Abbey Road Tours

star-4.5
176 Reviews
Abbey Road
Pop pilgrims flock to this black-and-white-striped crosswalk in north London for the ultimate photo opportunity. Day in, day out, Beatles fans can be seen trying to recreate the iconic 1969 Abbey Road album cover at this pedestrian crossing—their movements broadcast to the world via live webcam. Nearby lies Abbey Road Studios, where the Beatles recorded many of their hits. 

The Basics
Having been at the center of the 1960s British Invasion and the Brit-pop explosion of the 1990s, London is a city steeped in 20th-century rock and pop history. Visitors can tap into Beatlemania during guided tours by bus and black cab. These tours make the rounds of London locales associated with the group, from Abbey Road to the site of their famous 1969 rooftop concert.

Alternatively, opt for a broader half- or full-day music history tour that goes to neighborhoods including Soho, Camden, and Notting Hill, and covers sites connected not only with the Beatles but also with other British musical legends, such as the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, The Clash, Queen, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd. Most music-themed tours focus on England’s capital, but it is possible to do a music-themed day tour of London and nearby Cambridgeshire. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The recording studios are closed to the public, so visitors can only view the heritage-listed building from outside.
  • Graffiti messages paying homage to the Fab Four can be seen scrawled on the wall outside the studio. 
  • The popular crossing can be very busy, so be careful when stepping out.

How to Get There
Abbey Road is in Saint John’s Wood, north London. To get there, take the tube to Saint John’s Wood (Jubilee line) or Maida Vale (Bakerloo line). Note that the Abbey Road DLR station in West Ham, east London, refers to a different Abbey Road and is nowhere near the crosswalk. 

When to Get There
If you want to get a photograph at the crossing, avoid congested weekday rush hours (around 7:30–9:30am, and 4:30–7pm). For those determined to get the perfect shot, try coming at 7am on a Sunday when traffic is quiet. 

Tips for Getting the Perfect Photograph at Abbey Road
The Abbey Road zebra crossing is located in a heavily trafficked part of London, which can make getting the perfect shot difficult. Cars won’t hesitate to honk the horn at tourists taking too long to stage their shot. To speed up the process, make sure you have all your equipment set up and ready to go.

London of the 1960s was electric, exhilarating and era-defining: trust me, I was there! I'd love to share with you the iconic places of that incredible decade, where the Fab Four and other stars lived, hung-out and recorded. This is a complete A-Z of the four mop tops meteoric rise to fame from their arrival in London in 1962 to their last gig as a band on the roof top of their Saville Row headquarters in 1969. During the London black taxi tour we’ll visit the Abbey Road recording studios and of course that famous zebra crossing (crosswalk) which has become a grade II listed site. No two Capital Cabbie tours are ever the same – let me know your interests and I’ll build them into the tour. My goal is to provide you and your group with an unforgettable sightseeing experience. Flexibility really is the name of the game: I will tailor your tour to your time, pace and interests.

Beatles'n More Rock'n Roll Private Taxi Tour

Beatles'n More Rock'n Roll Private Taxi Tour

star-5
The price you see is the total cost. ............... Loads of FAB Beatles & London Rock'n Roll landmarks. Half Day London Tour (4 hours):  9.00 - 12.00pm start. Taxi tour with a very small amount of walking. ................. The title of this tour says it all, and we're not just restricted to the Beatles (this is London we're talking about). We’ll visit a certain well known recording studio (and zebra crossing) in Abbey Road as well as Marylebone marriages, film locations and blue plaques. Upmarket Mayfair and Marylebone are more rock’n roll than expected and seedy Soho more than lives up to its reputation. We may trip the edges of Covent Garden, nip into Kensington or dip into St James's for the biggest surprises of all. I never like to give too much away when writing about this tour (promised: you will get satisfaction). It spoils some of the secrets and reveals surprises best seen on the tour. All I can say is, London Calling...you'll wish you were here.
