I returned to Keats House with my friend Jackie and we went around the house visiting kitchen and going over some of the items on display. Jackie set up a digital camera for me and my first posted photograph is now on this post!

Some letters say that Keats was inspired to write his Ode to a Nightingale in the garden. There are also many profiles and silhouettes of Keats, who became famous after his death. His poetry became part of the Byron, Keats and Shelley list of romantic poets which has stayed in fashion.
There is a wide selection of postcards on sale and a very attractive illustrated guide book to both the house and on Keats himself. Books of Keats's poetry are also available. I bougtht two: Keats at Wentworth Place - poems written December 1818 to September 1820, published by London Borough of Camden Libraries and Arts Department; and a Dover Thrift Edition of Lyric Poems.
There is a concession admission for £3 and the ticket is valid for a year. The house sits back from the road in an attractive garden with a path encircling the house.
