I think it's important to point out that these
pictures were taken 10 years ago, during the Keats
bicentennial [that would be 1995-Ed]. You can see from some of the pictures
that the house needed some sprucing up. I recently
read that Keats house was rennovated in 2003 and that
the interrior was stripped and re-painted to look as
it did when Keats actually lived there. Through the
restoration, they were able to discern that in Keats's
day the rooms' color scheme was off white and
green--quite different from what the rooms look like
in my pics.

When I was there, part of the house (the rooms above
the Brawne's sitting rooms) was not available to the
public--so I have no pics of those rooms. However, it
is my understanding that now after the rennovation
several rooms that were closed are open to the public.

Nice post, lot of place to be toured. Having a tour with friends or family are very fun, I never forget the first time I have a tour together with my friends. We have learned a lot from the tour guide and the places :)
