The London scene did not have a lot of direct contact with San Francisco so it was more an interpretation of the movement. Allen Ginsberg was someone who traveled to London in 1965 and organized a poetry meeting "Poets of the World/Poets of Our Time" at the Royal Albert Hall and psychedlia begins to bloom in London.

Then Michael Hollinshead opened the World Psychedelic Center in London in Fall 1965. In 1966 the Indica bookshop opens up (where John Lennon gets his copy of The Psychedelic Experience, parts of which end up in Tomorrow Never Knows). Also in 1966 was the London Free School that had people having dialogues about the culture, and then in Dec 1966 the International Times were published as an answer to SF's The Oracle. There was also a UFO Club which was where people gathered to drop acid and trip.
