Our musical companions for this virtual tour along the dignified red-brick streets, stucco squares and riverside views is an illustrious one. Knights of the Realm Sir Mick Jagger and Sir Arthur Sullivan will rub shoulders with Eastender made-good Lionel Bart and Islington-reared Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten.
Bonafide musical legends from the aforementioned Mozart to Judy Garland to The Beatles will make cameo appearances.
