Handel House Museum

25 Brook Street, Mayfair, London W1K 4HB
25 Brook Street London England W1K GB

Handel House was home to the great baroque composer George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759. The only composer museum in London, this landmark address is where Handel composed some of the greatest music in history, including Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks.

The museum celebrates Handel’s life and works, displaying portraits of Handel and his contemporaries in finely restored Georgian interiors and by bringing live music back to his house. Frequent music rehearsals, weekly concerts, Saturday Talks and regular exhibitions bring Handel’s world to life.

By strange coincidence, Jimi Hendrix lived in the attic flat in the building next door from 1968-69. It is currently the museum’s administrative offices and this blog charts our work in turning his flat into a museum. The blog is written by Sarah Bardwell, Director of Handel House Museum.
