Start of the Magical Mystery Tour

Published: 2009-10-13


The Beatles - Allsop Place


The Magical Mystery Tour bus set off from Allsop Place, North West London, on Monday 11 September 1967, with Paul McCartney, film crew, and other passengers. First stop was at Virginia Water to collect John, George and Ringo, and with a growing convoy of press, fans and photographers behind them, the Mystery Tour filming was under way.

Heading West from London, driver Alf Manders took the A30 towards Basingstoke and onto Teignmouth in Devon for their first night stay.On Tuesday 12th they continued west, and intended tovisit the annual Widecombe Fair, in Devon, but that plan was scrapped when the bus got stuck on a narrow bridge while taking a short cut to avoid traffic jams. Chaos ensued when the bus had to reverse quite a way back to turn around.

They eventually arrived at Plymouth for a lunch stop, and did some interviews forthe ensuing press, before joining the A38 and A30 viaLiskeard, Bodmin, and on to their destination Newquay.Over the next three days the group filmed in Porth, Watergate Bay, Holywell Bay, Tregurrian, and around their base at The Atlantic Hotel.

The bus departed for a return to London on the morning of Friday 15th September, calling at Roman Road, Taunton, for fish and chips !! Filming continued on the following week in Kent. fake rolex uk | replica watches uk rolex copies cheap cartier replica watches on sale uk
