In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history's most significant musical artists. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frideric Handel and the place where he composed some of the world's most enduring baroque music, including Messiah. On the top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where, two centuries later, Jimi Hendrix lived with his girlfriend, record player and guitar. Both were the homes of musical innovators who chose London and changed music. See them together under one roof at Handel & Hendrix in London.

Walking in to Hendrix bedroom was like walking back into the 60s. It was spot on. The rest of the rooms have pictures and details of what he was doing on certain days.

Great! Guides were very excellent and were, with their knowledge, able to bring us close to Georg Friedrich and Jimi.

Lovely concert in the home of one of the greatest composers - what more could you ask for? There were about 30 people sitting in Handel's front room. The musicians, all on a youth programme, were excellent.

A bit of Georgian London preserved. The Handel/Hendrix house has room for Baroque fanciers and fans of Jimmi Hendrix. A bit of calm just a block off busy Oxford Street where 300 year old harpsichords mix with Fender Guitars.

The fact that both men lived here separated by so much time and had such an impact on music is fascinating. The on-site guides bring the place to life and were the best encountered in London. It's evident they're really interested in the subject matter...More

Nice intimate setting, wonderful harpsichord. Promising young player. Would have been good to have each set of pieces introduced, especially since the order dirrered from the programme.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
