Adele Wrote Debut Album 19 Here
Once home to Adele and her Mum and where her career started
Location: 294 Norwood Road, SE27 9AF
Description: This was once the home of Adele - the 8 times Grammy winner (to date, 2012) - and where she wrote her debut album '19' released in 2008.
She went onto create '21' in 2011 which which saw massive commercial and critical success, and saw her clean up at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
Basically and to get straight to the point, she's extraordinary and probably worth more than the 8 Grammy's!
