Home Libraries: George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw’s ‘London’ Hut

Hidden at the bottom of Irish playwright Shaw’s garden was a rotating hut, which he built himself and wrote in. The story goes he called it ‘London’, so that if somebody called for him, they could be told he was in London and it would be true!

The hut was built to rotate so Shaw could move it from inside to be in the sunshine constantly while he worked. Sounds pretty good to us. Here he is pictured sitting in it in 1944.

Here is another view of the Rotating Writing Shed in the garden at Shaw’s Corner.
