The musical neighbourhood tours of Covent Garden and Marylebone cover every musical genre under the sun – opera, pop & rock, music hall, classical and more. In Marylebone we’ll also look at the story of broadcasting in the UK while in Covent Garden we’ll unpack the history of recording in Europe and look at the evolution of the pop video.

The dedicated band/composer guided tours find Handel, Pink Floyd and The Kinks in their London habitats. We’ll visit the locations of their lives – where they lived, worked, played. We’ll look at how London shaped their work.

On the Bob Dylan tour Adam will make sure you get THAT pic at the scene of Dylan’s famous Subterranean Homesick Blues clip

The Music Of Royal London made its debut in 2021 and returns this year. The tour looks at the music that soundtracked the royal story – from Handel’s coronation anthem to Madness on top of Buckingham Palace singing Our House. We’ll have cameos from Mozart, Chopin, The Beatles and Louis Armstrong along the way. 

Women In Music will also return to the schedule. The track listing for this tour is one of the most varied in the repertoire: Judy Garland rubs shoulders with 18th century soprano Francesca Cuzzoni; punk legends Siouxsie & The Banshees duet with folk stalwart Peggy Seeger. We’ll cover jazz, pop, music hall and even country music along the way.

On the Beatles tours tour Adam will hang back at the end to make sure you get that iconic shot of the crossing lined up absolutely perfectly
