What will I see on the Rock 'n' Roll tour?

Visit the Scotch of St James club in Mason’s Yard on our London rock tour, where the legendary Jimi Hendrix played his first and last UK gig. With such a rich musical heritage, there is no wonder that artists are still flocking to London in search of fame and fortune.

On the 30th January 1969, The Beatles climbed to the top of their Apple Corps headquarters and played their last ever concert. Let our guide fill you in on the events leading up to that historic moment!

You’ll also get to see Trident Studios, the most prolific place to record in the late sixties. Trident Studios is hailed as a sacred place by music fans across the globe and has helped to launch world-famous artists such as David Bowie, Queen, Elton John and Black Sabbath.
