the walking tour of David Bowie’s Beckenham.
David Bowie moved to Beckenham in 1969. He arrived broke, broken-hearted and disillusioned with the struggle of getting recognition & success as a performer. But he left Beckenham 4½ years later as a fully-fledged international star.
Some of the landmarks have since changed, but through extensive research and interviews with people who were there at the time, our knowledgeable local guides also incorporate images of how those places once looked, transporting you back to when the younger Bowie was taking his first steps towards fame.
