About Handel House
Handel House at 25 Brook Street, Mayfair, is a very special historic place. It is where the great composer, George Frederic Handel, lived for 36 years – from 1723 to 1759 – and where he wrote many of his greatest masterpieces, including Messiah.
Making Handel’s House happen
Handel was the first occupant of 25 Brook Street. He moved in in 1723, when it was newly built. The Hallelujah Project will put back his home as closely as possible to exactly how it would have been when the great man himself lived here.
