    • The Holst Birthplace Museum aims to celebrate the life and works of Gustav Holst, composer of The Planets. The museum was opened by Holst's daughter Imogen in 1975. Built in 1832, the birthplace is a mid-terrace townhouse of typical Regency style, retaining original nineteenth century features. Special events - Victorian Days, music lectures, Regency cookery sessions, children's activities - happening throughout the year. There is a specialist shop for Holst's music on CD and other Holst / music / Victorian life-themed gifts.
