London may have imported rock music from across the pond, but no other city in the world has been as pivotal in its ongoing history. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Kinks, Sex Pistols, The Who, Queen, Oasis and Led Zeppelin – they all called the British capital home at one point or other and often recorded their best albums there. And from the Stones in Hyde Park to Dylan at the Royal Albert Hall, many major artists who have played career-defining performances here.

Of course top of many fans’ wish lists will be the famous studios on Abbey Road where the Beatles recorded their album of the same name. You can recreate the cover on the pedestrian crossing and visit numerous other sites associated with Liverpool’s finest as you follow a magical history tour of London. But it’s not all Beatlemania. The drug busts, the bust ups, the grime and the glory of the world’s best rock artists are written all over London’s streets, from the King’s Road to Soho, from Muswell Hill to Notting Hill. Visiting the venues, hotels and studios which have themselves become household names will bring rock’n’roll’s back story alive as never before.

After a day on the streets, keep the beat alive with an evening at popular long-running musical We Will Rock You, which gets crowds worked up to a host of Queen hits. Or head for the original Hard Rock Café, where rock memorabilia is dished up with family-friendly fare.

Of course you can’t keep rock music in glass cases forever, so head to the North London district of Camden Town. It’s an area which has spawned a bewildering array of subcultures and was once home to The Clash, Bob Marley and Madness, but its gritty venues continue to produce major indie bands. You might wind up seeing the stars of tomorrow before anyone else.
