Taylor Swift mania is well and truly sweeping the country ahead of the singer’s arrival in June for her huge career-spanning tour.

The singer will be bringing The Eras Tour to Edinburgh, Liverpool, Cardiff and London next month, which will feature performances from songs across her 11 studio albums - all the way from her self-titled 2006 debut up to the recently-released The Tortured Poets Department.

The tour, which has lasted close to three hours in some cases since beginning in America last year, will see fans travel from across the country, and beyond, to get a chance to see the singer live in person.

But some Swifties have been keen to take their fandom an extra step further by either designing their properties with inspiration from the singer in mind - and you can stay in a bunch of them thanks to their listings on sites like Airbnb. There's also places situated right near to locations mentioned by Taylor in her songs, and even some where she has stayed herself.

As Wales Online first reported, fans could decide to take a trip to Florida, like Taylor’s song of the same title from her most-recent album, or they could choose to live their Forever Winter fantasy in Iceland, as inspired by her Red album.

Amanda Cupples, General Manager for the UK and Northern Europe at Airbnb, said: “A huge part of what we do at Airbnb is offer unforgettable travel experiences that tap into the parts of culture people love the most. Whether that be musicians, TV shows, or films."

She added: "We’re seeing the ‘passion tourism’ trend rise across the board, and Taylor Swift is no different. When tickets for the UK leg of the Eras Tour went on sale last July, searches for Airbnbs in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Liverpool during the concert dates increased by 337%, compared with searches for those dates the previous month.

"With people willing to travel further afield to celebrate their fandom, we hope our curated list of extraordinary stays help bring Taylor’s iconic Eras set list to life.” Below is a look at several Taylor Swift-inspired stays on Airbnb around the world.”

Other Airbnb listings include a three-bedroom apartment in Camden, which could give fans a chance to live out their own ‘London Boy’ era, whilst a Brooklyn townhouse will be perfect for those who can’t stop listening to Coney Island from the evermore album.
