glorious selection of her best paintings. You can also wander the area and find the house where she and Diego hid Leon Trotsky. Inspired by the famous work and tangled stories of place, you are sure to want to put brush to paper.
