We were there 12/26, and it was too hard to get the cars to stop long enough for all the tourists to try walking across the road like the Beatles did for their album. Too many people trying to cross and they messed up our...More

This is a Must Do! We headed over to the crossing on Xmas day to find a small crowd in line in the middle of the street. You must be careful, as local traffic do not care about safety of tourists. We had a great...More

I have no interest in the Beatles to be honest, I visited as i was in the area and had seen it on so many tourist vlogs before. I’m glad I went, it was a lot of fun watching mostly random people trying to co-ordinate...More

Having been a teenager in the 60’s, the Abbey Road album cover is very familiar to me. Therefore visiting the same crosswalk was of interest. But, the real attraction is all of the people taking photos. I’m glad I don’t live in the area. At...More

Ok, it's not a big deal if you're not a Beatles fan...but to those of us who had the vinyl record featuring John, Paul, George, and Ringo crossing Abbey Road on the cover - it's great. It is just a road, so you have to...More

We walked to the Abbey road crossing in London , made famous by the Beatles to see many other tourists there. Motorists and buses are so patient while tourists walk past taking photos and videos. Really it’s only a few lines on a road, but...More

I am still getting goosebumps recollecting my trip here, and my visit to the Abby Road Studios, and shopping for "Beatlemania" souvenirs. Such history! So British! All my youthful memories came flooding back when I was there!

You simply must visit this iconic location when in London, take the obligatory photos along with everyone else there - a trip to London is not complete without it!

Worth doing if you are in the area. Luckily we had a quiet time of day - mid-morning on a week day in November. Easy to find off the main Maida Vale Road. Can imagine that it will become busy and possibly chaotic at times....More

I had to go see it, but I wasn't even going to try crossing for the picture. People were nearly run over while we watched. Go see it quickly (about 5 mins from the tube), then go on with your day.

There are so many different hop on and hop off tours. Each should offer a map. There is a rock and roll tour via bus that offers it. I do not believe that most of the general hop on, hop off tours gets close enough to abbey... More

The nearest parking station is Kingsmill Terrace, St. Johns Wood. It is about a 7 minute walk from there to Abbey Road.
