Keats Restuarant May 17, 2011
I really enjoyed the food here, wholesome family meals!! Throughly recommend for every occassion, staff were friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, even when I mistakenly chose a fish dish, it couldn't of been easier to send back and have it replaced.

Keats House Nov 05, 2009
Keats House is a must see for anyone fond of the Romantic poets, and, of course John Keats! When you arrive at the museum, you can listen to a presentation about the life of Keats and it is very interesting. You are allowed the liberty to roam freely throughout the house and it is quite lovely, and just very inspiring to be in a place where John Keats once lived and worked; he wrote "Ode to a Nightingale" there too! There are quite a few items there that once belonged to Keats or to someone he was close to. There is a nice little gift shop there too. I purchased a really old (c. 1887) copy of "Endymion" for a few pounds.

It is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon if you are a fan of Keats. The museum/house is very well kept, and since my visit has been restored even further. Keats house is in a very nice neighborhood too. I took the tube there and it was a short walk (maybe 15 minutes at most)from the tube. There are plenty of restuarants nearby and shops as well; they even have a starbucks up the street.

Beauty is truth, truth beauty... that is all
.. good lines and all interesting stuff in verse.. died very young otherwise would have left Shakespeare behind himself... The sedge has withered from the lake and no birds sing... start your blog with some poetic line of Keats... it may be... A thing of beauty is a joy forever
