Britpop: A nostalgia-fueled audio walking tour in Camden Town
80 to 240 minutes
Step back in time to the mid-1990s and enjoy a walk around Britpop era Camden Town when Blur and Oasis battled it out in the charts and in the pubs and clubs as well. Tales of riotous behaviour, fuelled by a never-ending flow of drugs and alcohol. Camden, the place it was born as a backlash against Grunge and the American dominance of the UK charts at the start of the decade.
By the mid-90s, everyone connected with the scene was based here, working and playing here. If you love the music this is the place to Be Here Now!. For many have long moved away but the spirit of the scene lives on in the stories of the time.
Britpop landmarks include the original site of the Blowup Club, The Electric Ballroom, The Good Mixer pub, Dingwalls, Creation Records, Primrose Hill and The Dublin Castle pub.
