The Tower House

The Tower House is a late-Victorian town house, built between 1876 and 1878 in the 13th century French gothic style, by the Victorian art-architect William Burges for himself. 

The house is presently owned by Jimmy Page, former guitarist of Led Zeppelin and an avid enthusiast of Burges. It is not open to the public. Page bought Burges' London residence in the mid-seventies, later commenting in an interview, "I was still finding things 20 years after being there - a little beetle on the wall or something like that, it's Burges' attention to detail that is so fascinating."
