Craven House, Drury Lane
Craven House was situated at the corner of Drury Lane and Wych Street. Originally named Drury House, in the late 17th century it was acquired by the wealthy Earl of Craven who rebuilt and renamed it. His mistress the Queen of Bohemia (daughter of James I and direct ancestor of the Hanoverian dynasty) was also in residence here. By the 18th century Drury Lane was no longer a fashionable location and was known by for drunkenness and debauchery.
