Dylan Thomas' House of Horror

Poet Dylan Thomas lived in the basement flat here.

Location: 54 Delancey Street, Camden

Description: Poet Dylan Thomas lived in a basement flat here with his wife of 17 years Caitlin (Macnamara) and their three children.

Margaret Taylor, a wealthy patron of Thomas's bought the flat in 1951 to try and keep him in London and to stop him travelling to the US. He still goes the following the year for a 5 month tour.

Taylor also bought him a caravan for the end of the garden there and it was here that he went to seek creativity away from the family clamour.

Thomas would later describe the flat as his London house of horror.

His widow unveiled a blue plaque here in 1983 and the caravan was still there then.
