Karl Marx House
Karl Marx House Marx moved to London in early June 1849 and would remain based in the city for the rest of his life. Marx initially had only two rooms on the second floor of the house – a bedroom at the back used by the whole family and a front room which served as a kitchen and living room – but he later rented a third room for use as a study. The whole ensemble was described by Jenny Marx as ‘the evil frightful rooms which encompassed all our joy and all our pain’. Karl is commemorated with a blue plaque at 28 Dean Street in Soho, where he worked on the first volume of Das Kapital.
