David Beckham grew up here
David Beckham used to live here on this very road
Location: 150 Norman Road, Leytonstone, E10
Description: Not many areas of London can lay claim to harbouring, nurturing and housing such a prestigious talent... well move over Gateshead and Gazza... and welcome Leytonstone and 'Golden Balls'.
Indeed this was the home of footballer David Beckham - you know - 'Becks'.
David is regarded as one of the most stylish men in the world and with wife Victoria in tow, the Beckham's lead the way in the fashion stakes.
He's also still a jolly good football player who along with those 'golden balls' can certainly stand tall in any dead ball situation.
Hey at least when he was living here he was probably a wee whipper-snapper without the entourage he's sure to have now.
Leytonstone - Beckham - Good Work.
