VN in London?
They were only in Stanhope Gardens for a little while - the family moved to
Elm Park Gardens (off the Fulham Road) in May 1919 (Boyd, The Russian Years,
p. 166), but of course VN was in Cambridge soon after that.

In re Peter Cowlam's query: Dieter Zimmer's excellent list of VN's
"Homes and Haunts" on ZEMBLA yields the following:

1919 (from June): father rents apartment at 55 Stanhope Gardens, South
Kensington, London
1919 (from October 1): enrollment at Trinity College, Cambridge; rooms
at Great Court R6 (=staircase R, set 6)
