THE HISTORY OF ROCK & POP IN THE WEST END

On this episode of the Rock’n’Roll London Walk we have a rock star guide.

We will see…

The most expensive square on the English Monopoly board – Mayfair £400 – where Jimi Hendrix made his home.

The most celebrated theatre in British showbiz – The London Palladium – where the Rolling Stones made a stand against the old guard.

The most luxurious department store – Liberty’s – where David Bowie conceived his most famous look.

The most stylish street in the world of gentlemen’s style – Savile Row – where The Beatles played their final gig.

The most famous junction in the UK – Piccadilly Circus – where The Beatles launched themselves on international stardom.

With such a cast of characters, it’s all bound to end up in court – so we’ll visit the spot where Jagger, Johnny Rotten and two of The Clash were put on trial in the 60s and 70s.

  1. Jo T

    The Musical Mayfair Rock n Roll tour with Adam is two fabulous hours packed with stories, humour and of course, music! The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Gustav Holst (yes, really!) and many more musical stars all feature within this entertaining walk. Adam has so much musical knowledge which he is delighted to share with his walkers, so don’t miss out on this walk – you’re in for a treat!

  2. Hugh T

    Amazing! What a walk. Felt like I was there with the Beatles. Thank you so much. We want to do the rest of the tours!

  3. Patti G

    Wonderful tour with Adam. He had so many stories to share, and he clearly loves his subject. Adam even brought the music! Most enjoyable.

  4. Robert H

    This was truly a Must Do tour. Adam brings a wealth of knowledge that is presented in a fun and casual style. I only wish I could been here in the 60’s. Thanks Adam for a very enjoyable walk.
