London in the Swinging Sixties

London was known during the 1960s as the Swinging City. Throughout one of the most iconic decades of the last century, London was a metropolis of culture that dress the eye of the world through the fashion, music and art that inspired an entire generation.

This tour we not only aim to take you around some of the most well known locations of the 60’s era, but also take you off the beaten track to places you may never heard of yet played a huge part in the history of this turbulent time. See where the Beatles played their first and last gig, where fashion was reinvented into the colourful extravaganza we know today, the hidden criminal elements, and the cities seedy underbelly.
