In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history's most significant musical artists. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frideric Handel and the place where he composed some of the world's most enduring baroque music, including Messiah. 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. Both were the homes of musical innovators who chose London and changed music. See them together under one roof at Handel & Hendrix in London.

We visited really just to see Jimmy's flat. £10 each entry. A quick wiz round the two Handle floors then up to the third floor which was Jimmy's flat between 1968-1969. Jimmy... read more

Unless Hendrix is your thing this is not the place for you. Four dingy rooms, with little about Handel and almost nothing connected with him (quite an interesting exhibition about an 18th century tenor). Under-curated: the pictures are only listed on scrappy bits of paper and they can't even be bothered to keep them up to date. No Handel music... More

The Handel part of the museum is great for those who have an interest and education in music, they will not be disappointed in the objects on view here. The newer Hendrix addition to the museum is curated amazingly well, definitely worth the trip!

An unmistakable burst of wailing electric guitar sounds the way to Jimmy Hendrix's former upstairs digs. Cigarette butts lie in ashtrays around the bedroom, with a selection of classic vinyl propped up against a record player. It's not hard to imagine the rock legend scrawling lyrics and trying out riffs in a smoky haze of inspiration on the patterned rugs.... More

Handel & Hendrix under one roof, is an almost overwhelming Experience for any music fan. I started my tour in the upstairs flat of Jimi Hendrix where you can watch a short film on Jimi's life, and listen to recording of Jimi working on getting his sound just right. However going into the reconstruction of Jimi's bedroom really gives you... More

Handel & Hendrix – 25 Brook Street, Mayfair, London Amazing to think that George Handel and Jimi Hendrix both lived in this Georgian house during their lifetimes, though separated by a dividing wall and 200 years. Handel’s suite of rooms had the feeling of his presence, and as we wandered through the rooms, softly stepping the creaking floorboards, we were... More

Great piece of history of two genius musicians. Handel and hendrix in one place is an wonderful experience. A few artifacts and a bit on the history. Quite cool how the wall is knocked through from handels house to Jimmy's apartment. You won't need long in the place as both habitats are small. Well worth visiting for fans or for... More

As a Hendrix fan born after his death, it is great to see how he decorated his apartment. The accompanying Hendrix museum is nice as well. It is not too big and has a good mix between information and media support (video & audio). The attention span was just right for my 12 year old son. If the Händel part... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
