George Orwell Lived here

The place where George Orwell wrote seminal novel 1984.


This was anti-authoritarian author George Orwell's final home - where he lived from 1944 to his death in 1950 in the top floor flat - he called it the most dangerous place to live when the bombs are falling.

He published 'Animal Farm' while here and he wrote '1984' while living in this flat.
