A London venue is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the memory of legendary Gibson Flying V guitar player Jimi Hendrix.

The occasion marks the 40th anniversary of the musician's death, with handwritten notes from the star among the items available to be viewed at the Handel House Museum in Mayfair.

One of the letters details Hendrix's navigation notes for how to get to the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, which was one of his last performances on stage with the Gibson Flying V guitar, which is also part of the Hendrix in Britain exhibition.

Speaking to BBC News, director of the Handel House Museum Sarah Bardwell stated that creating the exhibition has been a "revelation".

She added: "We have thoroughly enjoyed working with people who actually knew him and who have been able to give us first-hand accounts.

"The exhibits … provide a fascinating snapshot of his important time in Britain."

Hendrix died at the Samarkand Hotel in Notting Hill in September 1970 at the age of 27.
