Keats House

This is the house where poet John Keats lived.

Location: Keats Grove, Hampstead, London, NW3 2RR

Description: This is Wentworth House, the Regency house where poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820, and is the setting which inspired some of Keatss most memorable poetry.

Here, Keats wrote Ode to a Nightingale, and fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the girl next door.

It was from this house that he travelled to Rome, where he died of tuberculosis aged just 25.

The houses and gardens are open to the public, and there is a collection of his books, manuscripts, letters, and artwork. There are also regular literary talks and poetry readings held here.
