  • What can I say? Iconic young glam rock star immortalised at the scene of his tragic death by fans. Has a bust and a couple of memorial plaques, a notice board and a barrel of photos. A shrine. Nearest overground is Barnes on the Waterloo line.
  • Nothing much to see except the tributes left by other fans at the site of Bolan’s untimely death. Most of the fans weren’t even born back then. But it’s a neat little bit of Glam Rock history all the same. Superfans may wish to make the short journey from here (less than one mile to the west) to view the outside of “Spur Lodge” at 142 Upper Richmond Road West, SE14 4DS, located on the corner of Kings Road: that was Bolan’s house at the time of the crash which killed him and was his intended destination. Note that it is a private house and is not open to visitors, but you can at least see where he lived and the local area (Sheen) has a few pubs you could visit where he may well have had a drink or few.
