Hi I’m Nick the Bastard, former Goth rock superstar from “Christian Death” and I can take YOU on a life changing tour of the Rock’n’Roll haunts of Notting Hill, showing you the sights, the sounds, the smells, of London’s funkiest area. THRILL to the sight of Sarm West Recording studio, “home” of Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley and Band Aid and the brightly coloured houses of Lancaster Road. GASP at the sight of Portobello Hotel, where Jimi Hendrix died and Oasis partied. SLURP in Finch’s public house where Lemmy dealt drugs....sometimes to me. In an hour long tour from Great Western Road to Elgin Crescent Nick the Bastard will take you on a mind blowing tour of the rock and roll sights and sounds, past and present, of Notting Hill. As what Nick the Bastard doesn’t know about Notting Hill isn’t worth knowing.

About the Tour

Throw yourself into the seedy underbelly of Bohemian Portobello, see the home of Mick Jagger in “Performance”. Portobello is the Bohemian centre of London, home to Hendrix, Hawkwind, the Clash, T-Rex , some of whom were personal friends of mine. Home if the world famous Portobello Market with its great stalls selling clothes, exotic food and bric-a-bric. From Notting Hill Gate to the Westway this is my “manor”, you’d be an idiot NOT to take my tour- go on, you know it makes sense... Places visited: 1. Sarm West Recording Studio 2. Portobello Hotel 3. The Westway 4. The famous pubs of Portobello 5. The multi coloured houses of Lancaster Road 6. The Mangrove All Saints Road 7. Rough Trade Records 8. Fiction Records 9. Portobello Music Shop and People Sound Reggae shop 10. The shops and stalls of Portobello Market
