Clarkson, who most of us know and love from his time on Top Gear, had a life full of memories in this home far before he became the infamous TV show presenter we know now. Undoubtedly, one of the most notable and heart-warming memories must have been playing with the first ever Paddington Bear in 1972, when Clarkson was only 12 years old, which was created by Shirley and Eddie Clarkson, who are of course, Jeremy’s parents.

The home is located very close to the school Jeremy Clarkson attended as a boy, Hill House and Repton , which if you recall was where he was bullied so badly that in order to survive, he created his now famous sense of humor as a defense mechanism.
