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.

During the tour we'll visit:
Studio 51, where one legendary night the Beatles bumped into the Stones
2ii's cafe, where many British music acts launched their careers
The Marquee club, where the Stones, Bowie and Fleetwood Mac played their first ever gigs, and where The Who and Eric Clapton launched their careers,
Denmark street and Trident studios, where the Beatles, the Stones and Bowie recorded their most famous songs,
The Abbey Road street crossing and Abbey road studios. . . and more. . . you get the idea
At the end, we'll finish back at your hotel, or other agreed upon spot.
