    Great experience
    We went there on a sunny Sunday morning at the end of March. The picturesque St John's Wood tube station is nearby. We had to wait a few minutes to grab our pictures and we enjoyed being part of the feel of Abbey Road. The recording studio is nearby. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

    One of the the most famous roads in music history
    Quite surreal seeing the road and crossing first-hand after seeing it on that famous album cover all these years! We visited the road in the early afternoon and although there were a number of people on either side of the road, there was a lovely air of respect as people took their time taking photos, videos and posing on the crossing 'Beatles-style'. Drivers coming to the area seem to be very understanding of what takes place there on a daily basis and patiently wait whilst photos are taken but not all of them are so do expect some beeping of horns from one or two! We stood at the wall outside the Abbey Road Studios for a few minutes and took in the history and messages left on the white walls, which I can only assume are painted over every so often as a lot were 'modernly' written. We then discovered the Abbey Road shop just to the right of the studios which is well worth a visit and full of memorabilia for The Beatles and other bands who are known for recording at the Abbey Road Studios. Expect to pay £7 for an Abbey Road road sign magnet though!

    The experience of a lifetime!
    We had the opportunity to do a tour inside Abbey Road and it was a dream come true. It was amazing to be in the studio where The Beatles recording most of their best work and learn about the history and importance of the studio. If you get the chance, don't miss it. Absolutely amazing!!

    Crowding Abbey Road
    A very popular destination for Beatles fans. Great to do the walk across the zebra crossing and then watch the crowds attempt to get the perfect picture. Everyone was helping everyone else with pictures so a very friendly atmosphere. A very busy street so lots of traffic.

    A Road In London
    Abbey Road is made famous by the Beatles who recorded an album in the famous studio which happens to be located on Abbey Road. One wonders if they had recorded the album in a different location if then the album cover would have been different? This in turn would have returned Abbey Road to just another road in London. Instead it has become a pilgrimage for music fans from all over the world. Many of whom want to walk across the famous crossing. The 189 bus to Brent Cross Shopping Centre goes along Abbey Road and the St Johns Wood tube station is quite close by as well. Certainly worth checking out if you are a music fan and in the area.

    Memorable half hour
    Despite jubilee line being closed which made our trip out more challenging we loved it . Took a while to get our shot replicating the famous walk but fun doing it . Most were there for the same reason so was entertaining to see the various attempts much to the annoyance of the traffic .

I LOVED LONDON! We had a great time! It wasn't as cold as I remembered. It didn't rain! Lots of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. We met really nice people! The Pubs mostly do Beer & Guinness. It was hard for me to find a cocktail but I adjusted. lol

PROS
* Famous street for its association with the Beatles
* Pleasant and scenic

CONS
* Regular traffic with people always going on the famous zebra crossing

"I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
... for a second time when I came to this place again, to honor the Beatles, to relive the place and the era, and to cross that street there... again, and to be photographed doing it

WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
It's free

WOULD "I VISIT THIS PLACE" AGAIN?
I have gone out of my way twice on two different trips to do that; I would go back if I found myself in St. Johns Wood while going from somewhere to somewhere else

ADVICE
If you are a Beatles fan, then you know that you have to go here, but watch out fo the traffic on the street.

Reliving the Beatles Abbey Road album cover is quite an experience.

Visiting the nearby recording studio is also quite cool and nostalgic.

Fun experience, lots of nice people there to help take pictures for you. Look at the Beatles picture prior to getting there to reenact the moment

It is nothing special the Beatles are amazing but overall if you live near you are bombarded with people and cars It might be a cool road from its history but it is just a road

If Beatles are part of your youth, Abbey Road is a must-see. Beware, though, it is a working intersection which makes it difficult to recreate the historical walk that is on the album cover. Afterwards, visit the little shop in Abbey Road studios and read some of the permitted graffiti to realize how many other people have been affected by the Beatles.
