Keats House Museum

The Romantic poet John Keats lived in this house and was inspired to write his most memorable poetry here.

The grade 1 listed building is open to the public as a museum and literary centre, where Keats's memory lives on through events, creative activities and special displays.

Visitors can explore Keats's study, the bedroom where his consumption was first diagnosed, and the garden which he shared with the love of his life, Fanny Brawne, and in which he composed his famous 'Ode to a Nightingale'.
