Visit the Keats Museum

Keats House, in Hampstead, is the house where John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820. The house is now a museum about Keats and has recently recently undergone a major restoration project.


It is said that the years he spent at the house were amongst his most productive as a poet, possibly because he fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the daughter of his neighbour. It is said that he wrote "Ode to a Nightingale" under a plum tree in the garden.

The Keats Museum is open to the public daily (except Mondays) at a cost of £5. For more information, and opening times, visit the page on the City of London Corporation Website.
