Keats House, London - South End Green Keats House in London is a great little museum in Hampstead where poet John Keats wrote "Ode to a Nightingale". It's worth a visit to see where he lived and worked.
Keats House - in Hampstead, actually belonged to a friend. He moved here after the death of his brother & fell in love with their neighbour, the 18 year-old, Fanny Brawne. 'Ode to a Nightingale' was crammed onto two sheets of paper, while sitting below the plum tree here. The nesting nightingale sang above him, as he strove to capture the moment. Keats died aged only 25. NW3, Hampstead Tube. By diamond geezer on Flickr, 2011.
The Spaniards Inn is soaked in London history; Dickens referred to it in his first novel, The Pickwick Papers, Bram Stoker mentioned it in Dracula (apparently borrowing one of its ghost stories for the novel), John Keats is supposed to have composed his Ode to a Nightingale in the garden at the back and Dick Turpin,the notorious highwayman’s father was landlord in the 18th century.
