Site: Kenneth Williams - Allsop Place (1 memorial)
NW1, Allsop Place, Farley Court
Williams's flat was on the 9th, top floor, of this 1929 block. From English Heritage: "On moving into Farley Court, Williams was "elated", writing in his diary, "My bedroom looks out over Regent's Park. The trees are turning now and the sight is beautiful. I can see all the traffic twinkling down the Marylebone Rd…It's all so marvellous, I could cry." Later, in a more misanthropic mood, Williams wrote of looking down upon "the nits crowding round outside the waxworks. How I loathe them and Madame Tussaud"."
