London's Smallest House

London's Smallest House

The smallest house in London, only 3 feet wide at its smallest.

Location: 10 Hyde Park Place, Marble Arch

Description: Now part of Tyburn Convent, this building is 3 feet 6 inches wide. One theory for its existence is that it blocked a public right of way to serve as a watch house overlooking the old St George's graveyard - extremely popular with bodysnatchers in the 18th Century!

With the ground floor consisting of nothing more than an alleyway behind the front door and the first floor just a tiny bathroom.

It was built in 1805, and was damaged by a bomb in 1941.

Lewis Grant Wallace was the first and only tenant.
