Who Knew

The Beatles: Abbey Road plus

Who knew ...

The Beatles were a London band (not Liverpool) for virtually all their recording career?
One Beatles film premiere was attended by zero Beatles but two ex-partners?
Paul lived the artsy life in London: the others lived in commuter-belt cosiness?
The Beatles are often referred to as a Liverpool band. Of course they started there, but as soon as they started recording they moved to London and from February 1963 did all of their recording, living and loving there. As Ringo says in Anthology "If you are in our business, you go to London- that's where it happens". So there are many places (if you know where to look) which allow you to trace key moments in their careers and lives: this walk takes you around the most important, many of which you may not be aware of. And it covers the more famous ones, like the Apple rooftop (as featured in Peter Jackson's recent "Get Back" film) and the zebra crossing outside EMI studios in Abbey Road. Note: walk includes (optional) tube journey at end to Abbey Road, not included in the Price: if you don't want to visit this, walk ends in Baker St)
Duration 120 mins (150 mins incl. Abbey Rd) (3.5km)
End 16:30pm Abbey Rd/St John's Wood tube
