This Queen London tour is ideal for fans of Freddie Mercury and the iconic rock band Queen.

Queen performed their first gig in 1970. 50 years later, they are still popular and still one of the bestselling bands of all time. Want to know why?

Join our fabulous Queen tour and let our friendly guide take you around Queen’s London, sharing some of the band’s most daring, fabulous and poignant moments with you. Our Queen tour covers everything from the bands’ student days, where they earned a pittance, worked on market stalls, and rented shabby bedsits, all the way through to finding fame and fortune, performing in West End venues and rubbing shoulders with Royalty.

Your Queen London tour starts in the Royal Borough of Kensington.

The first 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.

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. One of the stops on the Queen Tour of London will be outside his beloved Garden Lodge.

During this Queen London tour 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.

Also 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!”

This tour is a Kind of Magic!
