Keats House (Hampstead)

Keats House is an interesting house in Hampstead.

It is situated in Keats Grove.

The house was built by Charles Brown (as Wentworth House) in 1816, and his friend John Keats came to live here in 1818, when he was 23 years old. He fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the daughter of the other tenant of the house, and the pair became engaged.

Keats became ill shortly afterwards with consumption, and died in 1821 while visiting Rome.

He wrote "Ode to a Nightingale" under a tree in the garden in 1819.

Today, the house can be visited. It contains memorabilia on the poet`s life.
