  • Excellent place, though only saw the ground floor. Went on the guided tour of the ground floor and it was really interesting. I knew little about Keats but I now know a lot more. We are going to go back to see the upstairs and the basement (kitchens)
  • The garden is a haven of peace and tranquility. It was quiet when I visited, just the sound of birdsong. Sit in this garden and imagine Keats writing his "Ode to a Nightingale" for this is where it happened, as he listen to this bird calling forth. The house is full of interest and charts his brief but inspired life. There is a good looped film giving an overview of his life in the basement floor and in one of the upstairs rooms you can listen to some of his poetry. His life and death masks are on display as well as various memorabilia and his original handwritten manuscript of his last work "Ode to Autumn", perhaps there's some personal significance in this title as he was already quite ill.
