These two locations are right next door to each other on Brook Street. Number 25 was previously home to Handel who lived and composed there for 36 years to 1759, and the top floor of the house next door was Jimi Hendrix’s flat in 1968 and 1969.

At the Handel House Museum, you can see four restored rooms, as well as temporary exhibitions about the man himself. The main living area of Hendrix’s flat has also been restored, and an exhibition about Hendrix is also in place.
