Discover the beauty of poetry and place in the home of Romantic poet John Keats

Keats House is the beautiful Regency villa where Romantic poet John Keats found inspiration, friendship and love.

Visit the house to discover his life story, and experience what inspired him to write some of his most-loved works.

Our 'Young Romantics in the City' exhibition, which is included in the price of admission, explores the diversity of writers and writing in the Romantic period. Our special displays in the ground floor parlours feature material related to the main themes of the exhibition: politics, class, gender and race. On display until Sunday 1 October is the British Library's first edition of 'The Woman of Colour', published anonymously in 1808, along with material related to the literary lives of  Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley and Sara Coleridge.


There is wheelchair access to most rooms on the ground floor of Keats House. One room is accessible via a ramp from outside on request. Stairs to the basement and upper floor restrict access for people with reduced mobility and wheelchair users. We have a low-level interactive touchscreen on the ground floor with information about other rooms in the house. 

Large print guides for the permanent galleries and temporary exhibitions are available.

An induction loop is available at the Welcome Desk (you will need to switch your hearing aid to the 'T' position) and in the events rooms.

Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas.

There is one accessible toilet with a baby changing facility in the garden, adjacent to the house.
