Hello from Croatia :)

Queen is my no1 band ever, and I'm a fan from little age.
I'll be going soon to London for 2 weeks, and really apart seeing Freddie's lodge or experimenting with red specials in Denmark street I can't think of something too see or do as a Queen fan. Any suggestions?

Cheers!

Don't miss WWRY! If you go once, you will want to do it again. Also take a look at this somewhat outdated info:

I hope you have a great time. Here's a few suggestions.

Research the Fairy Fellers Masterstroke Painting online and then go the museum in London to see it. Either very low cost or free to go see it.

There is a shop on Baker street called It's Only Rock & Roll and this is a good place to get a Queen t-shirt or other Queen items while in London (its only open during the day). Use the Baker street tube stop and it's just around the corner. There is also a Beatles store across the street.

Bookstores will have Queen books available in their music sections. Music stores will have sheet music.

Visit Hammersmith, Earls Court, Hyde Park and Imperial College for a trip down memory lane. Also look into some of the recording studios where Queen recorded and then walk to take a look at them as well.

And go see WWRY at the Dominion theater in Oxford Circus.


I'll be right behind you, right until the ends of the Earth

> Visit the Dominion Theatre, there's a Queen exhibition inside.
> Freddie's first flat:12 Stafford Terrace, Kensington W8
> Tate gallery (not Tate Modern) for the Fairy Feller's painting.

Depends how new you are to Queen at the end of the day. Queen related evening filler? Listen to some Queen music through a decent sound system at an adequately high volume and lose yourself.
