    It's worth paying the freelance photographer 5-pounds to get the perfect pic. Just make sure you respect the queue so everyone gets the chance to have their photo op free of accidental photo bombers!

    Been here 25+ times
    Amazing how something so common can be turned into an iconic landmark. But walking across this zebra crossing does leave you with a sense of awe. If only I were around when the album photo was taken!

    Amazing experience I have here. Staying in the middle of the road while taking pics? And walking on the line even there are cars coming? And people staring and laughing? All fun! 

    It is iconic and etc, but you can't take the dam photo because the street is extremely crowded with cars (i went there in a monday). But still is a nice place

    Take a bit more time to get the perfect timing to have better background instead of full of cars or full of people and beware of the car and honk :)

    Start with the most obvious - the scene of one of the most iconic album covers of all time and the title of the 11th Studio album from British pop icons, The Beatles.

    Walk this iconic street and crosswalk where the Beatles posed for their famous Abbey Road album cover. A must even if you’re not a Beatles fan!

    Try to be here very early of late afternoon. There's a shop. After this go to Camden Art Center.

    The easiest way to get to Abbey Road is by taking a Jubilee Line train to St John's Wood Station on the London Underground system.

    The place where my dreams came true ❣ However,it is quite difficult to take a pic when you try to walk because of the cars

    Watching the tourists posing on the crossing and the car drivers waiting for them to get out of their way is the best part of it.

    It's amazing! A must visit in London. Can't believe I crossed the same road as The Beatles 😱

    Try to remember that this is still an actual road and don't hold up traffic when taking photos.

    Is cool to see the street, the best view is from the little monument in front of the crossing. .

    Diagonally across is Abbey Road Studio. Guests are not allowed to be in the car park vicinity of the building. Appreciation on the outside, please. :(

    People will get hit by a car, be careful when taking photos... is dangerous!

    It's a busy road these days! Hard to get a picture exactly like the cover, and please keep an eye open not to get run over by a car... But totally worth it!!!

    REALLY busy road. Instead of taking the picture, you can pop a beer, sit on a wall and an take yor time laughing at angry drivers mad at tourists

    It's a bit touristy and fairly cheesy, but the abbey road studio shop is pretty cool.

    Walk across barefoot. Do it. You might get some funny looks, but it's totally worth it.

    Attn tourists: This is a busy street. If you stand in the middle of it long enough, you *will* get hit by a car. Pay attention to the traffic instead of whomever is taking your photo.

    Hard to believe there's no police to make sure tourists don't get hit by cars.

    Ignore os carros e seja feliz, eles não vão te atropelar, já estão acostumados com a movimentação e a maioria pára rapidamente pra você tirar a sua foto.

    Para sacar la foto del disco hay que pararse en el monumento y cruzar de izquierda a derecha

    Ya no está ni la placa de la calle que es un símbolo del cruce, siempre está atascado y casi nunca puedes tomar fotos, no vale mucho la pena en ese sentido.

    Cuidado con los conductores aquí, se ponen algo pesados con la gente que se toma fotos.

    Difícil conseguir achar um momento em que: ninguém atravesse com você e estrague sua foto; não tenham carros ou ônibus te escondendo da foto. Vá com paciência.
