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, contains displays from the Museum's collection and a Jimi Hendrix exhibition, who lived here from 1968-69.
