The apartment where rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix lived and died in London is set to become a tourist attraction from next year.

He lived at 23 Brook Street in London’s posh Mayfair section, adjacent to the home where composer George Frideric Handel had lived two centuries earlier.

The Handel House Trust that owns both properties has spent two years and £2.4 million ($3.7 million) restoring Hendrix’s apartment.

It has been made to look as it did in 1969, when he played some of his most famous concerts.

Trust chairman Alistair Stranack said Tuesday Hendrix’s circle of friends and acquaintances helped provide details about his life there.

‘We hope that the opening of Jimi Hendrix’s flat will give people an added insight into the life and work of a figure whose actions have been examined no end since his death in 1970.

‘Our research into the building and Hendrix’s circle of friends and acquaintances has enabled us to present an image of what life was like in his time at Brook Street.

‘While it has been a pleasure to have been working in Jimi’s bedroom for the past few years, it is even more pleasing to be able to throw it open to everybody else.’

Tickets for the Hendrix Flat will go on sale on November 2, 2015.
