Travel for the Arts was established in 1988, to arrange tours for the Friends of Covent Garden, and now arranges over 100 tours a year, as a division of Specialised Travel Ltd.
We arrange small group tours featuring selected performances of opera, ballet and classical music, and à la Carte itineraries for the independent traveller. Our portfolio of destinations expands annually, introducing lesser-known theatres and performances whilst continuing to visit the traditional favourites.
Travel for the Arts is staffed by a team of specialists with a wealth of experience in travel, music and the arts, who are involved in the planning of every tour from conception to operation. Our team regularly travel as tour managers on a selection of our tours to ensure that we maintain our knowledge of each destination.
The success of our tours depends very much on our experts. All our tours are planned and led by travel experts in travel and performing arts. Many of our tour managers are also professional musicians and music specialists. Below is just a selection of the many people who work with us to ensure that you have the best experience possible.
