About The London Swinging 60s Bus Tour:
Many of rock's most famous faces got their start in the now legendary venues of Richmond. Richmond's Crawdaddy Club (now One Kew Road) and Eel Pie Island saw formative gigs by the likes of The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, David Bowie and many more. Another creative heritage spot with bags of history is Twickenham Studios, where The Beatles filmed ‘Help' and ‘A Hard Day's Night'.
It's the careers of these seminal artists and the cultures surrounding them that are explored on the new London Swinging 60s Bus Tour. Keep an eye out for celebrity guests who'll be on-hand to sign autographs and tell you first hand stories of their musical experiences! Past special guests have included: Genesis' Steve Hackett, Downliners Sect's Don Craine and star of stage and screen, Mike Berry.
Each experience is commentated by a professional music historian guide, and throughout the tour you'll also be treated to a hand-picked selection of 60s hits played through a state-of-the-art onboard sound system. In addition to the original Crawdaddy Club, Eel Pie Island and Twickenham Studios, the Swinging 60s Experience will cover famous venues in Barnes and Putney, rock spots along King’s Road, and the homes of various music legends.
