Queen related Places in London

Have you ever visited London and thought of all the places in Queen history where you might be able to pass by or visit.
Questions like, Where did Queen band members Live in London? Where did Queen Play in London? Where did Queen record in London? Where in London was Bohemian Rhapsody filmed?

This is a list of Queen related places in London to visit. I have researched recording studios Queen used, venues for Queen concerts in London, places Queen used for video shoots, places Queen band members lived in London and much more.  Filming Locations used in the recent Bohemian Rhapsody biopic/movie have also been added to the London Queen Map. This is an on-going process so more will be added in time.

There may be more – if there is please drop me a line!
