Description

This guided tour of Chelsea’s rock ‘n’ roll history offers gritty insights worthy of any music lover’s attention.

Explore the sites of influential boutiques like ‘Granny Takes a Trip’ and Mary Quant’s ‘Bazaar’ that inspired the music scene of the swinging ’60s, as well as the Kings Road hangouts where the Sex Pistols were formed and the hotel used by the Beatles as their London base.

The tour starts at the National Army Museum (nearest tube Sloane Square) and ends near the junction of Edith Grove and Kings Road (nearest tube Fulham Broadway).
