From Tudor Kings to the rebellious Stewarts, this tour is a must for anyone interested in music heritage or cultural history. The 1-hour tour begins with a breathtaking view over the River Thames from the top of Richmond Hill. In just 60 minutes, you'll be transported back nearly 600 years, passing music venues, rock-star's homes and hideaways, to the remains of King Henry VII's palace. With stories of music royalty, we take you to the Golden Age of the English Monarchy, the birth of ‘Britannia’ and the death of Queen Elizabeth I. After a short stroll along the riverbank, where The Beatles were last photographed together, the tour ends under Richmond Bridge - the oldest bridge spanning the River Thames in Greater London.
Paul established Music Heritage London (MHL) in 2015 to provide music enthusiasts with an integrated, authentic, and immersive experience by packaging and promoting London's vast music history and by doing so, help perpetuate its legacy for future generations to enjoy and be inspired by! His Swinging 60s London tours celebrate the era-defining significance of a small enclave of West London, expressed through some of the greatest music of all time! Tours visit music venues that helped to springboard the careers of seminal artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elton John, The Who, The Yardbirds, David Bowie, Genesis, Rod Stewart, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Manfred Mann, and many, many more. Joint ventures were secured with some of West London's top music-related venues including; the Hard Rock Cafe and Vault Rock Museum, Royal Albert Hall, The Gore Hotel, Troubadour, Handel Hendrix House, The Ealing Club, Chiswick House, and Gardens, Half Moon in Putney, Eel Pie Island Museum and The Crawdaddy Club and his 'Swinging 60s London' tours continue to engage passengers of all ages, from all over the world. As the media spotlight remains focused on 60s culture, fashion, and music and the legends who created and performed it, Paul continues to expand links with online platforms such as Heygo and the travel trade, offering private and bespoke tours on his 6-seater psychedelic minivan, plus group tours on 72 seaters 1960s Routemaster buses, to satisfy the growing needs and expectations of the music tourist.

I have done all Paul’s tours at least twice and adore his way of speaking with enthusiasm and great knowledge. He obviously loves Richmond and Sixties music. Join one of his tours to see what you have been missing

This was a fascinating tour. I had fun, and learnt a great deal about both modern and 16th-century history. Paul is a great guide, with a warm voice and manner.

Enjoyable tour! Well organized with interesting little tidbits of stories and information along the way. If there is any way to cut down on the wind noise with a better mike muffler, that would be appreciated! Many thanks and cheers from Winnipeg, Canada!
