The club was resident at several Windsor locations over its lifespan and in later days, included clubs in Guildford, Hounslow, Reading and High Wycombe, but its most famous venue was the Windsor river-side mansion at Clewer Mead.
Gigs were also organized at the Drill Hall at Maidenhead in 1963, and hosted bands like Yardbirds, Pretty Things and the Stones. The original venue for the Tick was an upstairs room behind the Star and Garter pub. It then moved to another pub called the Thames Hotel, not in Peascod Street, Windsor but down on the Thames river front, before moving to Clewer Manor. Sunday nights saw the Disco-Tick evenings with Fridays and Saturdays devoted to live bands. Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band were regulars as were Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames, The Alan Price Set, and others including Herbie Goins, John Mayall, and Zoot Money. The "Tick" also helped introduce Motown to the UK with The Supremes, Temptations, and Stevie Wonder all appearing. There was also an in-house "Boutick" where you could buy shirts and other clothes of the day.
