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 are musicians, so for us to see the room in which Handel wrote Messiah in 24 days was really a thrill. The Hendrix part was not of as much interest as the Handel portion of the property. The surrounding area is full of high-end shops and the street decorations were lovely. But seeing Handel's home for over 30 years... More

Took my dad to Hendrix museum because he is such a huge fan and we weren't disappointed. It's not expensive, it is in Mayfair, so a cool spot to wander around after the museum visit. First we went through Hendel's house - very interesting with a small piano and note books that belonged to the famous composer. Then upstairs we... More

The staff were very well informed, polite, and non-intrusive. They had an in-depth understanding of Handel's life and music, and were wonderful to talk with.

We checked the opening times on the web sites but when we arrived found the doors locked. A heated debate was happening inside with other customers as the venue could not be opened due to being run on a volunteer basis and no staff had shown up. We were turned away and told to come back another day (but won't... More

Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our sincerest apologies. As you have said, we rely heavily on our team of volunteers to open and run the historic houses. Unfortunately on the day you visited we were forced to open 10 minutes late due to our volunteers' availability. This is an extremely rare occurrence and something we are hoping will... More

This unassuming house in Brook Street (just off Regent Street) has been a small museum devoted to Handel for many years. We knew of it, had friends who had visited but we hadn't been - until now. The upstairs flat was Jimi's London home and it is now open for viewing and furnished as it was. There's not much to... More

This is a must see attraction. The place is ran off the back of such helpful and intelligent volunteers. I took my other half here for a birthday surprise and he loved it, even though we came for hendrix we stood for an hour in Handel's part chatting to two wonderful volunteers! They were full of stories and insight into... More

The staff are very friendly, chatty and full of information about both exhibits. It's a small museum but I recommend going when you have the time to explore all the minor details.

A magical visit ending with an amazing concert of harpsichord music. It was like being in another world. Both Handel & Hendrix were foreigners who created music in London and both played in this museum when they lived there. Recommended

Went with much anticipation, came away wondering what all the fuss is about. The Handel rooms are nothing special, but reasonably curated given the limited amount of items on display. But the big downer is the Hendrix flat, with virtually no tangible reminders of him or his life, apart from some admittedly interesting wall montages and some video material. This... 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.
