Bringing The Beatles Back To Abbey Road

The Beatles at Abbey Road

We brought The Beatles back to Abbey Road!

Well, yeah. Obviously we didn’t really bring anyone back (no matter how much we’d love to hop into a TARDIS and bring these young fellas back with us to pose for some photos), but we did our best by sceneframing them at the legendary location.

Here’s that photo.

What do you mean we had to stand in the middle of the road to get this one?

And here’s another one. No biggie. Just The Greatest Band ever chilling on the stairs of the Abbey Road Studios on a warm summer day.

They’re cool. Ringo is the coolest, though.

The fences surrounding the studios are covered in messages scribbled by fans from all over the world. You could spend hours just trying to read it all.

Even their signage is beautifully themed.

In case you simply can’t travel all the way to London to visit the crossing and the studio gates, we recommend this amazing Abbey Road Crossing camera. Why not take a moment to watch some of the silly, neverending tourist & Beatle Fan action live from Abbey Road? (It’s an entertaining thing to watch, especially during rush hour.)

There’s also a website with a massive photo archive for touristy shots. At first glance, the site looks like something straight from the 90’s, abandoned long ago, but then you realise it’s still being updated. See: abbeyroadcrossing.com.

For those too lazy to google the location of the world’s most famous crossing, here’s a handy little map:

Big love and thanks to Diana O!

  1. […] Now, basically it’s just an underground station and we really went there for these photos thinking there’s really nothing that significant around to see, but we were wrong! The station is just around the corner from the legendary Abbey Road Studios, so we warmly recommend taking the tube down there and going for one of those dorky touristy poses at that zebra crossing! (If you’re curious how we managed to bring all the Beatles back to Abbey Road, check out this article!)

    Hard to put the Beatles back on that Abbey Road zebra crossing as they have moved it since the Fab Four’s days.

    I love this. As many times as I’ve been to London I STILL have not been to Abbey Road. I need to make it a point to visit next time. Wish I could just travel the world with you girls as my tour guide! You need an app!

  4. Ahhh I lived in London in 2001 and would love to go back one day!! You’ve inspired me!
