Full description
Start your adventure at the recently launched Hard Rock Hotel London, the first in the UK which pays tribute to its impressive roll-call of former residents. You'll meet your expert Rock Guide in the lobby for a brief walk through iconic items such as Freddie Mercury’s Kirkwood piano, Jimi Hendrix’s contracts, tapes, and flamboyant cape, Eric Clapton’s jacket, one of Ozzy Osbourne’s stage outfits, and incredible letters written by Buddy Holly during his stay at the hotel. With access to the quiet back streets of Mayfair not accessible to big tour buses, you'll see an amazing property where both Jimi Hendrix and George Frideric Handel both resided, as well as the home where Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees composed and lived. You'll then step out onto the street with your expert guide with for a walking tour through the 60s and 70s. Amidst the fine tailoring of Savile Row, transport yourself back five decades and imagine you are joining the on-lookers at the Beatles' final concert. Then, discover a doorway that saw the birth of one of David Bowie’s most famous alter-egos, before hearing how some of the colorful managers of the day did his negotiating. As a VIP you will be in for a treat as you pull up to London’s only rock n’ roll museum: the Vault. Tucked away in an old Coutts Bank, the Vault was once used to protect the Queen’s coffers. Gaze on in wonder as one of Hard Rock’s expert "rock masters" takes you down into the basement, beyond the high-security door, and into a music lover’s paradise. Cruising along the Strand, look out for one of London’s most celebrated hotels, whose side street was the scene for one of the most imitated promo films of the swinging sixties. Discover a former theater location where Beatles impresario, Brian Epstein, used to run rock shows on a Sunday, and learn who surprised all four Beatles 2 days after the Sgt. Peppers' release. Your experience finishes with a legendary 2-course lunch at the very first Hard Rock Cafe in the world, which has boasted a Mayfair address since 1971. The exceptional cuisine is only matched by the wondrous surroundings. Next to the bar you will see the guitar that started Hard Rock’s legendary reputation for exceptional pieces of memorabilia: Eric Clapton’s red Fender Lead II guitar.
