Highlights
  • Abbey Road Studios - Have your photo taken on the world famous pedestrian crossing from the exact spot where the original photograph was taken for the Abbey Road cover shot. This means that your shot will look exactly the same as the album cover!! With the help of some incredible visual aids hear all the amazing stories surrounding this incredible studio and the part it played in the history of the worlds greatest rock band.
    Unfortunately there is no access to the studios however we will visit the Abbey Road Studios gift shop that sells a selection of fantastic official Beatles merchandise.

  • Chelsea - The Apartment where it all began. Visit the apartment where the Rolling Stones lived for 18 months ( 1962/63 ) at the start of their amazing career. With the aid of some incredible photographs I will show you that this apartment has hardly changed since Mick, Keith and Brian lived there nearly 60 years ago.
    Please note there is no access to the property,

  • Kensington High Street - Visit the house where Freddie Mercury spent the last 5 years of his life. Hear how he left his home and fortune to the only person he loved. Discover the twist in the tale that leaves so many unanswered questions.
    Please note there is no access to the property.

  • Holland Park - The Tower House Holland Park is the current home of Jimmy Page. Visit his amazing Gothic home and with the help of some incredible visual aids hear how Jimmy has painstakingly restored this Victorian Gothic masterpiece.
    Please note that Jimmy spends a lot of time at this property. I have met him on a few occasions outside his house and he trusts me not to disturb his privacy. There is no access to the property and we need to be respectful if he or his partner, family or friends should enter or exit the building.

  • Notting Hill - The Death Of Hendrix.
    Visit the apartment where on 18th September 1970 Jimi Hendrix drew his last breath.
    Was it an Accident ? Was it Suicide ? Or was he murdered ?
    You will hear all the evidence and then you can make your own mind up.
    Please note there is no access to the building

  • Piccadilly Circus - The Beatles last ever performance from the roof of The Apple Corporation HQ, 3 Saville Row, London W1.
    See where The Beatles played live for the very last time on the roof of their Apple Corporations HQ in the heart of London’s West End.
    With the help of some fantastic visual aids hear how John Lennon waved goodbye to the band “Thanks for coming and I hope we passed the audition”.
    This building is now an Abercrombie & Fitch store so there is access to the building but not the roof.

  • Regent Street - Where Ziggy played Guitar!
    See where David Bowie stood for the album cover shot of Ziggy Stardust. Since his death in 2016 this has become a shrine for Bowie fans from all over the world to pay their respects to the “Thin White Duke.” There is an extra special surprise at this landmark which will amaze all Bowie fans.

  • Wardour Street - Trident Studios.
    Stand outside the legendary Trident Studios and feel the atmosphere created by a building that has produced many of the world’s greatest recordings. It takes a considerable amount of time to recite all the amazing records that have been recorded here. From Major Tom to The Yellow Brick Road its a roll call you simply won’t believe!

Rock Tour where it all began! - Steve provided us with the rock tour of our dreams! We would’ve never been able to find any of these places on our own. He even had large photos so we could get the “now and then” experience. We will definitely go back for Part Two one day. Thank you, Steve!

Rock Tour 3/21/24 , Surreally Impressive! - We just returned from our London trip and had the pleasure of touring with Steve one week ago. The tour was surreal and well above and beyond our expectations! Steve is very special. He wants to show his clients an unforgettable experience and believe me when I say that he was beyond successful in doing so for my wife and myself. He is truly passionate about what he does and it really shows. He is enthusiastic, incredibly knowledgeable, funny, respectful and fun to be with. He customized our tour to meet our requests and focused on our favorite legendary artists and special locations. His appreciation of rock history and the detail in the stories that he tells are unsurpassed. I was riveted by his narration during the entire tour. Steve even extended our tour by another hour to accommodate all we wanted to experience, and at a very fair and modest fee. His navigation and driving are impressive, yet very safe. Abbey Road traffic stops for Steve! We hope to be back in two years and visit other historic sites that we can fit in. 5 hours just wasn’t enough to experience all that Steve can offer! Highly recommended!!!! 6 stars out of 5, friends!

Great trip (minus being sick with a stomach bug!!) - I went on this tour with my mum and as we both really enjoy the old rock legends we had a great time being toured around by Steve, Steve is very knowledgeable in this area, we learnt so much and seen so much, we did the shorter tour but would definetely come back and do a longer tour as there was just so much to see and learn. Steve really the made experience so much fun, i was a little sick in the stomach for the tour (unfortunately) but we had a good laugh about spewing on abbey road! Hey I'm sure the Beatles did it once or twice there right? Anyways thanks for being so great about everything and so checking in on me the next day! If you love rock and roll and wanna see and learn some awesome things then I highly recommend doing this tour with Steve!

A Wonderful Way to Find Out About Our Favorite Artists and London Too! - I can't say enough good things about this tour! Steve was so knowledgeable about all things London and not just music. He got in touch with us ahead of time to insure that the pick up details were all lined up and was even able to add a favorite band of my husband into the mix. Run don't walk to sign up for this tour!
