Be part of a great London tradition and ride through the city in an open-top red bus.

Access All Areas

Rock & Roll Tour swings by the homes of music legends past and present

 

Experts in the more unusual charms of London, Access All Areas bring a welcome element of individualism and eccentricity to the sightseeing industry. Being one of the only companies to ship their passengers across London in luxury 16 seat mini-coaches, their tours are all the rage. Passengers can dive down hidden roads and discover a side of London they scarcely knew existed - certainly a side that the bigger, more cumbersome coaches and buses cannot reach. Follow in the footsteps of the Beatles on the fantastic Rock & Roll Tour, which celebrated four decades of rock history by rolling up to the homes of rock icons past and present - including Eric Clapton, Freddie Mercury, Bob Marley and the Gallagher brothers from Oasis.
