PIN Keats House Museum

John Keats Home and Museum

About the experience:

For those of you poetry lovers, you will definitely love this one.

Keats House museum was once home to the Romantic poet, John Keats.

Located in his home in Hamsted, appreciate where the beauty of his poetry came from, where you can view manuscripts and artefacts which guide you through where he found his inspiration, and allow you really to conceptualise what could have influenced his poetry.

The house holds many special events during the year, with poetry performances, family fun days and the ability to read his poetry (of course!) or watch a movie on his life or alternatively write your own poem! -Definitely would recommend this for those of you looking for a cultured day out!

A little taste of what magic to expect..

For those of you who are not as aware of his work, here is a little taster of one of his sonnets- "To Ailsa Rock",

"Hearken, thou craggy ocean pyramid!
Give answer from thy voice, the sea-fowl’s screams!
When were thy shoulders mantled in huge streams!
When, from the sun, was thy broad forehead hid?
How long is ‘t since the mighty power bid
Thee heave to airy sleep from fathom dreams?
Sleep in the lap of thunder or sun-beams,
Or when gray clouds are thy cold cover-lid?
Thou answer’st not, for thou art dead asleep!
Thy life is but two dead eternities —
The last in air, the former in the deep;
First with the whales, last with the eagle-skies —
Drown’d wast thou till an earthquake made thee steep,
Another cannot wake thy giant size."
