The #RollingStones In #London Walk: 39 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…



7/45.            Paint it Black (Single 1966)


Released the same summer as Sunny Afternoon, Daydream and Good Day Sunshine, this reveals the narcotic nastiness at the heart of this band. They are the real deal. Compare also Brian's recorded sitar debut to George Harrison's (Norwegian Wood). No competition.




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.
