180 Ebury Street

180 Ebury Street in the Belgravia district of London was the home of the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his family from 5 August 1764 to 24 September 1764 during the Mozart family's grand tour of Europe.[1]

The house was built in the early to mid-18th century as part of a terrace. Mozart composed his first symphony here in 1764, the house has been listed at Grade I due to its association with Mozart.[2]

The building is now marked with a London County Council plaque placed in 1939 to commemorate Mozart's residence, the plaque was re-erected in 1951 following damage in the Second World War.[3][dead link]
