Keats House

The poet's London residence from 1818 to 1820 was the venue in which he wrote his finest poems. Today it houses a museum and library devoted to the poet.

Keats may have been born in London, but his poetic career began in earnest when he moved into this Hampstead house with friend Charles Armitage Brown. During his sojourn on the hill, he wrote the vast body of his work including such gems as La Belle Dame Sans Merci, The Eve of Saint Agnes and Ode to a Nightingale. His move to Hampstead also brought him into the life of his neighbour, Fanny Brawne, with whom he fell in love and became engaged to.

In 1820, suffering from the tuberculosis that had previously claimed his mother and brother, Keats left London for the warmer climes of Italy. He travelled as far as Rome, where he succumbed to his illness in a flat overlooking the Spanish Steps in September 1821. Success came posthumously for Keats, who is now rated as one of our greatest poets.

The Hampstead house stores a collection of Keats' effects, including letters and drafts of his poems.
