New Virtual Tour! The Beatles in West London!

We all know that John, Paul, George and Ringo were born and grew up in Liverpool, but it was only when The Beatles came to London in 1962 did their popularity explode across the world.

Join us LIVE, on this 90 minute guided tour as we take you back to the many locations in West London where they worked, performed and played. From their eventful meeting with The Rolling Stones in April 1963 and film locations around Twickenham Studios, to where some of their last photographs were taken together in 1969.

As you travel along the streets of London, you’ll get LIVE commentary from our co-host, ‘Beatles Brain of Britain’, Richard Porter, who will show you photos and videos relating to the locations we visit and answer any questions you have.
