London Rock Tour: Original Rock Music Walking Tours
Why travel with a copycat, when you can go with the ORIGINAL London Rock
Hippies/Mods v The Establishment
Our exploration of this ‘ultra rich’ area is centred around the squares – Sloane Square, Eaton Square, Belgrave Square – and their surrounding small streets and mews where, back in the 60s, was an idiological battleground of young musicians and fledgling ‘Hollywood-ites’ against the older ‘bowler hats’ of The Establishment.
See early London homes of The Beatles, of their manager Brian Epstein, the home where he died. Our route takes in the former homes of Pete Townsend, Lambert & Stamp, Stones’ Brian Jones, a Bee Gee, Marianne Faithfull, The Pretty Things, and Hollywood legends Judy Garland and Vivien Leigh. This is where a young Sharon Tate began her film career, where Jim Morrison hung up his leather trousers, and where Donny Osmond washed out his purple socks! This is also the setting for popular costume dramas, Upstairs/Downstairs, Downton Abbey and Julia Fellowes’ Belgravia. Weekdays, the evening break can be at a place known to the Fab Four!
MEETING POINT: outside Sloane Square tube station
