Keats House

Historic Building in North London

This elegant Regency house was home to the golden boy of the Romantic poets, John Keats, from 1818 to 1820. It was here that Keats met his fiancée Fanny Brawne, literally the girl next door. And it was here that he wrote many of his most celebrated poems. The house is sparsely but evocatively furnished and the museum does a great job of recounting Keats' short and intense life.

There is a 10-minute biographical film shown downstairs and listening stations upstairs where you can listen to some of Keats' poems and excerpts from letters written by both him and Fanny Brawne.
