Visit the homes of two musical innovators; composer George Frideric Handel and rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Jimi Hendrix.
In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history’s most significant musical artists. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frideric Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring baroque music, including Messiah.
