THACKERAY'S HOUSE IN YOUNG STREET

THACKERAY'S HOUSE IN YOUNG STREET

William Makepeace Thackeray lived at this house in Young Street, Kensington, from 1846 to 1853. The number in the road is now 16, but in his time it was 13, and the superstitious may note that it was in this house that "Vanity Fair" and "Pendennis," two of his most popular novels, were written. Thackeray died in Kensington, at a house in Palace Green.
