The Beatles were at the heart of the "Swinging Sixties", when London exploded with fashion, music and rapidly changing social values. A Beatles walking tour takes you to back to that era as you discover the London of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
This was a time when Carnaby Street was rapidly transformed from a side alley into London's most fashionable hang-out. On a good day, you might have seen one of The Beatles themselves climbing out of a custom-made Mini to be fitted with a new set of flares at a Carnaby Street shop. Nearby, there's the secluded Soho studio where The Beatles recorded the epic 'Hey Jude'. Your experienced guide will show you where The Beatles met The Rolling Stones and take you to the offices of Apple, the company The Beatles formed to look after their affairs. It was on the Apple rooftop that The Beatles performed live for the very last time, in a surprise appearance in January, 1969, parts of which feature on the 'Let It Be' album. No fan of The Beatles should miss this opportunity to discover how London was as important to The Beatles as their Liverpool roots. For anyone interested in popular culture and London's emergence as a fashion capital, this walking tour is a must.
