Travel Guide

One of the most infamous UK addresses…

To rest any associations with murderer John Christie, Rillington Place was renamed Runton Close in May 1954, but it was eventually demolished in 1970. The area that was once Rillington Place is now occupied by Bartle Road with the exact location of number 10 remaining undeveloped. The plot is now used as a communal garden.

Christie murdered at least eight people – including his wife, Ethel – by strangling them in his flat at 10 Rillington Place. This case sparked huge controversy after Evans, the lodger, was charged with both murders, found guilty of the murder of his daughter and hanged in 1950.
