  • Description

    See over 100 other iconic locations bringing to life the colourful histories of classic, progressive, punk and Brit-Rock acts. You’ll visit Soho and the North London neighbourhoods of Camden Town, Islington and St John’s Wood during this musical London tour.

     This bus tour visits many Beatle-related sites, including the Abbey Road crossing, the theatre they owned, the early NEMS office and McCartney’s office. In Soho we find clubs such as the Marquee, Ronnie Scott’s, the 2is and legendary UFO; Trident Studios where Queen, Genesis, Bowie, Bolan and others made influential albums!

     In ‘Tin Pan Alley’ you’ll hear about the Stone’s first recording session, Elton’s ‘Woolworth’ albums, how Bowie lived in a caravan, where the Sex Pistols rehearsed and lived, where Bob Dylan played his first London gig. Later you’ll see where Pink Floyd cut 'The Wall'; where Hendrix first burnt his guitar; where Jimmy Page cut his first disc in Joe Meek’s home studio (the ‘Telstar’ man); where Elton John tried to commit suicide. Also on this fantastic tour, see the apartments and homes of Pete Townsend, Elton, the Sex Pistols, Ritchie Blackmore, Syd Barrett, the Gallagher brothers, and where Amy Winehouse ended her short and problem-filled life. 

    For the afternoon portion of the tour which covers Chelsea, Kensington, Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate, St John's Wood, Marylebone and the West End. We're touring sites that made the 'Sixties' swinging and where both psychedelic and punk rock were born! See the boutiques, pubs, clubs and location that inspired hundreds of well-known lyrics.
