Join this fabulous Queen bus tour and let a friendly driver guide you around Queen’s London. It covers everything from the bands' early days, all the way through to finding fame and fortune, performing in West End venues and rubbing shoulders with Royalty. This tour is a Kind of Magic!
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. 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. Of course, you won't miss the studios where Queen’s songs were recorded.
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 this elite neighbourhood. But before Queen found fame and fortune, they enjoyed a Bohemian life of market stalls, grubby flats, and cozy local pubs. 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.
