I've been a huge Beatle & Paul McCartney fan since I was 11yrs old, many years ago! I was hooked even before I saw them on Ed Sullivan show! There was & still is for me, a magical feeling about The Beatles. They had such...More

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

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

I can’t sing huge praises for Abbey Road. It was great to see a piece of history. But in reality there were a bunch of people just jumping around on the “infamous” cross walk, holding traffic up and looking ridiculous. But if you need content...More

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
