Abbey Road


The Beatles popularized this north London road with the release of the eponymous album in 1969. Its jacket famously features the four Brits crossing Abbey road from EMI Studios (now named Abbey Road Studios, after the album), where they spent the better part of the 1960s recording their music. The street, known for little else, continues to attract the attention of Beatles devotees wishing to reenact the iconic album cover photograph by crossing the street.
