Great place to visit to learn more about the poet John Keats, including his family’s and his own sad history. The house is well preserved and tells an interesting story. I loved the fact they included quotes from Keats around the house as well. Just a short walk from Hampstead Heath overground - and very close to the Heath itself as well.

A lovely house with a sad story. The staff were great and very friendly. Sadly Keats died so young and this house gets it so right to make him come alive again and you can imagine him there. Highly recommend a visit.

Great set up of museum allowing you to really get a feel for life there in Keats' time. Very special to get to visit the exact places where he wrote his poems. Thought provoking quotes and genuine artefacts abound. Must for any romantic poetry lover! Very friendly staff, definitely worth the admission :)

Keats lived here less than 2 years but wrote many of his odes in this house. He died tragically early and relatively unknown in his lifetime hence there not being many artefacts available to view. At the time Keats lived here the house was split into two and the love of his life, Fanny Brawne, lived in one half and Keats lodged with his friend Charles Brown in the other half. There’s a good introductory film to watch before your tour the building. It provides a very helpful overview of Keats and his life. It’s Keats200 celebrating the fact that he lived in Wentworth House 200 years ago. A tour of the property will not take long, allow an hour to 90 minutes, as it’s a small but beautiful place. The house is rightly too small to attempt to house a cafe or well stocked shop but there are items for sale in the room where you buy your tickets. Entry price is very reasonable and only £2.00 during Keats200. My suggestion would be to include this house as part of a day trip to a Hampstead to also visit one or two of the following: Goldfinger’s home, Kenworth, Fenton House, Burgh House or Hampstead Heath. Unless you are a Keats fan it’s probably not enough to make the trip on its own but Hampstead is a great place to potter as it does have an old world charm and you can picture how Wentworth House would have looked back in the day when Hampstead was a small village.

We chose this place to meet up with family from various parts of the country, just as a meeting point in the area. However, it turns out that Keats House is well worth a visit even if, like me, you know very lttle about Keats. Interesting insights, quirky house and small but delightful garden. Definitely worth a visit.
