From the top-deck of a vintage London Routemaster bus, you can celebrate the careers of the some of the 20th century's most iconic musicians. The hop on hop off bus tour is an exciting journey back in time to the birth of modern rock from The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd to David Bowie! The tour even passes Twickenham Studios where The Beatles filmed ‘Help’ and ‘A Hard Day’s Night'.

Speaking just one week into the Rugby World Cup, the Swinging 60s Bus Tour creator Paul Endacott said, “The atmosphere in and around Twickenham and Richmond is fantastic and very colourful with the worldwide rugby fan representation. So far we’ve welcomed passengers on our bus from all-four corners of the globe and the bus itself has attracted a lot of attention when it’s been driving about and since we are only a short tube journey away it’s also perfect if you’re looking for things to do in London.”

The Swinging 60s Bus Tour has also been endorsed by some of the music greats who help give the tour its rich tapestry of content. Steve Hackett the ex-Genesis guitarist made a guest appearance on the tour during July as well as Atomic Rooster's Peter French has also been on the bus.
