What to expect

If you like music, then you’ll love this tour of the homes of two of the greatest composers (with vastly contrasting styles) in the history of sound. George Frideric Handel lived at 25 Brook Street between 1723 and his death in 1759. The legendary guitarist, Jimi Hendrix occupied the upper floor flat at 23 Brook Street from July 1968 to March 1969. The museum is the brainchild of musicologist, Stanley Sadie, who raised the funds for the purchase of the building and its restoration in the early 90s. Whether you’re into classical music or rock, you’ll find both properties offer an intriguing glimpse into the lives of their former residents.

Things to look out for

Handel House at 25 Brook Street serves as a museum to the memory of the great composer, occupying two floors of the building. Both his bedroom and the dining room where he often gave recitals have been lovingly restored to their former glory.

Jimi Hendrix had the upper floor of 23 Brook Street redecorated to his taste and accessorised with ornaments and knickknacks from nearby Portobello Road market. He conducted a long series of press interviews and photoshoots there in 1969 having just completed an extensive tour of the US. Work began on restoring the Hendrix flat in 2014 and it subsequently reopened for visitors in 2016. The space now includes a studio where musicians can perform small concerts and give guitar tutorials.

Helpful Tips

Last admission is 5pm. Guided tours, lasting one hour, are available most Wednesdays between September and March at 10am. The building is fully accessible for disabled visitors, but it’s a good idea to phone ahead to notify staff of any special needs.

Brook Street is located in Mayfair in the West End of London close to Oxford Circus. While the nearest tube station is Oxford Circus, numerous buses stop within minutes of Handel’s house. There are Park by Phone bays around the area and a car park in Cavendish Square nearby.
