As the world mourns the death of legendary musician David Bowie, honour his legacy by visiting some of his most memorable hangouts and haunts.

The Starman died on Monday at 69, following an 18-month battle with cancer that was kept secret.

Citymaps has compiled a map marking out locations around London that were of great importance to Bowie.

To quote the man himself, "I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring."

First, walk down Carnaby St, where Bowie used to pick up second-hand clothing with Marc Bolan of T.Rex

From there, head to 39 Manchester St, where Bowie lived in 1967 with his manager Ken Pitt. After a day of writing songs and reading books, he'd often venture out to the nearby Pollock's Toy Museum

"He'd come back with all sorts of things," Pitt told the Independent, "then he'd pin them on the wall."

The store has since moved even closer to the flat, but still has the same eccentric vibe that enticed Bowie in the late 60s.

At nearby Manchester Square, is Wallace Collection - the home to one of Europe's finest collections of artworks, furniture, armour and porcelain - another spot Bowie was very fond of.

A very important location for anyone wishing to pay tribute is Trident Studios - here in St Anne's Court he recorded Space Oddity and a couple of years later, his great breakthrough Ziggy Stardust album.

The studio is small and anonymous looking, and anyone can hire it for voiceover work.

The list also includes some of Bowie's favourite spots on Denmark St, where the singer would hang out for hours when he was still a teenager, going by the name Davy Jones.

And for anyone looking to drown their sorrows over this great loss to modern music, look no further than The Ship, an Edwardian pub where he was a regular.

My favorite pub in London so far. Lots of rock, skulls, and old men inside. S'cute.

In his hometown of Brixton in south London, a mural of David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust painted by Australian street artist Jimmy C has become an impromptu shrine for fans to pay their respects to the late star.

Be sure to stop by and leave a token of appreciation.
