Book Tickets Online


This Grade I listed Regency house is where the poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820 with his friend Charles Brown. Here he wrote 'Ode to a Nightingale' and met and fell in love with Fanny Brawne. Suffering from tuberculosis, Keats left for Italy, where he died at the age of 25. Fanny wore his engagement ring until her death, and it is now displayed at the house. Their love story was immortalised in Jane Campion's film 'Bright Star', released in 2009. The museum runs regular poetry readings, talks and events suitable for families throughout the year.

Suitablity for the Disabled: WCs. Parking: None. Suitability for Dogs: Guide dogs only.
