The pretty house is in smart, upmarket Hampstead. The house was warm on a cold December day, and the staff most welcoming. In contrast to most museums, visitors are positively encouraged to sit down and rest, every sofa and chair seemed to have a cushion...More

This is well worth a visit for anyone interested in Keats and his short life. The house is obviously a bit different now than it was in his day, but lots of information and interesting artifacts related to Keats. Very well priced (£4.50 for concessions)...More

A very enjoyable visit to John Keats House which was extremely informative and so good that one felt that it was like going back in time to soak up the steps of Keats, his life and his work. There is no guided tour but one...More

I felt there was something missing and lacked a true connection with Keats. Lots of facsimiles and more of a staged effect. I realize that there isn't a large amount of artifacts from the poet due to dying at a young age and not reaching...More

This is a lovely small museum on the edge of Hampstead Heath detailing the sad, short life of Keats who rented rooms here. The entrance is through the garden and round the back, as we thought it was closed at first. If you time your...More

This house isn't particularly big but it is a nice stop off if you are about in Hampstead, and gives a good sense of what London in Keats' era was like.

Keats roomed here for a couple of key years and met his amour. Without the story and connection this is a fairly unexciting house. Quite good at setting out information on Keats and the members of the household.

What was a modest house in a village outside London where the impecunious young poet rented two small rooms is now in a choice location in this opulent suburb, with prestige cars lining the roads. The house, while pleasant and situated in a good-sized garden,...More

I'm not really a poetry lover but I found the story of Keats fascinating and very sad. Worth going just to see the architecture and beauty of the building. It's all very nicely laid out and they have made his short life very poignant. Afterwards...More

Probably an hour and a half as a minimum if you have an interest in Keats.
