Michael – the busker from New York – starting his musical day in Abbey Church Yard. Always stops at 10.30 on the dot to let us Mayor’s Guides call in our tour group and give them a safety briefing before starting off on our two-hour trip around the city.

It’s Hallelujah all round as students and busker Michael raise the Abbey Church Yard ‘roof’ with Leonard Cohen’s iconic song.

Today – while singing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ -he had an appreciative group of young French students – outside the Roman Baths – to sing the chorus.

We all waited this time for him to finish the song and then applause all round.

Mayor’s Guides leave from outside the Pump Room every day at 10.30 and again at 2pm. No charge. More information via www.bathguides.org.uk
