Full description
This tour covers Rock landmarks in bohemian Soho and the north London neighbourhoods of Camden Town, Hampstead Village and Heath, Highgate, Muswell Hill, Archway and Islington. An undoubted highlight is 'Ally Pally' (Alexandra Palace) from where you'll get an unbeatable view of London's skyline.

On today's tour you'll see Macca's Golden Disc covered office and the flat where he wrote 'Yesterday', Ringo's Hampstead house, and the only flat shared by all Fab Four. And, naturally, you'll also get to walk across the famed 'Abbey Road' crossing.

Then, there's Madness' Camden Town and Chalk Farm, the famed 'Tin Pan Alley', the Kinks' Muswell Hill 'shrine', and Rod Stewart's family home and school. See where the Floyd's cut 'The Wall'. You'll pass Boy George, George Michael and Sting's homes. See where Jimmy Page cut his first disc, where Joe Meek killed his landlady and where The Clash cut 'London Calling'. Gig sites and clubs include the legendary UFO, Klooks Kleek, the Rainbow, Marquee, 100 Club, Roxy, Ronnie Scotts, Roundhouse and Hope and Anchor.

Other sites covered on this fantabulous tour relate to the Police, Rod Stewart, Bonzo Dog Doh Dah Band, Graham Bond, Elton John, The Clash, Alexis Corner, Ginger Baker, Fairport Convention, Bob Dylan, Eurythmics, and more modern icons such as Amy Winehouse and Coldplay.
