Friday is Rock'n'Roll #London Day: A Blue Plaque For #FreddieMercury @EnglishHeritage

Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day! Join the Rock'n'Roll London walk this (and every Friday) afternoon at 2:00p.m meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station

Throughout 2016 here on The Daily Constitutional I've been posting one London plaque every day as part of my #plaque366 project. 

I'm a bit of a plaques junkie - to the extent that friends and family now make a point of telling me that they've spotted such-and-such a plaque when out-and-about in the capital, just incase I haven't seen it yet.

London Walkers, too, seem keen to chat about them. "Why doesn't "X" have a plaque?" Or "I don't think that "Y" deserves one!" And "Why does "Z" have a blue AND a green one?" 

It was with great interest, therefore, that I watched this absolutely enchanting film from English Heritage on the making of one of their most recent commemorations, a plaque for Freddie Mercury in Feltham…






We'll be discussing plaques along the route of my Rock'n'Roll London Tour this afternoon!




The Rock'n'Roll London Walk is ONLY London Walk with its own dedicated comic book! (Freddie Mercury makes a cameo in issue 2!) Written by Rock'n'Roll London guide (and Daily Constitutional editor Adam) it's available in both print & digital formats at the London Bookstore online: londonbookstore.myshopify.com and on The Rock'n'Roll London Walk on Fridays!





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.
