'Right on! Excellent day. The best I've had in many visits to London'. Roberto (Mexican journalist).

It hardly seems credible but the Rolling Stones have been one the world’s greatest rock’n’roll bands for over 50 years.  And, as every true fan knows, the Jagger and Richards partnership began on the railway platform at their home town of Dartford.  On this tour we discover the earliest roots of the band members and follow them through the early years.

You’ll see the birthplace and  family homes of both Jagger and Richards; you’ll see the primary school they attended together and also their secondary schools (including the Mick Jagger Centre); you’ll see where they formed with their first band and you’ll visit locations associated with early band member,  Dick Taylor. The undoubted highlight of your morning will be replaying that famed meeting on Dartford station platform when the two young men recognised a kindred soul in each other and set out on their 50 year adventure!

Whether you’re a long-time follower, or newly come to the band and want to know and understand their history and tradition, this is the tour for you!
