Film Director Ken Russell recruited staff for this “shorts” here, and at the Troubador he became friends with Oliver reed. Led Zeppelin also “jammed” here after their gigs at Earls Court.

Day 2

Eel Pie Museum

Breakfast in your hotel

Drive to Twickenham, and arrive at this fantastic museum dedicated to the history of Eel Pie Island. The island became a haven for musicians during the 1950’s jazz scene. Groups will split into two here and half will join an introductory tour and visit to the museum while the other half will enjoy a slide presentation at the nearby Twickenham Club. Your visit will give insight into Eel Pie Island, a tiny private island in the Thames with an important role in music history.

Access to the Island itself is strictly for residents only.

You will take lunch at the Eel Pie Island Pub which takes its name from Eel Pie Island, so named due to the popularity of the pies served to day-tripping Londoners who would come down by paddle steamer to the Eel Pie Hotel. Enjoy a two-course lunch with tea and coffee before moving on.
