Marc Bolan & Alan Warren's Home
Home to Marc for six to eight months in 1964 with Allen Warren
Location: Somerset House 79-81, Lexham Gardens

Warren recalled: He took over one of the bedrooms, a huge room, & he'd always sit in the same spot by the fireplace with his books & guitar... In the daytime, Marc would sit in the drawing room with the curtains closed & the light on.
For him, the night never ended & the day never started... Now listed as a Set of 13 flats/apartments known as: Somerset House 79-81, Lexham Gardens
