Fred Perry lived here



This is where Fred Perry lived when he won his first Wimbledon.

Location: 223 Pitshanger Lane, Ealing, W5 1RG

Description: This is where Britain's most celebrated tennis player Fred Perry, lived with his family from 1918 until he got married in 1935 and moved to the USA.

While living here he won his first Wimbledon title and then retained it twice in 1934/35/36 - a record no other Brit has lived up to since.

He famously put his Wimbledon success down to being at home here and in bed by 10pm every night during the championships.

His name also lives on because of the sportswear business he started in his own name.
