Its streets are packed with lyrical heritage, from the former homes of rock and roll legends, to the venues they played in and the pubs they partied in. Whether you take a Bowie walking tour, visit the Beatles’ famous Abbey Road studios, or relax in one of the many hotels and pubs with rock and roll heritage, London will be singing to your tune.
