Swinging 60s Tour

Music Heritage London has launched a new bus tour, suitable for groups, which is 60s music themed.

The tour is suitable for groups of between 20 and 70 people and involves a guided tour on an original 1960s London bus.

The bus will transport passengers back to the musically-iconic decade of 20th century Britain and the cultural revolution that spawned ‘swinging 60s’ London.

The tours include live commentary from experienced guides who point out iconic music venues and homes of music legends.

There are two tour options for groups to choose from. The first one is The Chelsea & Knightsbridge Tour which will travel along the Kings Road and Cheyne Walk and past the Royal Albert Hall.

Lunch at the Hard Rock Café, followed by a visit to The Vault, London’s rock ‘n’ roll museum, will also be included. The duration of this tour will be approximately four hours.

The second choice of tour is the Richmond’s Cradle of British Blues and Rock Tour. This experience takes groups to music locations such as Eel Pie Island and Twickenham Studios, where The Beatles filmed the music videos for HELP! and A Hard Day’s Night.

Groups will also see places relating to musicians like Rod Stewart. The tour will end at One Kew Road bar and restaurant, formally the Station Hotel, where The Rolling Stones secured their first residency and The Beatles first met in 1963.

This tour will take place over a duration of five hours.

For groups with 20 people or more, personalised itineraries can be created which can include many of London’s other music heritage sites and some of Music Heritage London’s monthly live music gigs by 60s tribute bands.
