Address Abbey Road crossing Abbey Rd, London NW8 9DD, UK

They are the most famous recording studios in the world. An institution that benefited greatly from the fame of the Beatles, whose Abbey Road album cover also gave unexpected exposure to a simple crosswalk.

Fans come by the hundreds every week to replicate the famous Abbey Road album cover on the pedestrian walkway in front of the entrance to the legendary studios. A sanctuary intimately linked to the career of the Fab Four, having also hosted top artists such as Artur Schnabel, Cliff Richard, The Shadows, Pink Floyd, Kanye West, Green Day, The Killers, U2 or Lady Gaga.
