Hear and See London’s Rock ‘n’ Roll History
You will be treated to live commentary by your London cabbie, who is a specially trained London tour guide and an expert in London’s Rock ‘n’ Roll History
Hear the stories of these places and people that shaped the history of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
The British Beat
The ’60s and ’70s saw an explosion of “British Beat” music: a fusion of rock, doo wop, R&B, jazz, blues, folk, and soul.
Pioneer groups such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and The Kinks lived and performed in London while making their mark on modern musical history.
See the places and hear the stories of these legends that shaped the history of Rock n Roll.
The Fab Four
In 1963, The Beatles migrated from Liverpool to London. Visit their recording studios, film locations, homes, and hangouts – past and present
- Abbey Road’s iconic zebra crossing (get the camera ready!)
- Abbey Road Studios. Sign the famous wall.
- London Palladium, where the Beatles first live TV performance took place
- Apple Records Headquarters
- Indica Gallery, where John met a certain avant-garde artist. Hear about the moment their eyes locked and John knew “that was it”.
- Macca’s London pad in St. Johns Wood
- The location of the historic Beatles ‘rooftop session’
- The only place the Beatles ever lived together
- ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘Help!’ film locations
- and more
On your tour, you will see other monumental London landmarks and hear the stories about
- Carnaby Street – the centre of 60s culture
- Denmark Street – Europe’s best music street
- The Rolling Stones
- The Who
- Elton John
- Jimmy Hendrix
- David Bowie
- Pink Floyd
- and other Rock legends. The list is endless.
Here’s a Taster of the places and stories that await you
Did you know that Keith Moon and Mama Cass died in the same flat? The London Mayfair flat was owned by their mutual friend, singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. Visit this posh London neighbourhood and hear the unfortunate tale.
Can you name the “50 Moments that Changed the History of Rock and Roll”? One such moment was the night in London when instrument demolition became an intricate part of The Who’s live performances. We’ll tell you the story!
Visit London’s “Tin Pan Alley” – Europe’s best music street. Rock and Roll history was made here. As early as the 1920s, a niche musical community developed here, which still remains today. In this friendly and atmospheric street, there’s always music wafting from basements, shop windows and balconies.
The disturbing “space invader” cover for David Bowie’s 1972 album, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars”, was photographed in an ordinary backstreet of London. This small side-street has for many Bowie fans the same significance as Abbey Road or Jim Morrison’s grave in Paris. We’ll take you there!
