Exit the St. John's Wood Station and walk 2 blocks Southwest along Grove End Road until it intersects Abbey Road (about 1/4 mile). At the Abbey Road/Grove End intersection look for a plaque commemor
ating the Abbey Road album and the famous zebra crosswalk. When you take photos be careful on the busy street.
Abbey Road Studio's Wall of Signatures
Nearby you can see the Abbey Road Studios, a white building with a low wall in front. Traditionally visitors write their names and messages on the wall (which is repainted every month, so your mark will be fleeting).
The Abbey Road Studios are a working business and are not open to tourists. Photos and remembering the songs recorded by Abbey Road are free though.
There are many other interesting sites in London including the Tower of London.
More Information on the Abbey Road Zebra Crossing
The Heritage Ministry of the British Government has awarded the iconic zebra crossing at Abbey Road a Grade II listed status. With official recognition as a nationally important monument and increased protection the the famous zebra crossing outside the Abbey Road Studios will continue to draw hundreds of fans from everywhere in the world.
The Beatles launched the crosswalk into stardom when they were pictured walking across the zebra crossing on the cover of their 1969 album 'Abbey Road'. Since 1969 fans have imitated the album cover, tying up traffic and endangering pedestrian lives for the perfect shot mimicking the Fab Four.
Paul McCartney issued a statement in response to the news of the crossing being designated as a heritage site stating it was "the icing on the cake" of a "great year" for him.
A spokesperson for English Heritage noted that: "This London zebra crossing is no castle or cathedral but, thanks to The Beatles and a 10-minute photoshoot one August morning in 1969, it has just as strong a claim as any to be seen as part of our heritage."
The Abbey Road Crossing is not without controversy though. It is thought by many fans that the Abbey Road crossing has actually been moved south-east or somewhat North of the position shown on the Beatle's cover.
