200 years ago, Keats moved to Bo-Peep

On Friday 23 May 1817, Keats and his brother Tom left Canterbury. Tom returned to Hampstead. Keats (in his quest for the perfect place to continue writing ‘Endymion’) moved to Bo-Peep (now St Leonards-on-Sea). Here he would soon meet the enigmatic Mrs Isabella Jones, who would inspire several of his important poems.
