L. Ron Hubbard's Fitzroy House
Fitzroy House was built in 1791, with elegant interiors inspired by Robert Adam, who developed nearby Fitzroy Square. The house was the home of playwright George Bernard Shaw, and in the 1950s became the residence of writer and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Dianetics and Scientology.
Hubbard was named the world's “Most Published Author” by the Guinness Book of World Records, and the library illustrates why, with hundreds of his books on display - out a grand total of 1,084 publications over the course of his life. The offices are like a 1950s time capsule, complete with a Western Union telefax, manual typewriters, and Grundig tape recorders.
The house is open for free group and individual tours by appointment, and special educational and religious tours can be arranged.
