John Keats' House - Permanent Exhibition
Category: Exhibitions
Organized by: John Keats' House
Venue: John Keats' House
Address: Keats Grove, Hampstead
Town: London
Opening hours: Friday - Sunday 1 pm - 5 pm

Situated in the beautiful London suburb of Hampstead, Keats' House has been completely renovated and was opened to the public again in 2010. Keats House is where the poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820, and is the setting that inspired some of Keats’s most memorable poetry.

The Keats House collection is comprised of an enormous variety of Keats related material including books, paintings and everyday household items which might have been used in the house at the time. Some of the original material includes letters written by Keats, books in which Keats wrote some of his poetry, and the engagement ring given by Keats to his fiancée, Fanny Brawne.
