Garden Lodge 1 Logan Place, Kensington, London.

Though you won’t see much from outside the brick wall, Queen lead singer, Freddie Mercury spent his last days here at his house, Garden Lodge 1 Logan Place in Kensington, London.   The singer who died from bronchial pneumonia from AIDS, spent his last days with his former partner, Mary Austin, who continues to live at the home. Mercury was diagnosed with HIV in 1987 but kept his condition private until he released a public statement just a little over 24 hours before he passed away on November 24, 1991. Mercury was just 45 years old.

The outer walls of Garden Lodge in 1 Logan Place have become a shrine to Mercury, with fans paying tribute by covering the walls with messages for the legendary late singer.
