A Tour of London and it's famous and iconic music venues. See the locations that changed music history.


Rock n Roll may have started in the USA but it was in London that it was shaped into the sounds we know today.

Journey with me through Soho, the West End and the locations made famous in the swinging sixties.

We will see where Led Zeppelin was formed, where the Rolling Stones held their first audition, the famous Abbey Road crossing and the haunts of the world's greatest music acts. We will see where some of the worlds most well known tracks were recorded and learn about some of the lesser known facts that shaped London's music history.

From Jimi Hendrix, Bowie, Eric Clapton and The Who and where The Beatles held their last concert. Retrace the footsteps of the iconic Landmarks that made rock music history in London. This is a tour for all those music lovers out there.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nicholas was a delight! I was looking for something different to do with the family and this Rock and Roll Tour was it. We walked all over and through interesting places. We stopped along the way and got all sorts of fun and interesting local music facts. Nicholas was such a wealth of knowledge we ended up asking him any and all questions we had about London. If I am ever back in London I would want Nicholas to be our personal guide.
