How can I get to Abbey Road?
Abbey Road was made a popular destination for London tours when the Beatles used a photograph of themselves walking across the road and away from their recording studio in 1969 for the cover of their album Abbey Road
Many London visitors try to recreate the famous picture of John, Paul, George and Ringo by walking across the same spot and snapping a photo. In recent years Abbey Road has become a reasonably busy street making standing still or walking slowly while your photo is being taken, not the safest idea.
Abbey Road is included in many London walking tours. If you're a huge Beatles fan you may want to take a Beatles specific walking tour of the area. There are several London tours available that will take you to various Beatles landmarks throughout the city in additional to Abbey Road for a small fee.
If you're traveling to Abbey Road on your own you can easily get there on the subway. Abbey road is located a mere 3 blocks from the St. John's Wood stop.
