I was in London last week and tried taking a short cut to Earls Court and I ended up in Logan Place. I returned later in the day to take a picture

I couldn't believe my luck - If I was trying to find it , it would have been harder... Quite easy to find when I looked at a map later!

All the graffiti is now gone from the walls and only a bit remains on the door.

Thanks for sharing! Now tell us, how did it feel to be there? What did you think when you first realized where you were? :-)

I was delighted to have been there - a bit weird having seen it on TV in 91 at the time.
Its a lovely area - very quiet.

I nearly dropped when I saw the green door with "1 Logan Place" on it - I hadn't planned on looking for it as I had never been in London before.

However, I agree, the messages were nice, but it would have been tacky and looking bad, especially for other residents.

If anyone needs directions I can sort out a map if you want and email it to you !

I think there was a QueenZone post on the location also.

It would be cool to open it up every once in a while, like Graceland, but on a smaller scale.

Cool. It is a shame they had to wash off all the thanks to Freddie and their love but it would look rough and then idiots would just ruin it jsut for the hell of it. Great picture.

Been there a few times, the last time I went they didnt have that ghastly fence up so you could actually see the house. I was drinking in the Kensington Arms fisrt time I went, great pub. Asked the landlord where Freds house was and he said just around the corner. Not really much to see there now.

Oh yes please.


Hi 'A Winters Tale', I put a map on my site based on getting the Underground to Earls Court and then walking to Logan Place (about 10 min walk at most).
It should be easy to follow.

The address of the map / forum post is

Seems to be a popular post - so much so I have added a second picture, a close up of the door.
If anyone ever wrote on the door you might be able to see your message here.

Enjoy !

I found it on a map and was going to go last time we were in London, but didn't have enough time, what with going to WWRY and having my picture taken next to Freddie's waxwork wearing a Brian May wig at Tussauds. *Sigh*


This can't end well.
