Short read: It rocks!

Short podcast listen: Adam riffing brilliantly on how a music walking tour is not just a dance to the music of our time – it’s also a dance to who we are. 

Slightly longer read: “It’s like having your own personal rock star for a tour guide”

Lockdown read: Wednesday night Rock’n’Roll London Pub Walk is BACK!  Click here    Other London Walks tours will soon follow in virtual form

Long read: 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 be made in Hollywood but rock ‘n’ roll reputations are made here in The Big Smoke. We’re headin’ to their haunts and hangouts. Where they riffed and let rip, these men of wealth and taste. Please allow me to introduce The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Blur, Oasis… It’s a Who’s Who of the music. Each act has a London tale to tell… Very often a tale so decadent – so down and dirty – that Caligula would have blushed!*  Keep on walking, keep on rocking! Guided by Adam or Rex.       *with thanks to Morrissey

Not suitable for children (for a short video explaining why, click HERE. And another HERE)

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, Rock 'n' Roll London it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Rock 'n' Roll London walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at [email protected] and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

  1. Kevin Worboys

    Did the Tour on 26 April, found iy very disappointing

    Thanks for your feedback, Kevin. So sorry you were disappointed with Richard P.’s Beatles Walk. And not just sorry. Surprised. Richard’s years of experience, his good contacts, his books, his Beatles Brain of Britain awards, etc. etc., he gets a ton of very favourable reviews.

    I’d just add that we – London Walks generally – receive hundreds of ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reviews every year. Naturally we take negative feedback very seriously indeed.

    If you would like to expand upon your feedback about what it was you that disappointed you – i.e., tell us what you feel can be improved – by all means email us directly at [email protected]

    It is well-known that London Walks provides the best guided tours in London – which is probably why you booked with us in the first place. Our walkers’ feedback is very important to us.

    Thanks for ‘getting in touch.’

    If you love music you must do this tour. Simply Brilliant! A walking tour with Adam was as near to walking with a good friend who delivers you knowledge in a way you enjoy and remember. Cheers Adam, hope to see you again. Johnny

  3. Beate Riese

    My husband and I were on the London Rock n Roll walking tour with Adam last Friday. It was a great experience , really interesting, so entertaining and vivid. We loved the tour and spoke about the tour to our family a friends in Germany. When we are back in London we will join another walking tour with the unique guide Adam!!

  4. Mary Chadwick

    I have done lots of London Walks & they have all been good & thoroughly worthwhile. Adam’s Rock & Roll tour is definitely up there with the best of them. He is very knowledgeable & has a great delivery & enthusiasm for his subject. A very enjoyable 2 hours!

  5. Nancy Kaye

    We took the tour with Adam on Sept. 29, 2023. FANTASTIC! Adam is so knowledgeable, an entertainingly funny story teller and full of enthusiasm for what he does. When we go back to London we will definitely do another tour! I have already recommended Adam to friends (by sending them this link) who will be traveling to London next year from the US. Rock on Adam and thank you so much! So incredibly fun and I’m glad to be able to watch this video to remember you by!

  6. Teri

    Adam was great! Filled with facts and a really good sense of humor! He also projected his voice well, so he was easily heard. The two hour tour just flew by! I highly recommend. I also look forward to doing other ones with London walks.

  7. Ross Crawford

    Although I’m a born and bred Londoner (now living in Australia) Adam showed me so much historical rock ‘n’ roll places and stories that I was so pleased a friend had recommended his tour to me (beening himself a London tour guide for over 20 years) because it’s not only The material its Adams sheer enthusiasm and stage presence.
    It’s only rock ‘n’ roll but I like it like it!

  8. Bion & Mary

    We did the Rock ‘n’ Roll London Walk with Adam on 29 Sep ‘23. We had hoped that there would be lots of stories and backstories, and Adam regaled us with those for two hours! He shared lots of good info and insights about people and places. I could listen to Adam all day. He is fun, engaging and a great tour guide. Definitely recommend this walk with Adam!

  9. Astrid de Ronde

    I did the Rock ‘n Roll Tour with Adam on Friday 6th October and what can I say? It was informative, entertaining and just a lot of fun! Highly recommended!!

  10. Nancy Deininger

    My husband and I went on Adam’s Rock n Roll London walk on Friday, September 29,2023 and we had a wonderful time! We’ve been on many London Walks and even though we had done a rock n roll walk before there is always something new to learn! The walk was great and Adam was a fantastic walk host!
