THE STRANGER'S GUIDE

STEP INSIDE THE BOOK

Once an ordinary house in an ordinary street, Talliston House and Gardens has been transformed into a series of inspiring locations, each set in a different time and place. Each room is the setting for a different chapter in the novel, allowing you to step from medieval tower rooms to New Orleans kitchens, visit sinister Scottish bedrooms and a cabin in the woods. 

 

Join award-winning author, John Tarrow, as you explore the rooms and gardens, hear passages from the book in the locations that inspired them and afterwards enjoy refreshments with other guests. For those who have read the novel, it's a fantastical way to enhance your enjoyment of the book. Or for those about to read, it's an unbeatable introduction to the fabulous locations contained in every chapter.
