What does English history sound like?

Well the last 300 years has sounded like the music of George Frideric Handel - the composer who has soundtracked every coronation since that of King George II in 1727.

On this virtiual tour we'll look at 18th Century London, consider Handel's rivals and look at the contemporaneous European music scene. We'll also look at his place among the great and good of London society.

"Delivered in an interesting & humorous way… Adam is Mr Music and his lnowledge encyclopedic"

Bruce H, Tripadvisor

The drama of the divas Bordoni and Cuzzoni will certainly add a few fireworks... we'll chart the rise and fall of his opera company, take a trip to Chelsea on the river and visit his famous Brook Street residence.

"A great virtual tour - fun and full of information"

Nancy882, Tripadvisor

Join me to celebrate the life and work of the greatest Englishman ever born in Germany.

My name is Adam Scott-Goulding I'm a qualified tour guide working in London and, like everyone else, COVID-19 turned my working life upside down.

In early 2020 I began staging virtual tours on ZOOM. The virtual tours proved to be hugely popular and are now running in tandem alongside my Walking Tours in London.

As well as leading tours I'm also a visiting lecturer in tour guiding at the University of Westminster.
