Keats House

The Romantic poet John Keats lived in this house and was inspired to write his most memorable poetry here. 

The grade 1 listed building is open to the public as a museum and literary centre, where Keats's memory lives on through events, creative activities and special displays.

Visitors can explore Keats's study, the bedroom where his consumption was first diagnosed, and the garden which he shared with the love of his life, Fanny Brawne, and in which he composed his famous 'Ode to a Nightingale'. 

Discover the house where poet John Keats wrote his best loved poems in this fascinating video.

Opening hours

Keats House is open Tuesday to Sunday, 1pm to 5pm. During the winter months (November to February) we have reduced opening times. For full details, admission prices and directions, look at our Visit us page.
