London: Abbey Road Crossing
Behold, Abbey Road Crossing.
If you're a Beatles fan, no doubt one place you'll definitely want to see during your visit to London is Abbey Road Crossing.
The day we chose to go was busy and difficult to achieve a moment alone on the crossing for a photo, although, persevering we managed to snap several. We must have crossed the road around 15 times to achieve this, laughing a bunch in the process.
Visiting Abbey Road crossing was a lot of fun and best of all, free. If wishing to spend a little cash, there is also the option to peruse the gift shop operated at Abbey Road Studios (open 9:30am–5:30am). Unfortunately, viewing of the studios is off limits as they are often in use, still, thanks to google, you can still take a peek inside by visiting Inside Abbey Road.
THE ABBEY ROAD CROSSING LIVE STREAM
There is a video camera set up at Abbey Road Studios that focuses on the crossing 24/7, so If you've recently been to the Abbey Road Crossing and want to have a good laugh at yourself walking back and forth across the road and posing for photos, let's face it, like a bit of a fool, view yourself online on the EarthCam: Abbey Road Crossing Camera (the camera can also be viewed through the 'Live' section on the Abbey Road Studio's website, however, I find the EarthCam link displays better quality video.
Note: You only have 24 hours from the time of your visit to access the footage online.
