Poet Dylan Thomas lived here

The Welsh poet Dylan Thomas's first London home.

Location: 5 Redcliffe Street, Earls Court, SW10 9DR

Description: Poet Dylan Thomas' (13 Nov 1934 - Jan 1935) first London address was here where he lived, as he wrote in a letter to a friend surrounded by 'poems, butter eggs and mashed potato.' He stayed here with friends from Swansea, the artists Fred Janes and Mervyn Levy.

After visiting London in 1933 from his home in Wales, and making several visits in the following 12 months, he decides to move closer to his publishers.

Whilst frequently returning to his parents at Cwmdonkin Drive, Dylan quickly became a prominent figure in the bohemian pubs and clubs of Fitzrovia, Soho and Chelsea.
