What Can I Expect

On an Elton John Tour of pop star's native London you’ll discover the sensitive man behind the glasses, the wild stage performances and outrageous outfits. From the house where he was born, to the local hotel where Elton’s first paid gigs were, these tours will show you everything about the Rocketman’s home town!

Reginald Dwight, more famously known as Sir Elton John, was born in a very modest house in Pinner, a suburb of London. This is where your tour begins and ends, as you explore the places that were influential in the global superstar’s childhood.

Initially raised by his maternal grand-parents, Elton had a fractious relationship with his parents. They were a musical family though and it soon became apparent that little Elton had a precocious talent for the piano. He even won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music.

You’ll see that his first job as a musician was a pianist at a Northwood hotel, just round the corner from the family home. It was here that Reggie (as he was then known) started composing and performing his own songs. After meeting Bernie Taupin, the two joined forces for songwriting and that long-term collaboration gave us seminal hits such as ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, ‘Step Into Christmas’ and ‘Tiny Dancer’.

Throughout the 70s, Elton’s music grew in popularity. But even with four albums in the US charts, Elton and Bernie still caught the train back to the Frome Court where his mother and step-father lived - and you’ll see where that is on your Elton John-themed mini coach tour.

Huge chart success around the world beckoned (and indeed Elton is one of the best-selling artists of all time), but Elton never let go of his links to the Pinner and Harrow areas of North London. So of course, no Elton John tour of London would be complete without passing by his beloved Watford FC football ground at Vicarage Road!
