'Keats House is where the poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820, and is the setting that inspired some of Keats’s most memorable poetry. Here, Keats wrote "Ode to a Nightingale", and fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the girl next door. It was from this house that he travelled to Rome, where he died of tuberculosis aged just 25.

'Keats House is managed by the City of London Corporation as part of its contribution to the heritage and cultural life of London and the nation.'
