Inside Handel House Museum

We finally visited Handel House Museum, the place where the legendary composer stayed for 36 years until his death in 1759. There was a lot to take in, but it was unfortunate that photography was not allowed, except in this room, where we were allowed to try some costumes too. You can see a harpsichord behind me, in the other room.

I have spent endless hours listening to Handel. Little did I imagine that I would one day visit the very home where many of those compositions were penned. It was all too much for me…and I was grateful that I was one of the very few fortunate ones to walk in the very room where George Frideric Handel lived, composed and finally died.

Incidentally, the room inside which I am photographed above, was occupied by Jimi Hendrix for some time.
