Celebrate 200 years of John Keats's poetry at Keats House

Hampstead, London

Enjoy a varied programme of events from guided walks, tours and poetry readings to family days and music recitals in the peaceful setting of Keats House.

Explore the life and work of Keats through new exhibits of his original manuscripts and artefacts which tell the story of how the young poet found inspiration, friendship, and love in this stunning Regency villa.

Known as Wentworth Place, the house was originally two separate residences. The smaller eastern side was occupied by Charles Brown and it was to Brown's side of the house that John Keats came to live in 1818. Keats spent an eventful 17 months in the house, meeting his love, Fanny Brawn, whose family occupied the other residence.
