At 4 Clarence Road, just opposite Pittville Gates, is the Regency terrace house where Gustav Holst, composer of The Planets, was born.

The house is now a museum where the story of Holst and his music is told alongside a display of personal belongings, including his piano. The museum also features a Victorian kitchen and laundry, a Regency drawing room and an Edwardian nursery.
