Full description
Find out about the Rise and Fall of David Bowie on this walking tour. Learn about Bowie’s life from his childhood in Brixton to his rise to stardom in London’s Soho district and how fans from all over the world reacted to his sudden death. The tour starts in the South London town of Brixton, a vibrant area full of street art, quirky bars, and its own currency – which features David Bowie on the £10 note. See spots from Bowie’s early childhood, including the house where he was born and his first school. Take a short trip on the tube to Soho, where teenage David Bowie used to pack boxes for music publishers and dream of breaking into the music industry. As you wander through Soho, pass music venues where he performed, stop outside pubs that he used to frequent, and hear about some of Bowie’s most distinguished outfits whole walking along Carnaby Street, Soho’s fashion district. Snap a photo of yourself standing in the same spot as Bowie on the album cover "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" and look out for the telephone box from the back cover, too.
