Although centuries apart, George Handel and Jimi Hendrix lived only metres away from each other. Whilst both sharing an interest in music, they also shared an interest in their humble abodes in Brook Street, where Handel composed for 36 years and Jimi Hendrix held famous TV appearances. With Handel living at number 25 and Hendrix at number 23, the Handel Hendrix House now invites you to the homes of these historical and iconic music innovators. 

The Handel House - a great family day out for history buffs

Occupying the first four floors of 25 Brook Street, the established and famed Handel lived from 1723 - 1759. During this time, he penned his most famous piece of work, Messiah. Inside the former music composers residence, you'll find:

  • Bedroom: Fully restored, where the music enthusiast passed away peacefully in bed 
  • Dining Room: See where Handel performed informal recitals for friends and neighbours. 
  • Kitchen: Fully recreated and restored, along with the front and back parlours on the ground floor.
  • Handel's Front Door: Restored and reused as the entrance for all visitors
  • Additional Rooms: Used for temporary exhibitions which focus on Handel's life and legacy in Georgian London

PLUS: Learn fascinating facts about the composer's life - from his vital contribution to the British coronations, to his irreplaceable body of work and much more. 

The Hendrix Flat - Rock, Roll & Relaxation in Mayfair

The widely-loved and world-famous Jimi Hendrix resided on the top floor of 23 Brook Street from July 1968 to March 1969. As well as feeling like a rock 'n' roll star, inside Hendrix's flat you'll find:

  • Main Room: Fully restored, where Hendrix lived, entertained, rehearsed, wrote and gave multiple press interviews from. 
  • Staircase: Hendrix's staircase, which is usually closed off to the public, is now on display!
  • Permanent Exhibition: A dedicated place to pay tribute to Hendrix and reflect on his place in the musical and social world of 1960's London.
  • New Rooms: His legacy and performances are the main focal point of this new addition - see where Hendrix prepared for his Royal Albert Hall appearances. 

PLUS: On 14th September 1997, an English Heritage Blue Plaque was placed on the front of 23 Brook Street, making it the only recognised Hendrix residence in the world!
