Karl Marx's London Home

Karl Heinrich Marx (1818-1883) was a German revolutionary, author and philosopher.

Marx was one of the most important political theorists of the 19th century best known for his ideas about communism and capitalism.

Because of his political views and publications, Marx had to live in exile with his family in London until his death in 1883.

Some of his notable works were his 1848 Pamphlet, The Communist Manifesto, and the three-volume critique of capitalism, Das Kapital.

At this house – which Marx lived in from 1851 to 1856 – he worked on the first volume of Das Kapital.
