Tour Description:   
 
    
    

David Bowie’s career spans five decades with London providing both the starting point of his amazing
career and many watershed moments along the way. 

Marc Bolan’s was tragically cut short but he shared the Glam years with his former friend and
sometime rival, with his band T Rex.

What better way to discover their joint history and that of the exciting and colourful 1970s than on our Glam Rock tour! You’ll discover their roots and influences; see the sites and locations that marked each star’s progress through the decade such as studios, gigs, management offices etc; you’ll learn about their sometimes controversial life and loves; enjoy seeing parts of London that you’d not normally see and, en route, ‘meet’ contemporary names from the ‘Glam rock’ era.


On this unbeatable Rock Tour you’ll see:

  • Their individual homes and management offices.
  • The Marc Bolan ‘shrine’ at his car crash site.
  • The birthplace and ‘death’ site of Ziggy Stardust, including the location of the famed album cover photograph and commemorative plaque.
  • Soho clubs including where the young Bowie had his first disastrous performance, and nearby
    the famed coffee bar where the young Bolan worked.

  • See locations associated with Bowie/Bolan’s producer - Tony Visconti’s studios and the MainMan HQ
  • See apartments and flats throughout London lived in by both Bowie and Bolan at various stages of
