The Blue Plaques of London
London has been home to some of the greatest and creative minds in history. To honour their achievements, the Blue Plaque scheme was founded in 1866. Run successively by the (Royal) Society of Arts, the London Council and the Greater London Council, English Heritage commemorates the link between notable figures of the past and the buildings in which they lived and worked.
Here is a guide of where to find some of these plaques. For a full list of names you may visit this link.
Sir Alfred Hitchcock
153 Cromwell Road, Kensington SW5
54 Eaton Square, Westminster SW1
23 Brook Street, Mayfair W1
51 Upper Brook Street, Westminster W1
John Lennon & George Harrison
34 Montague Square, Marylebone W1
I love spotting these blue plaques during my journeys around London. I hope you found this post interesting and next time you are in London you will be spotting some of the plaques. There are hundreds of them spread out in the city!!
Have a great week!
