In Sky Garden, the heroine is curator of a quirky museum in Bloomsbury that is all about the Edwardian era. Researching what would have been in an Edwardian home and the attitudes that would have been on display was a lot of fun. Then, add in that the hero of Sky Garden designs an Edwardian-inspired roof garden above the museum, and you can see why my huge challenge was not to lose myself in research.
Here are some of the articles and sites I found:
In lighter reading, The Daily Mail has an article on re-creating your own Edwardian garden.
London’s Lost Rivers have nothing to do with Sky Garden, but I love this site, and the history.
There are a number of reasons I sited the museum in Bloomsbury. Bloomsbury has name recognition, and it’s cool.
Finally, if you want to while away some time, you can check out the amazing sites of the UK National Trust.
