abbey road



st johns and lizzies hospital is just round the corner from abbey road. i dont know this part of london very well, so it was a bit of a surprise to see the abbey road studios, and the beatles crossing!.

Hi Em,

Very iconic. You can almost imagine the 4 of them crossing there. Must be a bit of a strange feeling stumbling on somewhere so well known.

All the best

hi nechtan

was a bit weird to find the hospital just round the corner. bit of a bonus.

i remember working in lincolns inn, and finding out years later that the old curiosty shop was a few streets away. im either dumb or vague!!!x

Thought the Old Curiosity Shop was just fiction? It exists? Wow!

Ironically Abbey Road studios were on the news tonight. They're up for sale. I recall an interview with a London cabbie who hated that crossing, because he kept having to stop and wait whilst people had their pictures taken.

Iconic stuff Em. xx

I see that the National Trust is considering buying the studios. Good idea, I think.

When I drove down Abbey Road, many tears ago, I was waiting for the Beatles to pop out and cross tghe road - so powerful is their presence there.

Fascinating Em. Like Nechtan said, 'iconic' and quite amazing that you get to stumble on things like this in your everyday life.

hi steph

yeah the old curiosty shop is around the holborn area in london, imagine a tiny warped shop. you could see dickens walking past.

first time ive seen the studios, i heard on the news this morning about them being sold. x

hi robert

i suppose its just another street in london yet made so famous by four guys fooling around on that crossing, great to see it. x

hi diver

i will try to snap more sights when i see them. feel like a bit of a tourist now with camera in hand! x
