Description
Visit: Handel & Hendrix in London, 25 Brook Street Mayfair, London W1K 4HB England

Meet your guide at 25 Brook Street in central London, make your way up the wonky, 250 year old grade staircase and step back in time into George Frideric Handel's music rooms where he composed, rehearsed, performed and conversed with the leading musical luminaries of the Baroque age. This is where he wrote Messiah, and these are the windows from which he threatened to throw soprano opera stars when they refused to sing his arias.  

Musicians are often found practicing on one of the harpsichords throughout the day, offering a beautiful atmospheric accompaniment as you make your way around Handel House. 

Making your way up to the second floor, you will find yourself in Handel's dressing room and the beautiful bedroom in which he eventually died of old age after 35 years at the heart of English music.  

Then you will be led up to the third floor of the museum, where you will find yourself transported to 60s London and the height of its swinging heyday. The city which embraced one of the greatest guitarists the world has ever seen and made him famous, London, held a special place in Jimi Hendrix's heart and he described the flat he lived in with his girlfriend Kathy at 23 Brook Street as the first place he'd ever truly called home. Find out how Hendrix's 1969 bedroom has been painstakingly recreated from intensive research and with the help of those who knew Jimi best. This is the room where Hendrix lived, loved and played guitar in and there are hundreds of stories to find out about.
