This Funzing Experience:

Discover the heart of rock 'n' roll London - the places, clubs and venues that were the setting for the music that defined a generation.

In the 1960's and 70's London was the world capital of music - The Beatles, The Stones, Bowie, The Clash, The Pistols, Jimi Hendrix and many, many others lived and performed here.

From the rooftop where the Beatles held their last concert, to the pub where the Stones were formed, to London's very own Tin Pan Alley, walk through Soho catching the places where the music was made and performed, visit the nightclubs where the bands relaxed, and experience first hand the streets that feature in the history of rock and roll.

See the sites where this happened, hear the stories of the artists and their followers, and discover what's changed over the intervening years.

On the way, you'll also take in a bit of the history of Soho - its place as a home for refugees, for nightlife, for music, drugs and crime.

For anyone interested in the music of the 60's and 70's, this is a fascinating glimpse into that world.
