Keats House information
This elegant Regency house was home to the golden boy of the Romantic poets from 1818 to 1820. Never short of generous mates, Keats was persuaded to take refuge here by Charles Armitage Brown, and it was here that he met his fiancée Fanny Brawne, literally the girl next door.
Keats wrote his most celebrated poem, 'Ode to a Nightingale', while sitting under a plum tree in the garden (no longer there), in 1819. The house is sparsely furnished but does a good job of conveying what daily life would have been like in Keats’ day.
