Discover on the David Bowie Tour how you can take the boy out of Brixton, but you can’t take Brixton out of the boy. So naturally, our walking tour starts in David Bowie’s hometown of Brixton and visits the house where he was born. Brixton is so proud of its Bowie link and as you walk around you’ll see little nods to this local lad, the highlight of which is the David Bowie memorial just opposite the underground station. 

Walking around, you’ll get a flavour of the Brixton that Bowie would have known and loved with its rich heritage and diverse cultures. You’ll visit the sites where David Bowie fans gathered together to mourn his passing in 2016, see venues where Bowie performed, and find out where some of the many Bowie-themed parties and celebrations were held. 

Although Bowie was born in Brixton, he found fame and fortune elsewhere, so you’ll take a short tube journey (not included in the price of the tour) to continue your David Bowie walking tour in London’s buzzing Soho district. 

Soho was the heart of the music industry in the 1970s, it was here that the eager David Bowie hoped to make a name for himself and started working, socialising, and allegedly living in Denmark Street, a.k.a. Tin Pan Alley.  

As you wind through the streets of Soho you’ll hear anecdotes and trivia about his songs, how he was portrayed in the media, his rise to fame, and his unique ability to reinvent himself as different personas. 

During the David Bowie tour, you’ll be able to stand in the very spot that featured on the album cover ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars’ and see one of the few plaques dedicated to a fictional character, guess which one?

As you walk through Carnaby Street, you’ll take a moment to talk about “Fashion! Turn to the left. Fashion! Turn to the right.” What better place to reminisce on Bowie’s iconic song, and of course some of his most striking fashion choices?

The tour stops outside several of Soho’s legendary music venues and as well as the studio where David Bowie recorded two of his albums. At the end of the tour, your guide will walk you to Tottenham Court Road underground station, although you may like to retrace your steps and enjoy a drink in David Bowie’s favourite pub.
