This is the typical "turistada" that I do not like the Londoners, but you have to do, emulating the Beatles going through there. To the side are those studies and the annotations of the fans of all the world. It's not something you see necessary to do in London, but it's fun. If you're nice you can not miss it.show original
The iconic album cover has caused a great many people to want to walk in the same footsteps...which is cool. The downside is that it is a very busy road and with so many people trying to walk the walk... read more »

Foto di Abbey Road nyaaa ^^
Really not much to see... Unless you're a hardcore fan of the Beatles. Btw, go on a weekend as there are less cars on the streets and you can take your photos without hurry.
An iconic stop to say the least. I’m not sure what advice I’d give to anyone trying to recreate the Beatle’s album cover… maybe get there very late, or very early, as there was a consistent crowd of folks trying to cross the street and get someone to photograph them. All the while British drivers are ready to get on with their day. Not being in the music trade, needless to say we didn’t see beyond the front door of the studios, but it was very cool to be there. There is rather standard tchotchke shop (yes, that really is how you spell it) attached to the studio with some reasonably clever items—branded drum sticks, plenty of album covers and memorabilia from the Beatles, Pink Floyd and many other items.
If you grew up listening Beatles you definitely feel something over there. You must see this place if you have any kind of connection with British music. Book the studio tour also!
A must visit place for any fan of The Beatles. Nice small gift shop is there too.
