Handel House Museum

The Handel House Museum is situated in the great composer's home in Brook Street, where George Frederic Handel lived from 1723 until his death in 1759. Born in Saxony in 1685, Handel initially toured the courts of Europe, receiving patronage from Prince Ruspoli in Italy to perform. Important English dignitaries who came to the Italian Court urged Handel to visit London and after being appointed Kapellmeister to the Elector of the Court of Hanover, he was given permission to play in England.

 

When Handel arrived in England he was well received, and was granted a yearly pension of £200 by Queen Anne and King George I (a very generous sum at the time). He was also appointed 'Master of the Orchestra' of London's first Italian opera company. With such accolades and patronage to his name, it is unsurprising that Handel was a regular on London's elite social scene. He gained British citizenship in 1727 and became so well respected that Zadok the Priest, the anthem for King George II's coronation is still used as part of the Coronation ceremony today. Many of Handel's greatest works were written in the Brook Street home, including Messiah and Music for the Royal Fireworks.

 

Handel's lease on the home in Brook Street indicates that he had gained financial security from his operas and patronage, whereas he had previously resided in the stately homes of his European patrons. The house, which remains true to the fashion of Handel’s age, contains a performance room, a smaller composition room and a collection of fine art reminiscent of the composer's original collection. The museum was a labour of love, funded by a National Lottery Grant, which wasn't opened to the public until 2001. Many other residents, including an apothecary and clothing manufacturer Viyella had occupied the property since Handel's death, so a great deal of restoration work was required. 

 

The musical legacy of the house goes beyond classical music as Jimi Hendrix also lived in an upstairs flat in the 60s. As well as having the best of the 60s music scene on his doorstep, living in London introduced Hendrix to traditional British pleasures such as watching Coronation Street. He was also inspired by the previous tenant and would often listen to Handel's works. 

 

Continuing the house's great musical heritage, weekly concerts and recitals are held at the Museum on traditional harpsichords and spinets. Although the concerts do frequently honour the titular owner, composers such as Bach and Scarlatti are also performed. If you wish to visit, the Museum is open all year round, except for Mondays, Christmas, New Years Day and bank holidays. The Museum is well situated for transport and accommodation.  Hotels in the area can be expensive, but some good mid-range rates are available for those travelling on a budget. The Washington Mayfair Hotel is nearby and offers guests comfort in stylish surroundings. The Radisson Edwardian Berkshire Hotel is just seconds away from Bond Street tube station and offers the high-quality service and rooms you expect from such a reputable name. The Westbury Mayfair Hotel is a calm place to relax in bedrooms decorated in neutral tones with luxurious fittings. For a hotel with plenty of character and charm, Fleming's Hotel offers eclectic, colourful decor and personalised service for a comparably reasonable rate.

 

The Museum is well situated for Bond Street and Oxford Street shopping, and is just a five-minute walk from Bond Street tube station, which services the Jubilee and Central lines. Both these lines give you direct access to many other exciting parts of London. The museum is also just a ten-minute walk from Green Park tube station, which services the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines. From here you have direct links to Victoria Station (where the Gatwick Express Train terminates); King's Cross St Pancras Station (where the Eurostar terminates); and Heathrow Airport, which can be reached via the Piccadilly line. This gives you an idea of how fortuitous Handel's location was, placed very close to Buckingham Palace and Marble Arch, although the area is much more vibrant and exciting than in Handel's era, so you will be guaranteed an inspiring stay, whether you are musically inclined or not.
