This tour covers Chelsea, Kensington, Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate, St John’s Wood, Marylebone and the West End. We’re touring sites that made the ‘Sixties’ swinging and where both psychedelic and punk rock were born! See the boutiques, pubs, clubs and location that inspired hundreds of well-known lyrics. For Beatles fans, there’s Brian Epstein’s flat, Ringo’s Kings Road apartment, John and Yoko’s first home, Paul’s current home, the studio where the St Pepper’s cover was shot, Apple Office and boutique, EMI, Mason’s Yard, where the ‘Mop Tops’ played their last gif and lots more other Beatle related landmarks. YES, you do get to walk across that famed ABBEY ROAD crossing!
The tour also covers where Geldof conceived Band Aid and Live Aid, where and how the Sex Pistols was formed, the Clash’s neighbourhood, also home to Bob Marley. There are over a dozen iconic sites to please Pink Floyd fans and the same for Jimi Hendrix.
