The Cradle of Britsh Blues and Rock - in a 60s Routemaster Bus!


This 3 hour, immersive, guided tour on a vintage London bus is ideal for groups and individuals with a common interest in one of the most defining decades of 20th Century Britain. You’ll hear about the birth of popular music and the counterculture that spawned Swinging 60s London on your journey from the Hard Rock Cafe in Piccadilly, down the Kings Road in Chelsea to Richmond via West London’s cradle of Blues & Rock.

Tours start at the Hard Rock Cafe in London’s Piccadilly and finish at One Kew Road in Richmond, formally the Station Hotel and home to the original Crawdaddy Club where The Rolling Stones launched their career back in February 1963. This tour takes in homes of celebrated 60s music legends and music locations like Eel Pie Island and Twickenham Studios where The Beatles filmed ‘HELP!’ and ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. You’ll see where Rod Stewart got his first break and pass by other iconic music venues along the route of this 3 hour tour on our vintage London bus.
Tour options include pick up at Richmond’s One Kew Road where we host live 60s music by some of the world’s top legend and tribute bands. One Kew Road is immediately opposite Richmond Station with fast and frequent train / tube services back to all parts of London.
