London Beatles Walks and Tours With Richard Porter

Abbey Road and More!

London Beatles Walks and London Beatles online tours – guided by Richard Porter, author of the book ‘Guide to the Beatles London’; writer and presenter of ‘The Beatles’ London’ DVD; and a guide of 30 years experience. Richard was the president of the London Beatles Fan Club for 10 years and was a former winner of the ‘Beatles Brain of Britain’ competition. He organised the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Beatles crossing Abbey Road, and was on the committee that erected a blue plaque to commemorate the Beatles famous ‘Rooftop concert’ at 3 Savile Row.

“RICHARD Porter is the smartest man in Britain – at least when it comes to The Beatles. In reality, considering the Sixties pop scene was a hotbed of sex and psychedelic drugs, he probably knows more about The Beatles than the remaining members of the Fab Four can remember themselves.” Brian Crisp National Travel Editor, Escape

“When it comes to possessing a thorough knowledge of the movements of the Beatles, there are few who can surpass Richard Porter. Dubbed the “Beatles Brain of Britain,” his personal kinship with John, Paul, George and Ringo makes the London tours he conducts for London Walks some of the most popular in the city. After more than 20 years and guiding around 150,000 visitors, Richard’s lead is the one to heed. His personal knowledge adds an element of credibility that is unavailable elsewhere.”  USA Today
