What you'll do
Step into the psychedelic world of 60s London with our Guided Tour of the Hendrix Flat - Jimi Hendrix’s only recognized home in the world. The tour starts outside the entrance to 23 Brook Street, in front of the beautiful Georgian house that once sheltered the greatest guitarist of all time – Jimi Hendrix. You will hear all about the neighbourhood Jimi loved so much, from the clubs he frequented to the spots where he picked out the clothes which gave him his iconic look. You will then have the chance to walk in Jimi's steps, going through his front door and up his original staircase (not usually open to the public). Your tour guide will then walk you into the Hendrix Flat itself and paint the little-known picture of Hendrix at home through the stories of the time Hendrix spent here - from the late-night jamming sessions with George Harrison to the everyday life with his girlfriend at the time, Kathy Etchingham. Understand the man behind the legend at Handel & Hendrix in London.
I help run the guided tour programme at Handel & Hendrix in London. I work closely with our highly experienced volunteers to deliver in-depth, unique tours of both Handel House and Jimi Hendrix’s Flat. Many of our guides have been involved with the museum since its inception in 2001, others had a hand in the curation and restoration of Hendrix’s flat in 2016. Together, this knowledgeable team offers an exclusive insight into two great musical legacies, providing a rare opportunity to experience this historic building with the aid of your very own expert guide.
