Handel and Hendrix House
Handel and Hendrix in London reopened to the public earlier this year following a £2 million, fifteen-month construction project to complete the restoration of George Frideric Handel’s (1685-1759) home at 25 Brook Street and to carry out works within No. 23, where Jimi Hendrix lived. No. 25 was reconfigured, recreating its interiors and both buildings were re-serviced. The ground-floor front and rear parlours and Handel’s lower-ground floor kitchen were recreated along with the basement front area and railings. Gaining approval to reopen the area, despite resistance from the local authority highways department was a significant heritage victory.
