Meeting Point: Exit 1, Tottenham
Court Road Underground Station
All roads once lead to Rome… now they lead to London.
In terms of rock’n’roll this is an inarguable fact. Big bucks may
well be made in Hollywood… but rock’n’roll reputations are made
here in The Big Smoke. The cast list of this NEW London Walk reads
as a who’s who of the music: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones,
The Who, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols,
The Clash, Blur and Oasis. Each act has a London tale to tell,
often a tale so decadent that Caligula himself would blush*. London
Calling. Lend an ear. Guided by Adam, Richard or Rex.

THE SWINGING 60s EXPERIENCE BUS TOURS
FROM THE HARD ROCK TO THE ROLLING STONES
Come and take a trip with me on this original 1960s London bus
every Sunday (see exceptions), leaving the Hard Rock Cafe in London’s
Piccadilly at 2.30 sharp on a magical mystery tour through West
London's cradle of Rock to One Kew Road, Richmond, formally the
Station Hotel, original home to the Crawdaddy Club, where The Rolling
Stones’career kicked off in 1963.
Tours take in the homes of celebrated 60s music legends and locations
like Eel Pie Island and Twickenham Studios where The Beatles fimed
‘HELP!’ and ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. You’ll see where Rod Stewart got
his first break and pass by iconic music venues in Barnes and Putney.
We’ll transport you down the King’s Road and it’s many iconic locations
like the Chelsea Drug Store, immortalised by The Stones, where Swinging
60s fashion was created and sold and where Roman Polanski married
Sharon Tate in 1968.
In addition to my live commentary, you’ll hear hit music by the
seminal artists who regularly performed at local venues such as
The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart,The Beatles, Elton John, The Yardbirds,
David Bowie, The Who, Cream, Pink Floyd, The Kinks, Manfred Mann,
The Animals and Deep Purple.
NOTE One Kew Road is immediately opposite Richmond Station with
fast and frequent train/tube services back to central London).
