Overview

By public demand, our scheduled shuttle bus service launched in July 2015 has now been replaced by 1 hour and 3 hour tours starting and finishing at One Kew Road bar and restaurant (immediately opposite Richmond Railway Station) where, in 1963, The Beatles came to watch an emerging band called The Rolling Stones. This new service offers passengers a much improved route with more 60s music heritage venues and general cultural sites to see and hear about adding to a truly unique and memorable experience! TOUR 1 The 60s Experience 1 HOUR On an authentic 1960s Routemaster London bus we will transport you back in time via Richmond, Twickenham and Teddington playing music by the legendary acts that found international fame on our local stages... like The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Who, The Kinks, Cream, Elton John, Rod Stewart, The Beatles and many, many more. Some commentary will be given at relevant points on the journey. TOUR 2 The 60s Tour 3 HOURS A more comprehensive and extensive tour with our experienced and knowledgable tour guide offering photo opportunities at venues and sites along the route between Richmond, Twickenham and Teddington. LIVE MUSIC EVENTS And for a total Swinging 60s experience, look out for our live music events after your tour at One Kew Road.
