Kenny Everett's Flat
This is where Kenny Everett lived the high life.
Location: Bristol House, 67 Lower Sloane Street, Chelsea, SW1W 8DD
Description: This block of flats near Sloane Square were once home to pioneering Radio 1 DJ Dave Cash, who also recommended it to the anarchic comedy legend Kenny Everett.
In his autobiography, The Custard Stops At Hatfield, he says One night we were tripping in my little flat in Lower Sloane Street, and the LSD was making all the good bits about life great and all the bad bits even worse.
