Alfred Hitchcock's London Home

On a busy thoroughfare near Earl's Court is the row house (see below) where Sir Alfred Hitchcock lived from 1926 until 1939. Here he spent his formative London years before being discovered by Hollywood just prior to the start of World War II. Currently, Alfred Hitchcock's London home is just another slightly run-down building of rental flats known as The Turner House and identified by an English Heritage plaque.

Alfred Hitchcock's London home is currently linked to the Independent Turner Society, a group of admirers of the 19th-century painter J.M.W. Turner. The fact that the society now meets in the building where the legendary director once lived is just a coincidence.

Alfred Hitchcock's London home is sandwiched between The Derby Hotel and the Kensington Marriot Hotel at 153 Cromwell Road in London’s Earl's Court neighbourhood.
