"Visit #1 - Stop #5: Abbey Road" Abbey Road & Abbey Road Studios Tip by Jehcekah

Abbey Road & Abbey Road Studios, London: 19 reviews and 33 photos

This was the most disappointing part of our trip. We really had our hearts set on going to Abbey Road and seeing the famous crossing. Our guidebook didn't have an entry for this, so we tried to go to it on our own. We made our way to the Bakerloo Underground line and got off at the Kilburn stop, which looked to be the closest to Abbey Road on our map.
We realized immediately as we got off of the train that we were in a not-so-touristy area. There was a map of the area at the station exit, but Abbey Road didn't appear to be in walking distance. We walked over to the bus shelter, but felt VERY uncomfortable as we were being stared at by some people waiting for the bus. Because of the way it made us feel, we decided to not attempt to go to Abbey Road. So we went back to the station and got on the first train out of there! If you attempt to go to Abbey Road on your visit to London, I suggest doing your research and maybe trying it in a car.
