  • A lifelong fan of The Beatles, I was in London by myself & could not pass on the opportunity to visit the origin of so many iconic records. By the Fab Four, of course, but Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ret...  more »
  • What more I was surprised of the cross is that a single reference from the crossing of the beatles, there is even if it is a point very busy tourist English does not give as much importance. a pity that there are no guided tours to the study. If it serves them something they have to get off at st subway station. John´s wood, (coming out there is a little store that sells things of the beatles). metro station are about 4 or 5 blocks until the crossroad and hence, very close this paul mc cartney House if any fan interested in seeing it. If you are planning to visit wembley Stadium also may do so on the same day, since there are only a few stations with the metro

  • Abbey Road is a London street. In a residential neighborhood of a high standard. Include the legendary recording studios. Where the Beatles recorded their last album in their history. Precisely Abbey Road. Let it be released later but was recorded before Abbey Road. The cover photo captures the Beatles on pedestrian crossing outside the studios. And every fan wants to try again to cross the strips. Perhaps SADI as Paul. Not far there is one of Paul. Today little used but is its historic home. Where he composed many famous songs like "Let it be" and a large part of Sgt Peppers. A 25-minute walk away is the famous souvenir of the Beatles. Next to the Sherlock Holmes Museum.

  • Abbey road is a London history monument, although it is just there for you to see it and perhaps go into the souvenir stop they have next door to the studios but there is no activity in for anyone to enjoy... It is the site of pilgrimage of thousands of music lovers every month. It has in front the famous abbey road album cover crossing where you can take a picture after being patient for no cars to pass by.
  • We really enjoyed working at the studio. Especially the staff at the front door was so nice. He told us many stories and was a great help.
  • Quaint neighborhood and loved the gift shop (which doesn't require any entrance fee or anything). Just anticipate all the tourists trying to take a picture crossing the street ;)
  • Legendary sound studio. Amazing experience recording music there. Great professionals!
  • Look for Mark on the building along with millions of others additionally enjoy the gift shop. But that conversations with memory lane
