Above Westminster the Thames is quite frozen over...Many fantastical experiments are daily put in practice, as certain youths burnt a gallon of wine upon the ice and made all the passengers partakers. but the best is of an honest woman (they say) that had a great longing to have her husband get her with child upon the Thames.
-- John Chamberlain January 8 1608

Handel House Museum Description: Handel lived in London for fifty years and for most of that period at 25 Brook Street where he died in 1759. It was here that he composed and rehearsed his greatest works which were such an integral part of life in Georgian London. In November 2001, the Handel House Museum, located in No. 25 and the adjoining No. 23 opened for the first time to the general public. It includes restored early Georgian interiors and displays of fine and decorative arts as well as temporary exhibitions. It is the first museum devoted to a composer in London and the gentle ambience (and spirit of the composer) can make any visit a very moving experience. Not to be missed.
