Description of 25 Brook Street

Handel House Museum at 25 Brook Street in Mayfair, London W1.

Built in 1720.

The building was home to composer George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759. Here is where Handel composed some of the greatest music in history, including Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks.

The Museum celebrates Handel's life and works, displaying portraits of Handel and his contemporaries in finely restored Georgian interiors and by bringing live music back to his house. Frequent music rehearsals, weekly concerts and special musical events in addition to regular displays and exhibitions bring Handel's world to life.
