  Kenneth Grahame's House, London
by easyoar

Kenneth Grahame is well known in the UK (at least) for his children's book "Wind in the Willows" which is about animals living along a river bank - a mole, a water rat and a toad all feature predominantly if memory serves me well. Well actually the toad was a bit of a rich playboy and lived in Toad Hall, but you get the idea.

As I don't know how well known this book is outside the UK, it's hard to say how useful this tip will be to 'foreigners', but if you do know the book, then you can find this house at 16 Phillimore Place, which is a road that runs parallel to Kensington High Street (you'll need to go down Argyle Street to find it). Best tube is probably Kensington High Street.

It's near to Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers restaurant, so you may wish to go past that whilst you're in the area.

Address: 16 Phillimore Place, London
Directions: Use Kensington High Street Tube

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
