Which Zeppelin related places have you visited?


Recommended Posts

I've visited:-

Boleskine House (1978)

Peter Grant's mansion Horselunges Manor in Hellingley  (2015)

Jimmy's old mansion Plumpton Place (Featured in TSRTS) (2016)

Bron yr Aur cottage  (2017)

Tenuous connection:- Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island, which was once owned by Henry Hudson (Country Life founder), who also lived in Plumpton Place.

I also chatted to John Bonham briefly in a pub near Kidderminster in 1978.

At first I drew a blank and then started to remember seeing the Chicago Bulls play at the Chicago Stadium in the 1980's and watched a volley ball game at the LA Forum in the 1990's. I MosDef was picturing Zeppelin at one end of the stadium rocking out during their many shows at those locations. 

Most recently I visited Laugardalsholl Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Bron-Yr-Aur (twice)

Travelled past the sands at Aberdovey (this is I think where Plant does some of his fantasy sequences in TSRTS)

Site of King's Hall, Aberystwyth (Zeppelin played here in 1973) (now demolished). The band apparently played in the old bandstand on the seafront once (now replaced by a modern structure)

The Angel, Aberystwyth (apparently Zeppelin drank here, can't confirm rumour though)

Dolgoch Falls (where Page and Plant filmed and recorded some of No Quarter in 1994)

Earl's Court (now demolished)

Knebworth

I've visited the Royal Orleans hotel in the French Quarter in New Orleans.

That reminds me, I forgot to mention The Royal Orleans Hotel (unfortunately I only got there after it had been bought up by Omni), and the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans.

Never got to see the band live. What might have been in Fall 1980...

Thanks to old concert posters, I've stopped by 53 Berkeley Street, Boston, Mass, the site of the Boston Tea Party club. Anyone know on what level the music club was located? Upstairs? Ground floor? Basement? Thx for any feedback!

I was there in Feb last year, so post being bought by Omni as well. Still such an awesome place to visit with the song written about it.
