Handel House Museum was home to the great baroque composer 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’. Today Handel House Museum is a beautifully restored historic house, intimate live music venue and museum offering an insight into Handel’s life, 18th century music and culture.

Paintings and prints of Handel and his contemporaries provide a backdrop to Handel’s life in London. The Museum is the perfect place to learn about Handel’s life, music and 18th century London, with its restored Georgian interiors. 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 an exhibition honouring Jimi Hendrix, who lived here from 1968 to  1969.
