Graham's First London Pad
Monty Python Legend lived on this street in 1967
Location: Prince of Wales Terrace, Kensington, W8
Description: Graham Chapman was the quiet, pipe-smoking tweed-jacketed Python who qualified as a doctor - but his calm demeanour belied his true anarchic nature as, more than any other Python, he lived the complete lunacy of the show.
And so to this road in Kensington in 1967...
He rented a room off Humphrey Barclay at the 13 pounds a week flat that Humphrey rented from his father.
Humphrey's sister moved out and Graham moved in - and Barclay was kept as 'in the dark' as most of Graham's other friends about his relationship with David Sherlock at the time.
But can you tell Shady which number Graham lived at?
