No 7 Meard Street, Soho - "This is not a brothel"

No 7 Meard Street is the former home of artist and dandy Sebastian Horsley, who died in 2010 of a drugs overdose. The sign on the door reads “This is not a brothel. There are no prostitutes at this address”. It never was a brothel and prostitutes never did work from the address. It’s just a piece of art work, screwed to the front door that typifies Horsley’s flamboyant life style. Best known for being filmed by Sarah Lucas while enduring a voluntary crucifixion (sorry this is starting to sound like a Daily Mail piece) Sebastian Horsley was laid to rest to the sounds of T. Rex and "20th Century Boy". What a way to go.

No 7 Meard Street keeps the eccentric character of Soho alive and kicking.
