One thought on “A Rock ‘n Roll travel guide – London

  1. Did you get to Mr. Ducktail, the rock n roll demon barber in Carnaby Street? He does awesome pompadour cuts. Also totally agree with GBK for great burgers.
    We also spent a long weekend in London, did both the above & also visited What Katie Did, Portabello Market for some vintage shopping.
