Pink Floyd’s Cambridge & London (FULL DAY/LR5)

“I went along because of my husband but was really surprised at how much I enjoyed the day. The tour is certainly much more than just the story of Pink Floyd but they provide a good excuse to see some lovely places.”
Katherine, USA



Why travel with a copycat, when you can go with the ORIGINAL London Rock Tour!

If you’re a fan of the Floyd then this is for you – some say a near perfect day, discovering the musical roots and early adventures of one of the world’s greatest bands!

CAMBRIDGE & LONDON PINK FLOYD SPECIAL TOUR — ‘Walls, Moons and Flying Pigs’… Pink Floyd were a band of two cities – the ancient, medieval university city of Cambridge, and the UK’s capital of London. Band members Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour were raised in Cambridge, and many of their Cambridge friends, including girlfriends, roadies and album cover designers Storm Thorgerson and ‘Po’ Powell, became part of the Pink Floyd extended creative family. In London they met up with Nick Mason and Rick Wright, while students, and here they forged the unique Pink Floyd sound against the backdrop of the late ‘60’s counter-culture and succeeding decades.

This great tour combines the two and gives you a chance to see one of England’s most attractive and historic cities and parts of London you’d otherwise not see, while exploring the Floyd’s heritage.

Cambridge: early homes of Gilmour, Waters and Barrett, their schools and colleges, early gig sites and important reference points like ‘Granchester Meadows’ and Syd’s last home. You’ll also be getting a short walking tour of the historic city and university!

North London: Islington & Ally Pally! There’s the Floyd’s own Britannia Row studios, the school that provided the school kids choir on ‘The Wall’ and also the famed Ally Pally’ – location of the ’14-hour Technicolour Dream’ – Then, as time permits, we may also be able to include UFO club and the Regents Street Polytechnic where the band was formed. How much time for London places of interest depends on traffic.

During the day, get the full history of the band from your knowledgeable rock guide.

NOTE – the majority of your day is spent in Cambridge, and just North London highlights on this Cambridge/London full day tour.
