Handel House Museum in central London celebrates Handel's life and works, displaying portraits of Handel and his contemporaries in finely restored Georgian interiors and bringing live music back to his house.
The Handel House Museum was home to the baroque composer George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759. This landmark address is where Handel composed some of the greatest music in history including Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks, and died on 14 April 1759.
23 and 25 Brook Street
The Handel House Museum occupies 23 and 25 Brook Street, London W1. 25 Brook Street was Handel's home and the adjoining building is used for temporary exhibitions. No. 23 Brook Street was also home to Jimi Hendrix in 1968-69.
When you are in the building, you can differentiate between the two as Handel's no.25 is painted a blue-grey and Hendrix's no.23 is painted cream.
