The experience

Step into a world of culture, history and music with a guided tour of Handel & Hendrix in London. Our tours allow you to find out the full stories of our two musical masters, George Frideric Handel and Jimi Hendrix.

Travel back in time in the music rooms where Handel composed, rehearsed and performed along with fellow musical luminaries of the Baroque age. Stand where the great composer wrote Messiah, and see the fabled windows from which he allegedly threatened to throw his sopranos out if they refused to sing his arias.

Keep ascending to the third floor where the swinging 60s await you. Become immersed in 23 Brook Street, the flat where Jimi lived, loved and wrote songs at the height of his fame in 1969. Taking special place in the iconic guitarist’s heart, it was here that Jimi called home.
