Haile Selassie spent most of his period of exile (1936-41) in Bath, and frequented the Lido at Weston-super-Mare. He also spent time at Worthing as well as Wimbledon. (Whereas Ho Chi Minh is associated with Newhaven, whence he plied the ferries to Dieppe.)

And of course Sylvia Pankhurst made the journey in the other direction, and was eventually given a state funeral in Addis Ababa, where her son lived until his death there in 2017, at the age of 89.
