Plaque: Adam, Hood, Galsworthy, Barrie, etc.


Robert Adam, Thomas Hood, John Galsworthy, Sir James Barrie and other eminent artists and writers lived here.

Site: Adam, Hood, Galsworthy, Barrie, etc. (1 memorial)

WC2, Robert Street

2021: The basement of this listed building now houses the Aire Ancient Baths, a spa described by the FT puff as containing "... a series of candle-lit pools under brick arches in the manner of a Roman cistern, patches of peeling plaster and clusters of salt-glazed pots, the odd pair of columns and terracotta urns. The sound of what I suspect is a pan flute gently pipes through the speakers (even underwater)."
