Full description
On this 4-hour tour, hear all about the birth of the greatest rock band of all time: The Rolling Stones. From their early hang-outs on King's Road in Chelsea and the flat they shared, this tour takes you down to the band’s spiritual home in Richmond via venues and locations that all Rolling Stones fans will want to experience.

Pass by the Chelsea Drugstore, immortalized in the hit “You Can't Always Get What You Want” and visit the celebrated Half Moon pub in Putney, where the Stones often played. Then onto Olympic Studios where The Stones recorded six albums between 1966 and 1972 before heading out to The Bull's Head pub, another one of West London's famous music venues.
