Abbey Road - A Location with a Post Code Beginning with NW

London Hit List #17 Abbey Road

Are there any Beatles fans out there? I must admit I am definitely a Beatles fan… I once drove for 6 hours with a Beatles CD on repeat. Every Beatles fan out there should visit Abbey Road – the name of their last album recorded by them and the location of Abbey Road Studios where the Beatles recorded. I’m certain that as soon as ‘Abbey Road’ is mentioned, most Beatles lovers imagine that iconic photo of the Beatles at the zebra crossing on Abbey Road. Today loads of people flock to that same zebra crossing to try to recreate that image – while I was there, no fewer than 4 different groups of tourists were honked at by angry drivers for blocking the road. That zebra crossing has actually been given Grade II listed status by English Heritage. Outside of Abbey Road Studios there is a graffiti wall which, despite being regularly repainted, is full of Beatles fans’ messages and drawings.
