George Gordon Byron (1788-1824) – widely known as Lord Byron – was an English poet and politician. ⁠

He was considered as a leading figure in Romanticism and one of the greatest poets in English literature. ⁠

Some of his best-known works were Don Juan, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Oriental Tales, The Corsair, and She Walks in Beauty. ⁠

Although there is now a John Lewis there, Lord Byron was born in a house originally on Holles Street. You can find a green plaque on this site to memorialise this.⁠
