  • Visitor Information

Set in the heart of Fitzrovia, famed for its writers and artists, Fitzroy House was built in 1791 shortly after development was undertaken of this area. The original interior and current exterior imitate the designs of Robert Adam, celebrated Georgian-period architect. Fitzroy House was home to Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw who lived with his mother on the 1st floor of 37 Fitzroy Street from 1881 to 1882. Seventy five years later L. Ron Hubbard, writer and philosopher and founder of Scientology, worked here in the 1950s. The library displays the hundreds of Mr. Hubbard’s published works for which he was awarded “Most Published Author” by the Guinness Book of World Records. The offices are reminiscent of the 1950s, complete with Adler typewriters, Grundig tape recorders, and Western Union telefax.
