“I dreamed for 30 years of walking across Abbey Road. It was amazing but I never expected to see all this other stuff. Your guide was so knowledgeable and a great entertainer. It was nearly 4 hours of pure magic!” Peter Jennings, Canada
We call this our Classic Rock Legends tour because it covers sites and locations relevant to the history of so many 60s, 70s and 80s artists in the elite neighbourhoods of Chelsea, Kensington, Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate and St. John’s Wood. Tour the sites that made the Sixties swing; where London’s hippie underground ‘counter-culture’ took off; and where the 70s punk revolution took place! See the boutiques, pubs and clubs that MADE these decades, inspiring hundreds of well-known lyrics and melodies!
YES, you do get to walk across that famed ABBEY ROAD crossing!
This is the ORIGINAL London Rock Tour! Accept no substitutes or posers! If classic rock acts such as Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Bob Marley, Queen and the Rolling Stones are your favourites then this is the tour for you! The tour also covers where Geldof conceived Band Aid and Live Aid, where and how the Sex Pistols was formed, the Clash’s neighbourhood and the cradle of Reggae. We pass the homes of Freddie Mercury, Jimmy Page, McCartney and Clapton, and see where Jimi Hendrix died. With so many celebrities living in these parts of London you never know who you might see in passing! For Stones fans there’s the legendary Edith Grove apartment, various of Jagger’s houses plus studios, record company offices, gig sites, secluded hotels, album cover locations and story, after story from your informed rock guide.
