Plaque of the week No.114: David Bowie
Return of the Plaque of the Week!
Our Plaque of the Week series returns for a 12 week run…
You've seen them all over the city: discs, tablets, cameos and plaques commemorating the great and the good of London Town. Wednesday is our new day for tracking down London plaques (Blue or otherwise) and putting them center stage on the Daily Constitutional. This week…
Where would one expect to find a plaque for The Man Who Fell To Earth? That most otherworldly of rock stars, David Bowie, whose surprise comeback singles and eagerly awaited new album have set the critics all a-flutter like it was 1973 once more, is commemorated in… Beckenham.
Beckenham?
Plaque of the week No.114: David Bowie

Bowie, born in Brixton plain ol’ David Jones, was raised in Bromley, lived in Beckenham at Haddon Hall and launched his now famous Arts Lab in the prosaic surroundings of the mock Tudor pub the Three Tuns (now a branch of the Zizzi restaurant chain).
A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
