The Handel House Museum can be found at No. 25 Brook Street, in the old home of German composer George Friedrich Handel.
He lived in the property from 1723 until his death in 1759, and it was here that he wrote some of his best known works – Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks.
The house has been lovingly restored to how it would have looked in the early 18th-century, and contains prints, portraits and some of the composer’s original music scores.
The house next door (No.23) also provides some space for live music recitals. Funnily enough, it was home to a famous musician as well – although not quite in the same sphere of music. It was… Jimi Hendrix.
