Composers of the West End
A music-themed private tour, touching on the lighter side, about composers connected with the Strand and some of the places where their music was performed.
Not only does this private walking tour cover a variety of classical composers but also theatre and opera productions plus some world-class performance venues in London’s West End.
Hear how European influences, including George Frederic Handel and other notable composers helped secure the future of London’s increasingly sophisticated classical music scene and how that created popular offshoots in operetta and musicals.
Enjoy walking through Regency London with its wide straight streets and square. Marvel at the neoclassical theatre designed by architect John Nash before embarking on the Victorian centre for entertainment before finishing in iconic Covent Garden.
