Roald Dahl's Studio
The home of author Roald Dahl and artist Euan Uglow.
Location: 8 Turnchapel Mews, Clapham
Description: Turnchapel Mews, an exclusive cobbled courtyard, was once home to acclaimed author Roald Dahl and also esteemed contemporary artist Euan Uglow.
The famed children's author, Dahl, wrote some of his most famous books including The Witches and Matilda here in the ground floor flat directly underneath number 8 in 1982, following the publication of one of his greatest novels, The BFG. He lived on here until his death in 1990.
British painter Euan Uglow bought here in 1958, converting one of the mews homes across the cobbles into his private studio, and where he completed some of his most notable works. He once said It is difficult for me to function anywhere else than in my house studio.
