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”

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)

  1. Jenny

    Absolutely brilliant! Adam is a very entertaining guide. Lots of interesting information of music through the decades.

  2. Michele

    Richard gave a fabulous tour with lots of info and personal anecdotes that made it extra special. I’ll come back and bring my family next time we’re in London.

  3. Rebecca Bruce

    What a fantastic, informative evening. Totally recommend for music lovers. As a Londoner I was thrilled to be taken to places and hear stories about the significance of London in Rock and Roll history! Adam is an engaging tour guide who’s friendly demeanour compliments his vast historical knowledge.

  4. Joanne Rasdell

    I did this walk with Andy and loved it! So much great information and so many sights in a relatively small area.

    Rock’n’roll London Sunday 26th September 2021 – Guided by Adam Scott.

    Getting 14 friends and family to TCR Tube Station for 11am was less of a challenge than I thought. We met Adam and he herded these “cats” for the next 2 hours.

    It started well, mention of Alex Harvey at the Dominion, got better with Rock around the Clock by Bill Hayley (‘Our tune’ – we celebrated 40 years of marriage earlier in September) and continued to be the gift that just kept on giving.

    Adam was patient with the cats and informative in bucketloads keeping the interest of our musical virgins and sad old music heads like me. I think its fair to say Adam kept us all enthralled and I can confirm we were all very sad when the tour came to a halt. I could have continued for another 2 hours.

    Many thanks Adam, you made our Ruby Wedding weekend of celebration perfect.

    Guys – if you have a group of music fans in London book a tour with Adam. You will not regret it.
