Full description
London is a city of bizarre and curious places and stories. It is the birthplace of the most popular music band in the 70s and 80s – Queen. You will walk down the streets that still remember Freddie Mercury’s footsteps. Start your tour by seeing one of the major concert venues where Queen played several concerts, including the legendary Xmas concerts in 1975 and 1979. Follow your guide to the most popular recording studio, where ‘Who Wants to Live Forever’ and ‘Barcelona’ were recorded. You will also see another popular studio which was used for rehearsals. Shortly after this, you will be taken to the place where Freddie lived with Mary Austin, to whom he dedicated one of his most famous songs, ‘Love of My Life’. Reaching Freddie’s former house you will continue your journey towards the flat which all of the band members shared in the early 70s. Stop by the iconic pub where Freddie met Mary, Brian, and Roger before you walk to the house where Freddie died and which is occupied by Mary Austin and her family. Afterwards you will explore the area which was Freddie's first flat. You will walk through the place which was once a Kensington Market where Freddie was quite often seen selling shoes and art before seeing where Queen recorded all the songs for their first 2 albums. You will visit the Royal Opera House where Freddie used to go, and where he met Montserrat Caballe. Finish your tour by seeing the place of Freddie’s very last performance – in the ‘Time’ musical on 14th April 1988.

    Happy to have walked in Queen's footsteps

    We had a great time, and are happy to have seen all these places where Freddie and the rest of the band have evolved, played and lived! Thank you to Grant for this beautiful ride and these little anecdotes he told us! My spouse and Queen fan really loved it! That said we would have appreciated a little more (such as a partnership with Richard Young gallery where we made purchases, or visiting a place where not everyone has access ...)

    We booked this tour because I'm a big fan of Queen. The area where the tour took place was very nice. We visited the streets where the band members lived and then we went to the center to the recording studios and radio stations.

    It was an awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable. He was very professional yet friendly. We learned a lot of London’s history as well as Queen. Would definitely recommend it.
