Very easy to get to. Kind of let down once you get there. My husband was ecstatic since he is a big fan. Feels awkward to get a picture. I guess I was expecting something a little more. Guess it all depends on your music...More

Not sure the motorists appreciated having to stop while so many people wanted to recreate the Abbey Road album cover but we had great fun watching the antics. Had a go ourselves as it would be rude not to!

We're all Beatles fans in our family, although I did think this was going to be a bit ordinary. On a whim after visiting Madame Tussaud's, we caught the tube to St John's Wood, then it was just a short walk to Abbey Road. Arriving...More

Make some history and go and see the famous crossing thanks to the Beetles. I recommend going early in the morning that way you can get photos with working about cars and tour busses. Have some fun and pose just like the beetles. A 15...More

A short ride up the Jubilee Line from Westminster area to St John’s Wood. Then a 3-5 minute walk to the famous intersection. Always lots of folks wanting to put themselves in a photo on the crosswalk, ala John, Paul, George and Ringo. Watch out...More
