A brand NEW London Music Tour  – Musical Variations On A Theme Of Kensington.

South Kensington as we know it today was built for art and culture in the aftermath of the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Music is woven into the fabric of the place – not least in the Royal Albert Hall, one of the world’s most famous concert halls. The Royal College of Music evolved out of the same era. This tour covers the 19th century and adds in Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd, the Cromwellian Club of the 1960s, Freddie Mercury and Queen as well as Hubert Parry, Lloyd Webber, the wondrously ornate College of Organists and more.

These new musical neighbourhood tours (see also Covent Garden & Marylebone) are designed to deepen your appreciation of the famous musicians who lived, loved and worked here. They’ll also deepen your understanding of the symphony of London.


Meet Adam at the top of the steps (by the pharmacy) of South Kensington Tube.

  1. Steven

    Great fun interactive walk with excellent knowledgeable guide. Don’t miss it!

  2. HW

    A walk that combines music and history – 400 years of it, all in two hours. Absolutely riveting. The walk takes place in a particularly lovely part of London, includes visits to museums and Adam provides a wealth of information with charm, humour and enthusiasm. Quite superb.

  3. Ben Duff

    Great value for money. The host Adam was knowledgeable and entertaining. It was the debut of this particular walk but you would never have known it. Adam was full of interesting stories and anecdotes and made everyone feel welcome and included throughout. He’d even put together a music playlist which he referred to throughout the walk and played musical clips to illustrate his stories. A lot of effort had been put into everything. My wife and I had a great time. Highly recommended.

  4. Jo H

    Thoroughly enjoyed this musical tour of Kensington! Very varied and full of interesting historical facts and anecdotes! It includes a brief visit to the Science Museum and the Royal College of Music, I would highly recommend this walk!

  5. John B

    A fascinating walk in an area full of historic and beautiful buildings. The two museum visits really made the tour special especially the Royal College of Music. Highly recommend.
