This elegant Regency house was the home of John Keats, the golden boy of the Romantic poets from 1818 to 1820. It was here that Keats met his fiancée Fanny Brawne, who was literally the girl next door. Keats wrote his most celebrated poem '...More

This is a haven of peace where you can discover or rediscover such beautiful poetry... The film is worth watching to understand a little the life of a brilliant poet.
