London Rock Tour: Original Rock Music Tours
Why travel with a copycat, when you can go with the ORIGINAL London Rock Tour!
Explore places of ‘Beatlemania’ such as the Apple Corp office, where the famous rooftop concert took place, plus Epstein’s offices, where John met Yoko, the painting that inspired the Apple Corp logo and stories of the legendary venue The London Palladium. There’s a Bowie album cover ‘to get into,’ the plaque for Ziggy Stardust, and early Bowie gig locations. See where Jimi Hendrix shared space with ‘the ghost of Handel’ and uncover the inspiration for Hendrix’s The Wind Cries Mary.
Explore the posh area of Mayfair, home to many swingin’ 60s clubs where the rock stars partied in private. See where Hendrix first performed in the capital, where he met his steady girlfriend, and where some of rock’s most iconic photos were taken.
And Carnaby Street and the surrounding streets, where The Who, Hendrix, Beatles, Brian Jones, Rod Stewart, Small Faces, later Boy George, Sex Pistols, Siouxsie & the Banshees and more all shopped. Discover early hip hop venues, an early gig location for Amy Winehouse, and the fashion hubs from early 60s through the 80s happened.
