Found this almost by accident when planning a trip to 2 Willow Road. Glad I took the time to wander in. Informative boards in each room outlining the tragic and brief life of one of Britain's iconic poets, a ten minute film in the basement all in a beautiful house with a pretty garden. Two minutes walk from Hampstead Heath... More

Keats lived in this house owned by Charles Brown for a couple of years before moving to Italy for health reasons. Numerous wall boards with poetry he composed while living here are located around the house, They, the den and his room with writing desk, collection of books. and Queen Anne bed, provide a good glimpse of Keats' stay here....

If you really want to get the most out of visiting Keats House, on handily named Keats Grove, off Hampstead Heath itself and near Willow Road, then go on the guided tour. The informative and witty guides will give you the full history of the house (where Keats lived and fell in love) and great anecdotes about Keats and the... More

Visiting the house where Keats lived when he wrote Ode to a Nightingale made me understand his work better. I have always liked his poetry but this visit brought new insights. Definitely worth a visit. Can also recommend bringing your lunch to eat in the garden!

I do not know why I've never visited Keats House before, especially as I live in London, so decided to rectify this. I visited on a very hot day, almost too high a temperature for strenuous heath hiking. The house is set in its own gardens, and is actually two houses joined together. Inside, it is set out exactly as... More

This is a modest but elegant house where we were easily transported into Keats' world by our knowledgeable guide Clive. (The talks are usually at 3pm with an extra one at 1.30 on some days but phone to check if you aim to go to that. House is closed Mon and Tues.) He conducted his talk on the ground floor... More

Went with a home education group and was very impressed with the workshop leader and the interactive way the children were engaged with their surroundings. The house itself is near to the station, and is a lovely little oasis of calm. Take a little picnic and sit in the small gardens -take note of the plum tree! The house is... More

Keats House is in the charming area of Hampstead, and can be easily reached by a short train ride from central London. The house itself is only a short walk from the train station. We visited Keats house while on vacation in London at the insistence of my high school son. He had done a huge research project on Keats... More
