Abbey Road

The Abbey Road pedestrian crossing in Northern London is one of the world’s most famous because it is on the cover of a Beatles album. The British government put it on the list of national heritage sites.


The crossing, however, is not in the exact same place it was when the Beatles walked over it in 1969. It was moved about 3 meters because of traffic reasons in the 1970s. For real fans of the Fab Four it doesn’t matter, the site still remains a place which thousands of Beatles fans visit every year.
