Set in the heart of Fitzrovia, Fitzroy House is a fine example of London architecture dating back to the 18th century when this area was first built.
Fitzrovia itself has for many years been renowned for its writers and artists. From H.G. Wells and George Orwell, to Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf - its inhabitants have left an indelible mark.
Although it is well known that the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw resided in Fitzroy Square, it is a lesser-known fact that he also lived with his mother on the 1st floor of 37 Fitzroy Street from 1881-1882.
75 years later, writer and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard made 37 Fitzroy Street his London base. Mr. Hubbard wrote many of his best-known works whilst in London.
With 19 New York Times Bestsellers and 3 literary Guinness World Record Titles including 'Most Published Author,' he is one of the most prolific writers of his time.
Steeped in nostalgic memorabilia, Fitzroy House will take you on a trip down memory lane, with its faithfully restored communications office equipment including Adler typewriters, Grundig tape recorder and a Western Union Telefax.
