There are a lot of Beatles walks in London but these have to inevitably include the iconic Abbey Road crossing, which is in dull St John’s Wood, with a long walk to anywhere else of interest. We think a walk through the far more interesting Soho area, which was the centre of the rock scene in the 60’s makes for a far more interesting tour. Here you’ll see numerous locations associated with the Beatles both as a group and individually, Bowie, the Stones, Hendrix, Rod, Bolan, the Kinks, Tommy Steele, Adam Faith, Cliff Richard, Georgie Fame and many more, with loads of photographs of them back then too. You’ll also see where Paul met Linda and John met Yoko. There’s also a great guitar street with a wall still to this day full of adverts for budding rock musicians to answer, plus places where clubs, coffee bars and studios had stars of the future hanging out, performing and getting discovered.
