THE ROLLING STONES & BEATLES IN WEST LONDON bus tour
It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll But I Like It
This 3 hour tour starts at the Hard Rock Cafe in London’s Piccadilly and finishes at One Kew Road, Richmond – formally the Station Hotel and home to the original Crawdaddy Club where The Rolling Stones found fame and where The Beatles first met them.
Via the Chelsea locations where they once lived, we pass by legendary music venues like Olympic Studios, Eel Pie Island and Twickenham Studios where The Beatles filmed ‘HELP!’ and ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. You’ll also see where seminal musicians like Rod Stewart and Elton John were discovered and hear revealing stories from The Wick, on top of Richmond Hill, once home to Ronnie Wood…and friends!
2 HOUR TOUR OPTION
Join the tour at 3pm from the rear of One Kew Road, Richmond (opposite the train station) and hear about Harold Pendleton, the British music business executive and former club owner, who established the Marquee Club in London and the National Jazz Festival, (the precursor of the Reading Rock Festival) located at the Richmond Athletics Ground. Then, weather permitting, a short walk to see Eel Pie Island, stomping ground to many of the seminal bands of the 60s and 70s. The view from the top of Richmond Hill, protected by an Act of Parliament in 1902, is a sight to be seen!
