Rock and Roll London Walk

Every Friday at 2pm

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.

There is no need to book for this tour - just turn up at the meeting point

The tour lasts just over two hours and costs 10pounds per person (8 pounds for full-time students and people aged 65+). Children under 15 go free if accompanied by an adult.

STREET FIGHTIN’ MEN - The Rolling Stones in London - click here for more information




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).
