Tour by Alison

An American expat in London for over 15 years. My favorite bits of London are north of the river. I'm a DJ, fashion designer, blogger, filmmaker, cat sitter, tour guide...a bit of a Renaissance woman. So obviously, I love music, fashion, movies, TV, cats, history, culture and pop culture.


  • Get to know Camden’s rock ’n’ roll history with a clued-up local
  • Visit famous and infamous live music venues
  • Hear about Prince’s ongoing love affair with Camden


Starting outside the Electric Ballroom, I’ll take you on a tour of the famous and infamous sights of Camden’s rock ‘n’ roll history.

Some of the places we’ll visit include:
• The pubs where Amy Winehouse hung out, played pool and performed
• The surprising location where The Clash lived, rehearsed and worked
• The place where Britpop started back in the 1990s
• Madness’ favourite pub
• The venue where The Doors gave their only UK performance

From pub rock to punk rock, from ska to Britpop and beyond!

As seen in Time Out, the Sunday Times Travel Magazine and Die Welt (German newspaper). Also featured on ESPN Brasil, BBC Radio 6 Music, Shoreditch Radio, Soho Radio and the Music Heritage UK podcast.

Amazingly fun and interesting experience
It's great as you will visit the venues that saw many important British bands emerge. You will hit pubs where many of these artists hung out, hear interesting stories and have a sip of great beers too of course! Our tour guide Alice told us such great stories and she was super fun! If ur into britpop I totally recommend this tour, you will have a blast
Why are you reading this? Go already!
Alison is a great tour guide with tons of information and first hand stories. I know the tour only scratched the surface. She is fun and passionate about music and Camden, which makes for a great tour. It was worth every penny (pence)! In addition to visiting some great historical music spots, you get to walk around Camden, which is hands down my favourite area of London! So stop reading already and book it!
Great way to spend an evening
We had a wonderful Friday evening being shown around Camden by Alison. She knows a lot of the old and new stories about the area and it wasn't all about bands from the 1990s. We saw a lot of the venues, walked through some interesting areas, learned about the pubs. She knew the history from the 1920s to the present and the happenings in the 1960s through 1980s as well. She really brought it to life and it was a great way to see the area.
Great fun!
Alison was a fantastic tour guide - very knowledgeable about the area and the music scene. Great pub recommendations!!! so much fun. I would definitely recommend this tour.
