A musical museum set in the London homes of Jimi Hendrix and George Frideric Handel.
25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring Baroque music, such as Zadok the Priest, Music for the Royal Fireworks and Messiah. Visit the rooms where he ate, slept, rehearsed and entertained in a modest mid-terraced house for the last 36 years of his life and understand the man behind these incredible works.
On the top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where, two centuries later, Jimi Hendrix lived with his girlfriend, record player and guitar from 1968-69. Step back in time to 60s London and visit the room where he slept, partied, worked and relaxed.
Both were the homes of musical innovators who chose London and changed music. See them together under one roof at Handel & Hendrix in London.
Guided Tours: one hour-long tours with our expert volunteers run at 2pm & 3.30pm every Friday. Included with general admission.
Baroque rehearsals: If you come to Handel House from 11.30am-1.30pm on Wednesdays, and 11.30am-1.30pm or 2.00pm-4.00pm on Saturdays you will be guaranteed the chance to listen to a live Baroque rehearsal in Handel’s Music Room.

It was a lovely home and everyone working there was very friendly and helpful. It is a small museum featuring replica rooms with period furniture and paintings, it is worth popping in for a short visit if you are a fan of either Handel or Hendrix. However, if you are a fan then your visit will add little to your understanding of either of the musicians, but the restoration is done well and while my visit was brief it was enjoyable. What made the visit special was listening to a musician play Handel on the harpsichord in one of the rooms - a nice bit of escapism into the world of Handel and Hendrix.
I went to Handel House with my boyfriend to see a performance. If you are a Handel fan, like him, you are in your element here. Me, not being a Handel fan, appreciated the beautiful house and lovely things inside it.
