Full description
The tour begins with a visit to London’s only Rock n’ Roll museum, the Vault. Gaze in wonder as one of the Hard Rock Cafe’s Rock Masters takes you down to the basement, through the high security door, and into a music lover’s paradise. Pass by the former flat of Harry Nilsson next, which was the sad setting for the exit of two music’s most beloved personalities, Cass Elliot and Keith Moon. 

Continue the tour to Garden Lodge, the former home of Freddie Mercury, then enjoy a School of Rock style trivia quiz and put your music knowledge to the test. Before stopping at the next location, learn about the fateful 27 Club, to which icons including Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain are members. Arrive at the world-famous Abbey Road crossing in the leafy suburb of St. John’s Wood and snap an unforgettable photo for your holiday album.

The tour ends at the Hard Rock Cafe in Piccadilly Circus, the perfect place to conclude this biopic adventure through the icons of rock. Inside, be amazed by the walls adorned with authentic, one-of-a-kind memorabilia from decades of music history. Your rock guide highlights some of the most exceptional pieces before leaving you to explore the shop at your own leisure or enjoy a tasty meal.
