Abbey Road Crossing

KidRated’s Abbey Road Crossing Top Tips:

  • Look left and right before stepping out for your Beatles-style photo!
  • There are TWO Abbey Roads. You want St John’s Wood – NW8 9AY
  • Locals don’t always stop for tourists. Kids be careful!

The Abbey Road Crossing has become legendary for Beatles fans worldwide after the Fab Four were featured walking across it on the cover of their eleventh and final recorded album. Situated outside Abbey Road studios, where the number-one ‘Abbey Road’ album was recorded, it remains popular with tourists who wish to take their own snaps on the crossing, or see the graffitied messages about the band inscribed on the studio’s concrete walls.

 

Not good with a camera? With the installation of the Crossing Cam, which films those stepping out, you can let others do the hard work for you. If you log onto the Abbey Road Crossing website, it is possible to search for your crossing shot, share it, and even submit it to the Abbey Road Wall of Fame!


Booking Advice:

  • Crossing Abbey Road is totally FREE
  • No need to book, just bring 3 friends and wait your turn
  • If you’re a massive Beatles fan why not make the pilgrimage to Liverpool for the Beatles Story exhibition?

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • 5-10 minute walk from St John’s Wood tube station (Jubilee Line). Walk straight down Grove End Road, opposite the station.
  • Don’t let the kids muck around in the road as this is a main road crossing so drivers can get impatient and don’t all stop.
  • Rehearse your walk together on the pavement and when the traffic is clear, set up your photo.
  • You can also get the 139 or 189 bus along Abbey Road – grab the upper deck front seats for more photo opportunities.
  • You can find loads more information by Laura Porter at aboutlondonlaura.com
