Hop on our 1960s Routemaster London bus at 3pm from the rear of One Kew Road, Richmond (opposite the train station) where the Beatles first met the Rolling Stones who had secured their first residency at this venue. To a backdrop of live commentary and music of the era, you'll see the locations where The Beatles had their last photographs taken together and the studios they used to film 'HELP!' and 'A Hard Day's Night'. Hear about Harold Pendleton, the British music business executive and former club owner, who established the Marquee Club in London and the National Jazz Festival, (the precursor of the Reading Rock Festival) located at the Richmond Athletics Ground. Then, weather permitting, a short walk to see Eel Pie Island, stomping ground to many of the seminal bands of the 60s and 70s. And the view from the top of Richmond Hill, protected by an Act of Parliament in 1902, is not to be missed! It's a view that Ronnie Wood and Mick Jagger enjoyed from their mansions on the hill.
