The original rock n roll tour of Camden. Take a walk on the wild side through Camden's music history with Alison, Camden local and girl about town. Starting outside the Electric Ballroom, I take you on a walking tour of the the famous and infamous sights of Camden's Rock n Roll history. As seen in The Sunday Times Travel section, Welt newspaper (Germany)...also ESPN Brasil, BBC 6Music and Shoreditch Radio, Soho Radio. And reccomended twice in TimeOut as one of the "40 great things to do in London this week'! Starting outside the Electric Ballroom, I take you on a walking tour of the the famous and infamous sights of Camden's Rock n Roll history. Some of the sights included in the tour are: *The pubs where Amy Winehouse hung out, played pool and performed. *The surprising place the punk band The Clash lived, rehearsed and worked. *The location of where Britpop started back in the 1990's. *The Offical Madness Pub. *The venue where The Door's gave their only U.K. performance. *An eyewitness story of the Great Fire of Camden! *Prince's love affair with Camden. From pub rock to punk rock, from ska to britpop and beyond.

Alison is great and gives loads of insight and personal anecdotes into the music scene in Camden. Never a lull in the conversation and came away feeling like we had made a lovely friend. We have already recommended the tour to our friends.

Our guide Alison seems like a nice enough person. That said, our group really did not think much of the tour. Other than a few tidbits about which bands played at The Electric Ballroom & The Roundhouse (info that can easily be dug up online),...More

Tämä kävelykierros kannattaa kokea! Alison vei meidät paikkoihin, joissa 70, 80, 90 ja 2000 lukujen huiput olivat aloitelleet uraansa. Erityisesti omakohtaiset kertomukset Amy Winehausista sykähdyttivät. Thank you very much Alison! We were really happy to visit Amy’s favourite pub and see Camden and hear all...More
