My Name is Handel - NOW SOLD AT HANDEL HOUSE MUSEUM IN LONDON
Handel House is located on Brook Street in the heart of the very fashionable Mayfair section in central London. This lovely house - Handel’s home for nearly 30 years – was as fashionable then as it is today. If you have a very rich great aunt taking you out in London, you should suggest visiting Handel House first and then going to high tea at Claridge’s,
Actually, getting into Handel House is an adventure in itself as you must go down an alley, make a left turn through a small stone arch, take the cobblestone foot path and enter the museum’s main entrance from the back. The ground floor is such valuable retail space that the museum lets it out and has restored all the rooms above. They have musical instruments, paintings, period furniture, and occasionally hold concerts there.
They also have a very nice gift shop where “My Name Is Handel: The Story of Water Music” by Maestro Classics is now sold.
