I love a time capsule. No, I'm not talking about those notes that you bury in your garden so your future self can unearth again and read what your younger self was like. But places in London where you feel like you've warped back in...More
First time going and I must say it was very interested to read the history on Keats, great to see that Hogarth was mentioned (Foundling Museum) I'd definitely recommend visiting keats and I hope to come to a event sometime.
I was excited to visit the Keats House and got there soon after they opened. The house is lovely with well manicured lawns and does not seem very old. I had no idea that Keats had died so young and from consumption of all things...More
Having visited keats house in Rome this is such a special place to visit if you have any interest in poetry. A must go if you love keats and his works. The house is full of history and thought out brilliantly with plenty of interactive...More
If you are looking to find a little more about this romantic poet who lived a very short life but had an impressive impact on English poetry, then take an hour to walk through this suburban home where Keats spent his last years. The video...More
Arrived in time to join a guided tour (though only covers lower ground floor) at 3pm. Times are on the website. Our guide was a volunteer, who was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.on Keats's life. . Without the guide, the trip would have been a little...More
Saturday 11th August was a very pleasurable day. The weather was kind to us and we decided to spend the day in Hampstead. We arrived at Hampstead Heath station and first visited Keat's House (National Trust Partner) then walked up to the High Street where...More
We love places like this, and if you have a pass that means you can get in for free then do visit it - lots to read and a video to watch in the basement it is fantastic to learn more if you are Keats...More
I'm surprised at one review saying there is a "lack of information." On the contrary, I leaned quite a bit! I watched the short film in the basement, and from there walked around the home. I took English literature courses, and of course, studying Keats...More
We spent a morning here in May but were a bit disappointed with the lack of information about his life, but this appears to be due to there not being much material available.
The building was well laid out and easy to get around. The...More
Probably an hour and a half as a minimum if you have an interest in Keats.

Please help me plan a day to Kenwood and Hampstead (8 Replies)
I would really appreciate some help in planning a day in Hampstead area. We will be coming from Knightsbridge. We are good walkers and want to enjoy the Heath and also to visit Burgh House and Museum (open Wed, Thurs, Fri & Sunday from12:00 to 5:00pm) and the village of Hampstead. We want to visit Kenwood House (open daily 10am-5PM). And maybe Keats House (Open Tuesday to Sunday: 1pm – 5pm). I assume we should start at Kenwood House and work our way down to the village and the other...More

To get to Kenwood from Knightsbridge you can take Piccadilly Line to Leicester Square and change onto the Northern Line northbound to Hampstead Tube Station and walk (about 20 min walk to the house) or continue on the train to Golders Green Tube Station and take bus 210 which stops outside the entrance. For Burgh House you can walk across the heath and come out at Well Walk and then continue up New End or Flask Walk out to the centre of Hampstead. If you end up at Keats House you can easily...More
Hampstead Heath itinerary (5 Replies)
On my trip this summer, I'm finally planning to make good on my desire for a day trip to Hampstead Heath. At present, I have at least three activities on my wish list: Keats House (newly renovated and I'm a fan), Kenwood House, and a hike on Hampstead Heath. I've checked some of the reviews and the websites for the houses, but I still wanted to ask some questions: 1. Recommended day of the week? 2. Order of sightseeing, realizing Kenwood House is on the north side? 3. Cafe or pub for...More

We've been to Hampstead Heath a couple of times, both on a Sunday for no particular reason other than the weather happened to be nice. I suspect weekend days may be busier with lots of families visiting. The order of what you visit may depend on what station you arrive at. We take the Northern Line to Highgate & walk down Southwood Lane to Hampstead Lane so we usually visit Kenwood House first. We like to do our walking before lunch. I can't comment on the Keats House but the Kenwood...More
Sunday Roast near Highgate Cemetery or Hampstead (5 Replies)
I will be taking a Highgate Cemetery tour on a Sunday in late March, and would like to have a classic Sunday lunch somewhere near the cemetery or in Hampstead (visiting Keats house in the afternoon). I'm looking for good food and classic pub atmosphere. Thanks for any suggestions!
