On Sunday (November 18), the Swinging 60s London Bus Tour hit the streets of the city that rocked a generation.
Raising money for Global's Make Some Noise, the generosity of Gold listeners is extraordinary and we sold out the bus tour twice over which meant double the number of people could come with us back to the swinging 60s!
The tour was kindly operated for us by Music Heritage London and more on their incredible bus tours, concerts and other events can be found here.
Joined by rock legends Mick Avory from the Kinks and Top Topham from the Yardbirds, we set off on board an original 1965 Route Master from the Victoria and Albert Museum and headed into the beating heart of 60s London.
We took in the sights and delights of the Kings Road, visited the flat on Edith Grove where the Rolling Stones lived and partied with The Beatles.
We also stopped at iconic fashion sites such as Vivianne Westwood’s place, and the flat Sir Ringo Starr currently owns and stays in when he is in town for the Chelsea Flower Show.
Halfway through the tour, we headed down into the legendary Troubadour Club. It was here that Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and many other icons played and chilled out.
We then headed back to the V&A, passing Brian Epstein’s flat and the Cromwellian where many '60s heroes used to meet.
