Mozart's First Symphony

It was here that Mozart wrote his 1st symphonies, aged just 9.

Location: 180 Ebury Street, Belgravia, London

Description: Wolfgang's father Leopold moved the family here from Paris in 1764, at the time an open countryside with grazing sheep and market gardens.

It was once called FiveFields Row, and it was here that Wolfgang, aged 8, wrote his first two symphonies.

Leopold wrote in a letter: It has one of the most beautiful views in the world. Wherever I turn my eyes, I only see gardens and in the distance the finest castles; and the house in which I am living has a lovely garden.
