About The London Swinging 60s Bus Tour:

Get ready to be transported back to the sights and sounds of a bygone era.

On this 1 hour tour, you’ll pass by iconic venues and locations in the Kings Road, Chelsea - the popular playground of socialites, actors and rock stars and the location of London’s fashion houses that were characteristic of Swinging 60s London.

See the locations of the first psychedelic boutique ‘Granny Takes A Trip’ and Mary Quant’s ‘Bazaar’, where the mini skirt was invented, plus venues that helped launch the careers of the legendary musical acts of the 1960s.

You’ll pass by other notable locations of the era like the Royal Albert Hall, arguably the most famous music venue in the world, where The The Rolling Stones and Beatles played on the same bill in September 1963.

Each landmark is introduced 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 by Radio Caroline.

At the end you'll be returned to the starting point - Victoria & Albert Museum.
