Tottenham Court Road Tube, exit 1 | Map

Guided by Rex or Richard P or Adam

Short version: Keep on walking, keep on rocking!

Long version: All roads once led to Rome.... Now they lead to London. In terms of rock 'n' roll this is an inarguable fact. Big bucks may well be made in Hollywood – but rock 'n' roll reputations are made here in The Big Smoke. Our cast list's a Who's Who of the music: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd (look around, choose your ground...all you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be), Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Blur and Oasis. Each act has a London tale to tell, often a tale so decadent that Caligula himself would blush!*  London Calling. Lend an ear. *With thanks to Morrissey

ROCK 'N' ROLL LONDON TOUR – THE PRACTICALS

The Rock 'n' Roll London tour takes place every Friday afternoon at 2 pm. And it takes place as a "special" at 10.45 am on Saturdays: April 21 and April 28. And it runs as The Rock 'n' Roll Pub Walk at 7 pm every* Wednesday night. Meeting point is Tottenham Court Road Tube (exit 1). Guided by Adam or Richard P.  *Except on Wednesday nights in Jan. and Feb.

Food & drink after the walk… A few weeks ago, that great East End institution Poppies Fish & Chip Shop made the move west and opened at the site of the 2i's, giving the place an excellent 50's style makeover. Full story on The Daily Constitutional

N.B. the Rock 'n' Roll London Walk ends in Carnaby Street, very near Oxford CircusTube.

"Unmissable: Rock 'n' Roll really rocks. Adam is an amazing guide and incredible story-teller and since this walk is all about landmarks and stories you cannot hope to get a better guide. My husband and I are addicted to London Walks and this is really one of the best ones that we have been on."  rh24 (Ithaca, New York). From her Trip Advisor review.
