      London Rock Tours Listing

Queen
Queen are a London band. Formed here, cut their teeth here, recorded their music here, played their seminal gigs here, lived, partied and in Freddie’s case, died here. Our memorable tour focuses on landmark sites and locations in the band’s history. Of all our tours, this one probably takes you through the prettiest and wealthiest of London’s neighbourhoods, and following their journey from college kids to ascending rock royalty’s throne.

Fittingly, this takes us past a lot of London’s real royal sites like Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace.
