Home & office to the BBC Goon Show stars and comic enigma's.

Location: 9 Orme Court, W2

Description: It was at this very address where Spike Milligan, Eric Sykes, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson (of Tony Hancock fame) and many more... all resided and wove their comedy genius for us all to enjoy.

With visits from greats such as Peter Sellars and Harry Secombe, this office and building will go down in 'Goon Show' history as he birth place of a truly legendary BBC Radio show.

And with Spike being looked after by Norma Farnes - his agent, manager, and great friend - this address is a must see...if only to witness where Norma managed to put up with the madness and friendly genius that was 'the raging moon mad Milligan'.
