Visit the cheese shop where Aleister Crowley once lived 

When the occult gets cheesy
This must try is connected to: Paxton & Whitfield

Aleister Crowley, the infamous occultist and founder of the religion of Thelema who believed himself to be a prophet, lived at 93 Jermyn Street during World War 2.


While Crowley was busy planning how to guide all of humanity into the Æon of Horus, the shop downstairs was already established as Paxton & Whitfield cheesemongers. Sadly his former home isn't open to the public, but it's a worthy pitstop for anyone fascinated with the man who influenced Wicca (as well as for lovers of cheese).
