Sample Itinerary

Just How Rock & Roll is London?
Very – all rock’s legends have lived, loved, recorded or performed in London at some point in their careers. From classic rock to metal, blues to punk, London has seen it all.

50 years of Beatles History
Explore the hidden backstreet where the Beatles lived together as young musicians, and gaze up at the the rooftop where the Beatles held their last concert.

Where Classic Rock Meets Classical Music
We’ll show you the elegant townhouse where some of Jimi Hendrix’s most legendary songs were composed, and where 300 years before the composer Handel also lived.

Studios to the Stars
Roam through Soho spotting the historic recording venues, where artists as eclectic as The Kinks and The Who, Elton John, and Tina Turner made iconic records.

1-Hour Optional Add-On £80: Visit to Abbey Road
For the real Beatles fans, book the 1-hour Abbey Road extension for £80! There, you will have a chance to graffiti a message to the band on the white gates of the studio and take a picture on the crosswalk where the Beatles once walked for the album Abbey Road.



Yes, all our tours are private and can be customized to our guests’ interests.

This itinerary doesn’t include Abbey Road, since it’s a long journey from Central London. Our guides will be happy to direct you there after your tour for an independent visit.

If you’d like to include a walk across the iconic crossing in a custom tour, please email REQUESTS@TOTALLYTAILORED.COM.

Our tours are designed for groups of 1-14 people. However, we can certainly cater to larger groups. For groups of over 14 guests, please email us at requests@totallytailored.com and we’ll help you craft your ideal trip.

The tour does not include an interior visit to Handel & Hendrix in London, since external guides are not allowed to lead tours inside. We do enjoy its beautiful townhouse facade.
If you’d like to include an interior tour of the Handel & Hendrix Museum in a custom tour, please email REQUESTS@TOTALLYTAILORED.COM.

Tips for your guide are never expected, but they do show you think your guide did a brilliant job! If you would like to tip your guide, please do so directly during the tour (10 – 15% is customary).
