Description

Join us in the front seat of our magic bus as we cruise the King's Road in Chelsea, the beating heart of Swinging London.  In this online experience, you will visit music and fashion locations that inspired a generation to a backdrop of live commentary and the greatest hits of all time.

You will hear about the post-war austerity and the cultural revolution that soon followed, which gave rise to consumerism, the explosion of skiffle, the British blues movement and the birth of rock 'n' roll. You will also see where Mary Quant's mini skirt was created and the location of London's first psychedelic fashion boutique where Brian Jones, George Harrison and Jimi Hendrix regularly visited. 

Pass by the homes of Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger in Chelsea on your way to the infamous Troubadour that has changed a little since the 60s. This tour will end outside one of the world's most iconic music venue - the Royal Albert Hall.

Paul Endacott

Paul has been a Richmond resident for over 40 years. A recent tour review summed him up perfectly: “I felt like I knew Paul Endacott because he was not just a tour guide, he was a talisman or an apostle of those amazing times in London that I wanted to know and see more of. He does not read from a pre-written script, rather he speaks from his past, his gut and most of all from his heart. I could feel, hear and see the love, the memories, and the music oozing from his rock ‘n’ roll heart and soul.”

From USD 43 / Screen
