“This Paradise I give thee, count it thine…”

Paradise Lost, Book VIII, line 319



What’s on

Discover a literary paradise at Milton’s Cottage – the only surviving home of the visionary poet, parliamentarian and pamphleteer John Milton.

He came here to escape an earlier pandemic, the Great Plague of 1665, and complete his epic masterpiece Paradise Lost.

Today, this Grade I listed building is open to the public as a museum, so everyone can experience where literary history was made.
