Keats House is where the poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820, and is the setting that inspired some of Keat's most memorable poetry. Here, Keats wrote 'Ode to a Nightingale', and fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the girl next door. It was from this house that he travelled to Rome, where he died of tuberculosis aged just 25. Keats House is a thriving museum dedicated not only to the poetry of  John Keats but also to poetry in general. We work closely with local community groups, museums, artists and schools, and run popular poetry groups. We run regular events and, assisted by our vibrant team of volunteers, bring the life and times of John Keats to contemporary Hampstead.
