Q: DO YOUR WALKING TOURS TAKE PLACE IN THE RAIN?

A: Yes. London Music Tours take place rain or shine.

Q: WHERE IS MY BOOKING CONFIRMATION?

A: If you have booked and prepaid a London Music Tour, please be assured that your booking confirmation will be with you via email within 48 hours of the time of your booking.

Q: ARE THE WALKS INSIDE OR OUTSIDE?

A: If a tour visits an interior then that will be made clear in the tour description. Mostly our tours take place outside.

Q: ARE YOUR TOURS DOG FRIENDLY?

A: Yes. If we visit an interior on a tour which is NOT dog friendly it will say so on the tour description.

Q: WHY DO I NEED AN OYSTERCARD/TRAVELPASS FOR YOUR BEATLES TOURS AND YOUR HANDEL TOURS?

A: On the Beatles tours we travel from the West End to St John’s Wood to finish at the famous Abbey Road crossing. On the Handel’s London tour we use the tube to cover as many locations as possible. Please buy/arrange your tickets before joining the tour to make the most of your time. Full info on travelling by tube can be found at the Transport For London website here: www.tfl.gov.uk

A: Under 18’s may not be admitted to the pub – this is at the pub landlord’s discretion.

A: Yes, please feel free to take as many pictures as you like but NO filming or audio recording please.

Q: HOW FAR DO WE WALK ON YOUR TOURS?

A: Each tour is different but you should expect to cover at least a mile. No tour is any longer than 1.5 miles.

A: Yes. You can book private tours or individual places on scheduled walking tours. Free gift card is included. Please note that I will need at least 7 days notice to make sure the gift card arrives on time. To arrange a gift voucher drop me a line.
