Based on current government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19), we regret to inform you that Keats House will be closed to the public until Summer 2020 when the situation will be reviewed and, when possible, a date for its reopening will be published.

Further information and updates will be posted on this page, Twitter and Instagram as the situation progresses.

Discover the beauty of poetry and place in the home of the Romantic poet John Keats, now a museum and literary centre.

Explore the life and work of Keats through new exhibits of his original manuscripts and artefacts which tell the story of how the young poet found inspiration, friendship, and love in this stunning Regency villa.

The house comes alive with special events throughout the year, from poetry performances to family fun days. There's always something to do in the house whenever you visit - listen to Keats' world-famous poetry, watch a film about his busy life in Hampstead, or create your own poem.

Make sure to check the opening hours and how to get here before you visit.
