Cheyne Walk London

Many famous people have lived (and continue to live) in the Walk: 

Mick Jagger

The tranquillity of 48 Cheyne Walk was interrupted by the arrival in 1968 of Mick Jagger and his girlfriend Marianne Faithfull. In addition to adoring and noisy fans, members of the Chelsea Drugs Squad regularly monitored the house. A short stroll away at the bottom of Oakley Street was the home of his close friends David and Angie Bowie. Mick continued to live here with his wife, Bianca and daughter, Jade until 1975.

“By October 1973, the Bowies were living on Oakley Street, just a stroll from Cheyne Walk. Angie had been out of town for a few days when she returned home one morning and went straight to the kitchen to make some tea.
“The Bowies’ maid, who had arrived about an hour earlier, approached the lady of the house with a peculiar look on her face. ‘Someone,’ she told Angie, ‘is in your bed.’
“Angie went upstairs to her bedroom, slowly pushed the door open, and there they were: Mick Jagger and David Bowie, naked in bed together, sleeping. thevine

Lived at number 3, which in 1945 became a National Trust property housing the Benton Fletcher collection of keyboard instruments.
Keith Richards lived here with Anita Pallenberg from August 1969, this former home of Tory government minister Anthony Nutting was where Keith and Anita had their new born son Marlon. The house was just a hundred yards away from another house on Cheyne Walk that was occupied by Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull. It was hoped that Keith living so near to Mick would help facilitate their song writing.
