Meander through the Vale of Glamorgan with Dannie Abse on his 'zestful' unpeopled bus, a magical tour, 'terrific with light'. 

Travel to Ireland's Inishtrahull with Matthew Sweeney, then check out that UFO in his childhood back garden in Donegal! And do watch out for the 'Sneezer'. 

Soar above Dublin's River Liffey with Celia de Fréine. Dip your toe into the sea at Carraroe, Co Galway, and Newtownards, Co Down. 

Hear the whisper of 'the long sea's dolphined breath' at Criccieth, with Alison Brackenbury at Cardigan Bay. Join her at July's medieval Tewkesbury Fair. 

Marvel at Patience Agbabi's unveiling of the 'bubbling syrup' below stairs, as she deconstructs the scaffolding of Harewood House: 'Stately home of sugar'. 

Share Laurence Binyon's source of inspiration -- in September 1914, he walked the north Cornish cliff path, writing the lines we hear each year on Remembrance Day. 

WORDS IN AIR, the unique poetry-in-place app, pinpoints for you the source of inspiration of 76 poems, contemporary and classic. Enjoy each poem in the place which inspired it, or from anywhere you happen to be. The ideal travelling companion.
