The #RollingStones In #London Walk: 38 Days to Go!

NEW! The Rolling Stones in London Walking Tour launches on Thursday 5th May 2016!



Curated & guided by the team that brought you the Rock'n'Roll London Walk, we'll be prowling in the blueswailing, drug-busting, establishment-baiting footsteps of the savage young Stones in their 60's pomp – from the studios where they created to the shebeens where they, er, socialised – this walk provides the ideal "bonus tracks" to Exhibitionism, the blockbusting Stones retrospective at the Saatchi Gallery.

Meet at Tottenham Court Road station Thursdays at 2:30p.m. STARTS THURSDAY 5TH MAY 2016.


Daily Constitutional Editor & Rock'n'Roll London guide Adam Scott-Goulding writes… As a countdown to the Rolling Stones in London Walk I've picked 45 moments – tracks, busts, incidents, quotes – from the greatest story in Rock'n'Roll. These are the moments that made the legend…



8/45.            Altamont (1969)


Not only a defining moment in the story of The Stones, but a defining moment in pop culture. Stones hire Hell's Angels to 'police' botched free gig at Californian racetrack. The Angels kill a fan, and the 60s are brought to an abrupt end.



The movie Gimme Shelter features the build-up to, and the aftermath of the Altamont gig. You can buy it here.


Street Fighting Men: The Rolling Stones in London Walking Tour begins on Thursday 5th May 2016 meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station.



A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
