The Hard Rock Vault - London

back to RockSiteMmuseums page

Hard Rock Cafe

 
The HRC's are to be found in many countries and many cities. They must have the biggest collection of rock memorabilia ever - guitars, clothes, drums, photographs, posters etc.
 
The great thing is the memorabilia is free. Just go buy yourself a beer or a meal, and browse their walls and watch the videos.

The Vault - Hard Rock Cafe, London

 
Located in the vault of a former bank, below the HRC store and adjacent to the Hard Rock Cafe in London.
 
The Vault is not large, just one room behind a twelve inch thick steel door, but it is the rock and roll equivalent of the candy store.
 
It is also touchy feely - which means if you want to touch Keith Richards' guitar or wear Bob Dylan's hat or try Jerry Lee's boots - you can. if you want to hold Jimi Hendrix's guitar that's worth millions you can and you can play it too (hopefully if you know how). The only thing that is missing is a bloody great Marshall amp to plug it into.
 
Our guide Jimmy looked like he had just left the Hell's Angels but he was a really nice guy and informative about the collection. A fan's fan.
 
But try steeling his prize exhibits and I think the steel door will shut on you - and if you make it to the stairs, he will be calling his former mates to come and sort you out !

reputedly played at the Isle of Wight.
This is a must-visit rock museum. It was revamped in 2008 so there may be different memorabilia. And it's free and open every day - courtesy of HRC.
