HALF DAY PRIVATE NORTH LONDON OUTLINE:
“…I enjoy walking Camden Market in the afternoon…”
CAMDEN, NORTH LONDON – Explore via vehicle & on foot around vibrant Camden. Like the song says, come and join your tour guide for a short walk through Camden Market.
The list of artists playing Camden venues is long and illustrious and includes Taylor Swift, One Direction, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Christina Aguilera, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Thom Yorke, Amy Winehouse, Wolf Alice, The Killers, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Lily Allen, Demi Lovato, Usher, Ramones, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mumford & Sons, Manic Street Preachers, The Clash, Prince, Madonna, Coldplay, Blondie, Janelle Monae, Lady Gaga to name a few highlights!
Long before Amy Winehouse made this area her playground early 00s, here was the stomping ground for hippie London in 60s, The Clash and punk bands in the 70s, then Madness and U2 in the 80s, Oasis, Blur and their Brit Pop rivalries in the 90s. This is an area known for street art, where a guy called Banksy started too.
PRIMROSE HILL & BELSIZE PARK – This is a leafy, quiet part of London, where many artists/musicians/actors like to call home thanks to its village quality. With your tour guide, take a stroll past some of these scenic, colourful homes. Even pass by “Paddington’s house!”
This area was the hard partying central for the so called “Primrose Hill Set” of the Brit Pop 90s. Now, more of a ‘juice bar’ vibe.
Local residents include/have included Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, Robert Plant, Liam and Noel Gallagher of Oasis, Chris Martin & Jonny Buckland of Coldplay, Tim Burton, poets Sylvia Plath & Ted Hughes, author Alan Bennett, Kate Moss, actors Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Sadie Frost, Patsy Kensit, Helena Bonham-Carter…
Also see Primrose Hill itself, a lovely park, scene to many picnics, film & photo shoots for Stones, Oasis and more, film location for Bridget Jones & Paddington, as well as inspiration for many songs.
“Took me back to Highgate…”
“…Like a Tennessee Stella McCartney on the Heath…”
HIGHGATE & HAMPSTEAD HEATH – More local North London highlights, scenic Hampstead Heath, and visit the pub said to be the inspiration for Taylor Swift’s song London Boy, this and other hang-outs for Harry Styles, Rita Ora, and others.
This area is also central for George Michael and Ray Davies of The Kinks.
BREAK OPTION – depending on your personal pop favs, there is the option to grab a snack at Nando’s like 1D, or a kebab from the shop featured in Taylor’s End Game video – or even a famous One Direction milkshake at the lads’ favourite dessert café! Spoilt for choice, this is YOUR OWN private tour, tailored to best suit you. (Subject to shop opening times.)
ABBEY ROAD & BBC BROADCASTING HOUSE – Of course any London music tour should include a stop at the world’s most famous street crossing! In addition to The Beatles, Taylor Swift, One Direction/Harry Styles, Kate Bush and Lady Gaga have all recorded here too, among many others. Plus, BBC Broadcasting House is home of BBC Radio, where many live tracks of your favs were recorded. Spoilt for choice in this capital city of music!
“… Louis V up on Bond Street… “
“And now I love high tea, stories from uni, and the West End…”
“I enjoy walking Soho, drinking in the afternoon (yeah)…”
MAYFAIR/SOHO/WEST END – The finale of your tour, either half or full day option, should be in London’s Soho area, the West End theatre district, where One Direction (This is Us) and Taylor Swift (Eras Tour) each hosted their film premieres.
Possibly route via Mayfair, where the famous high-end boutiques, restaurants & clubs are located. Pass by Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney & Vivienne Westwood’s shops. Pass the clubs frequented by Harry Styles and his crew, Rita Ora, Beyonce & Jay-Z when they’re in town…
Option to see the properties where Rhianna, Beyonce & Jay-Z, P!nk, Will.I.Am, Lady Gaga, James Corden, Angelina Jolie and others stay when they are in London.
Finish your tour in a location where you can visit the “One Direction red phone box” & other UK pop memorabilia!
