Keats’ House is where the poet John Keats lived briefly between 1818 and 1820.

He had some exciting times in the premises, even falling in love with the girl next door – Fanny Brawne. He became engaged to her one year later before moving to Italy to better his health. And it was there that he died of tuberculosis, aged just twenty-five.

The house contains many of his original letters, manuscripts and furnishings in Regency style. Of the works that were composed in the building, the most famous is probably Ode To A Nightingale.

The plum tree under which he sat has sadly been uprooted, but another has been planted in the same place.
