See where the Beatles & other 60s icons made music history


This walking tour includes the must-see London locations for fans of the Beatles including the famous Abbey Road album-cover crossing, Abbey Road Studios and their offices where they played their final (rooftop) concert.

. . . And The Rolling Stones (where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards auditioned for the band, where they played their first-EVER gig and where they recorded their first songs).

. . . And David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and other 60s legends.

I feel that the Soho area is the most fascinating in London, centuries of history (it's the old royal and literary quarter) but also vibrant and modern (trendy eateries and famous jazz clubs). I look forward to showing you around and telling you all about it.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jason was very knowledgeable about the music scene in the 60's and beyond (even some before). He and my 18 year old son hit it off. They both are writers and enjoy the same music. It was great to see the friendship between them. Our age range was from 18 to 76 and Jason was able to keep everyone engaged in the topic. We will definitely book Jason again for the Rock n Roll Tour and for his Literature tour when we come back.
