We are here to sell and hire out fine, modern upright and grand pianos, and to provide a unique working environment in central London for the music profession. Our team work to facilitate good music-making, and with integrity.
Peregrine's Pianos is the exclusive dealer in London for two of the finest German piano manufacturers - August Förster and Schimmel - and we like to keep the full range of their pianos in stock. The two companies represent very different production processes which we share with customers both on our website here and in the showroom.

We have vast experience in the smooth running of comfortable rehearsal facilities for the music profession and our strong legacy dates back to the establishment of Belsize Music Rooms in 1997. Our premier music rooms, which can accommodate up to fifty people, are the first choice for orchestras, opera and media companies, teachers and large numbers of independent professionals.
Our new piano showroom, called “Little Peregrine,” is located adjacent to our main showroom on Grays Inn Road. This is London's bright new home for preowned and hire pianos and already contains a fine selection of competitively priced instruments from various manufacturers. The launch party was held in February this year and the video above is a "fly on the wall" coverage of the event.

its acoustical expertise"
