Located a short walk from the St. John's tube station, Abbey Road Studios is something of a landmark for Beatles fans.

The Beatles originally auditioned for George Martin here in 1961. They played 32 songs. They recorded songs such as "Please Please Me" and "Love Me Do". Martin did not think Pete Best had the necessary skills as a drummer.

Between 1962 and 1970, nearly all of the Beatles music was recorded here, predominantly in Studio 2. The cover for their 1969 album Abbey Road was shot on the "zebra" crossing right outside these studios.
