THE HISTORY OF ROCK & POP IN THE WEST END
Rock’n’Roll Marylebone & Fitzrovia
This edition of The History Of Rock & Pop is the Beatle-heavy extravaganza. No part of London is more associated with the Fab Four than Marylebone. They lived here, they wrote here, they filmed here. We’ll track their Cuban-heeled bootprints through the first explosion of unprecedented pop fame to their first faltering steps after the death of their manager Brian Epstein.
The Fabs are top of the bill, but the supporting cast for this walk isn’t too bad either. We’ve got the pre-fame Pink Floyd in their original London stomping ground. There’s Dylan’s first British gig way back in 1962. And then there’s the glorious old BBC in Portland Place – we’ll round-up the records they banned, the birth and death of Radio One and the scandals that have enveloped the corporation in recent years.

This was the third out of the series of four music tours we have done and it did not disappoint as usual.
We have loved every one of them and Adam is such a brilliant guide and all his knowledge is shared with humour and lots of fun. Highly recommend.

The Rock’n’Roll Marylebone & Fitzrovia London Walks Tour with Adam was great! Adam is such a knowledgeable guide. His storytelling delivery made the subject matter especially interesting. This was our second walks tour with Adam we’ll sign up again the next time we’re in London.
Robb Paterson –
What a fantastic tour. Adam really knows his subject matter. He is a great story teller with a delicious sense of humour. We had a great time.
This was an excellent tour with loads of information of which I was unaware. Adam was an excellent, engaging guide and communicated the information very well.
The tour was very enjoyable with loads of information of which I was unaware of before. Adam was also a very engaging guide and communicated very well with the group.

This is the second Rock ‘n’ Roll tour we’ve been on with Adam and once again it was hugely enjoyable. Adam’s passion for the subject is infectious and his commentary was peppered with anecdotes about the characters who featured in the tour. Adam’s snappy repartee and immense knowledge made this tour as entertaining as it was informative.
