Robert Falcon Scott lived here
The house where Antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott lived.
Location: 56 Oakley Street, Chelsea, London
Description: When Scott returned from the Antarctic in 1904 he moved the family to a rented house at 56 Oakley Street. This four-story Victorian terrace stands three doors north of Cheyne Walk, where at No 133 Scott's future wife had a three-room flat.
Outside is an LCC Blue Plaque, unveiled on 19th September 1935, that reads: Robert Falcon Scott Antarctic Explorer (1868-1912) Lived here.
Notes at Scott Polar Research Institute suggest that Scott wrote at least part of The Voyage of the Discovery here (a claim also made for Markham's 21 Eccleston Square house).
Scott stayed here until 1908.
