Doorways Around the World

Bond, James Bond


Number 18 Melbury Road in West Kensington. This was the home of the pre-Raphaelite painter William Holman Hunt, and here the young Virginia Woolf had lessons in deportment from Mrs. Holman Hunt. In 1923, MI6 (the British secret intelligence service made famous around the world by James Bond) moved here for a year from central London. The house has been converted to flats.

Photographer: Passante of Passante’s World. This doorway is in London, UK.

  1. What a lovely entrance. I was just wondering if the flats are bugged?
