Morning Tour

London was a large feature in the life of the World’s greatest rock band
and has continued to feature in their subsequent solo careers as well!

From their humble beginnings rehearsing in a basement on Soho’s Gerard Street to
their 2007 ‘Commemoration Day’ reunion at the 02 in front of a lucky 20,000 fans,
the capital of rock witnessed their climb to rock’s pinnacle.
London was also ‘home’ to band members Page and Jones in their pre-and post Zep careers.

The many sites and locations we can find throughout the city and its environs provide
perfect icons around which we can hang our own wonderful commemoration day,
recounting the band’s story and putting them into their rock history context!

We explore the pre-Zep world of the Yardbirds, learn about legendary studios –
like Joe Meek’s Holloway Road, and the IBC studios, where Page and Jones as young
session men cut their musical teeth.

We see Olympic Studios where Led Zeppelin 1 was made, and Island – where part of
‘Stairway to Heaven’ was recorded.

On our itinerary are gigs sites ranging from the early Klooks Kleek club, Chalk Farm
Roundhouse and the Marquee to the Royal Albert Hall and Earls Court Stadium.

You’ll visit rehearsal locations in parts of the city tourists never see. We’ll see some of the apartments
and houses where band member’s lived and where Jimmy opened his witchcraft bookshop.

You’ll see where their own ‘Swan Song’ label and management offices where and the 2is Coffee Bar
where their legendary manager Peter Grant first worked as a bouncer.

While we’re on our Zep trail you’ll also be seeing locations associated with many other legendary heavy rock bands
.
