London - Music Tour Specialists

London: a first rate destination for music tours, with venues for all group types, whether you're an orchestra, jazz band or choir.

London has some brilliant venues for both sacred and secular repertoires; even many of the churches, unlike elsewhere in Europe, do not insist that you perform religious pieces. 

However, sacred repertoires are required for the following fabulous venues: St. Martin in the Fields (where the London Chamber Choir perform their annual Christmas Concert), Southwark Cathedral, St. Paul's Cathedral and St. James'. Most of the parks have bandstands, which are open in the summer, and if you catch a sunny day you're sure to attract a good crowd. 

Many of us forget how much there is to see and do in our very own capital city; from the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace, a West End show, to the London Eye, whether you have an interest in history, art or economics, there is literally something for everyone and every group.

Cross-Curriculum Excursions

The Tower of London

Tower of London

London's most historic landmark oversaw imprisonment, torture, execution and murder most foul. See the site where the Princes of the Tower were supposedly murdered by their own uncle, Richard III, visit the torture chambers and observe the Beef Eaters and Ravens. The Tower currently houses the Crown Jewels but previous incarnations include a prison, zoo and Royal Palace. Make sure you check and see if there are any exhibitions taking place at the time you plan to go, so as not to miss out.

The Houses of Parliament

Houses of Parliament

If this is something you would be interested in doing, write a letter to your local MP, who should be able to help you gain admission. Your MP can organise a tour for you that takes you round the Chambers and up into Big Ben's clock tower. When the Houses are sitting, visitors can even sit in the galleries to observe committee meeting debates.

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace has served as the official Royal London Residence for the British monarchy since 1837 and it is still the administrative Headquarters for the Queen. It has 775 rooms in total, 19 of which are State Rooms, 52 of which are Royal and Guest bedrooms and 188 of which are staff bedrooms. Although the Queen's bedroom is obviously out-of-bounds, there are times when visitors have the opportunity to see some of the State rooms. Don’t miss the Changing of the Guard!

The Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum is an architectural masterpiece. It was built to be a Natural History Museum, which means that the architects were able to reflect its purpose in every edifice. The dinosaurs are always a popular place to start and don't miss the magnificent cross-section of a sequoia tree on the top floor, which dates back to around 400 AD.
