Handel & Hendrix in London

About

Handel House Museum was home to George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759. It was here that Handel composed 'Messiah', 'Zadok the Priest' and 'Music for the Royal Fireworks'. The Museum is the perfect place to learn about Handel's life, music and 18th century London, with its restored Georgian interiors. Today visitors can enjoy regular live music, special exhibitions and other public events.

The adjoining house, number 23, was Jimi Hendrix’s London home and now open to visit. His bedroom has been carefully restored to hark back to 1969, the time when he occupied the flat, and there will also be a permanent Hendrix exhibition.

Last weekend, on my sister's instigation (she's a musician) we decided to check out the Handel House Museum. I quite like a bit of Georg Friedrich myself from time to time, so I built up a certain level of expectations. To add to the intrigue is the fact that Jimi Hendricks lived in the same building in 1968-69, as the blue plaque outside the building demonstrates. Now, where else can one...more

Quiet, beautifully done, and it was the residence of Handel during his days in London, and he died here too. They hold some concerts for a reasonable price, classical music as you expect. And the surrounding is just right for Handel's music of course. Strangely it is also Jimi Hendrix's...more
