‘Our home is in Piccadilly’ ~ Lord Byron
“Walked early to look at my old house in Piccadilly – saw into the room where I have sat with him, and felt as if I had lived there with a friend who was long since dead to me.
No sense of past agony – all mournfully soft.”
If you ever want to know what life was like in the year 1815 – take a look around inside 13 Piccadilly Terrace and you’ll learn something about the poet Lord Byron too!
A masterpiece in miniature…
“I really love this big house and wish that I could visit all the time – BUT to be allowed to play with it would be even better!
I wouldn’t like to live in it though as I can see NO toys and I’d miss my IPad and colouring pencils too much…”
“When Lady Caroline Lamb described Byron as ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ it summed up his flamboyant reputation as one of the leading figures in the Romantic Movement. Today he might be described as a ‘Player’.
What would he have made of Tee Bylo making his London home the subject of her attentions I wonder?”
”It’s a nice enough house and big enough for this feline to get lost in as I have to protect my paws when Lord Byron’s bad-tempered hound is on the prowl.
BUT it is a rather chilly house as there is NO central heating AND sooty whiskers is NEVER a good look!”
“As everything in my ‘real’ world becomes crazier with each passing day, I really wish that I could shrink and move to Piccadilly Terrace as a perpetual house guest.
AND preferably with chocolate to enjoy, books to read, NO bills to pay OR any dishes to clean and NO laundry to attend to.”
