Your Queen Tour of London starts with a bang, or rather CLAP, CLAP, STAMP.  What better place to meet your driver than outside the Dominion Theatre where Queen’s rock musical ‘We Will Rock You’ ran in the West End for 12 years? You’ll hear what the critics thought of the show, why it was a success, and what happened to Freddie Mercury’s statue…

As you are driven around the West End, you’ll be entertained with anecdotes linking many of London’s theatres with Queen. Let’s face it, someone as flamboyant as Freddie Mercury just couldn’t resist performing and filming in theatrical settings.

During the tour you’ll pass locations that helped catapult Queen to success in the early days, including venues where they performed and the radio station that once played Bohemian Rhapsody over and over again: “Wasn’t that a great song? Let’s hear it again!”

Of course, we can’t forget the studios where Queen’s songs were recorded. As you pass through Soho you’ll find out what was so appealing about a blink-and-you-miss-it studio and what was recorded there.

‘God Save [the] Queen!’ As you make your way out of the West End, your tour embraces a regal tone and you may be surprised to discover Queen’s links with the Queen!

The second half of the tour takes you back to where it all started. From the early days of ‘Smile’ to Roger Taylor, Freddie Mercury, and John Deacon’s auditions for Queen. You can quickly stretch your legs and take a selfie under the plaque that commemorates Queen’s first gig.

As you drive around the Royal Borough, it’s strange to think that anyone could be a struggling artist, living in a dingy bedsit in this elite neighbourhood. But before Queen found fame and fortune, they enjoyed a Bohemian life of market stalls, grubby flats, and cosy local pubs. But it was home. Kensington never stopped being home for Freddie Mercury, and the last stop on the Queen Tour of London will be outside his beloved Garden Lodge.
