Ziggy Stardust album cover


Take a photo posing as Ziggy Stardust in exactly the same spot where David Bowie did the same!

Just off Regent’s Street is the location where David Bowie shot one of the most iconic album covers of all time.
It looks pretty different these days but you can even see the famous telephone box.
David Bowie used to hang around Soho a lot in the 60s and early 70s, especially Wardour Street, where the Marquee Club used to be and Denmark Street a.k.a. Tin Pan Alley which was very popular with musicians.
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is one of the most influential albums ever recorded and definitely stands the test of time.
The album documents the rise to fame of the alien hybrid Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie’s alter-ego whom he famously killed off at a farewell concert at Hammersmith Odeon.
