3 reviews of Handel House Museum in English
Marvellous concerts take place here
in the rooms where Handel himself
lived & worked. I cant praise them
highly enough. A gem of a place in
the heart of London. Beautiful Georgian
house too.It was here that Handel lived
& composed such great works as his
Messiah from 1723 till his death in1759
Once you’ve found your way to this, you’ll be amazed you didn’t discover it before, as it’s only a few twists and turns from Oxford Street. i love little museums, and Handel’s music, so for me this was the ideal place to find out more about the composer and his divas (special exhibition on at the time I visited). Most interesting - the sound clips are great and the museum staff let you listen as long as you like, give out factsheets and know lots about Handel’s life and works into the bargain. A shade expensive, perhaps, but this is the kind of museum you’d probably only visit once anyway. Be warned - there isn’t very much for young children to do or look at here: it’s essentially for adults.
Nice little museum hidden at the corner of Brook Street and Bond Street, in the lovely Lancashire Court. 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 flat upstairs. So they do have something which suits the Hendrix fans from time to time. They tried their best to recreate the Georgian town house feel to it, and it makes a nice trip away from the hustle bustle on Bond Street. It feels like you fall into a different century, a different world, when you walk inside.
