Calling all Beatles Fans!!  You don`t want to miss out on this fun tour celebrating England`s most famous band (no not One Direction)!  Share with your children the original boy band`s famous history!  Stop by John Lennon`s London Home, walk across the famous Abbey Road and see some of the studios that they recorded at!

The Access All Area's mission statement is to "identify, preserve, protect and promote the UK rock Heritage" and they do this by providing an extensive variety of music related rock tours of London. The rock tours take you to the places where famous musicians have lived, died, made films, performed and partied.

They cover a wide range of rock music genres and artists whose careers have spanned from the 50s to present day. No matter what your taste in music they have a tour to suit you and you'll see sites which you would otherwise not know about.

The tour guides all have a passion for music and most have either been musicians or seen some of the great artists featured live in concert and even performed with them. You could say that the guides themselves are rockers. On the tours you'll hear gossip, anecdotes and trivia about the famous musicians of London. Our guide Mike was so funny and charming-he was a passionate music fan and full of great stories!
