The Beatles Lovers' Guide To London And Liverpool
The last set of recordings in the band's townhouse-turned-studio in St. John's Wood, London, was named after the street it’s on — "Abbey Road." At 11:35 a.m. on August 8, 1969, John, Paul, George, and Ringo stepped outside and walked the "zebra crossing," and recreating the album cover at the busy crossing is a must for any fan.

The band’s Apple Corps holding company had its offices at 3 Savile Row, where Beatles, friends, employees, label signees, reporters, groupies, and even Hell's Angels hung about. The basement had a recording studio where the album "Let it Be" would be polished, and the group's last live performance together was on the roof on January 30, 1969.

Beatlemania hysteria was recreated in the 1964 film "A Hard Day's Night," when the lads ran from a crowd (fans joined paid extras for the shoot) to Marylebone Station to escape via train. George Harrison told the Liverpool Echo about the filming, "It's funny, but when you start running like that, you somehow forget that It's not real."

Paul McCartney penned several songs including "Yesterday" at 57 Wimpole Street, as well as many others at 7 Cavendish Avenue. Ringo Starr’s name was on the lease at 34 Montagu Square, but it was used for music writing and recording by McCartney and William S. Burroughs, and was rented by Jimi Hendrix, as well as John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

To alleviate public appearances as Beatlemania took over, The Beatles shot the videos for "Rain" and "Paperback Writer" at the studio, and Chiswick House and Gardens. Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys, nearby school kids, and supposedly Eleanor Rigby were on hand for the shoot, which was blessed with "great Beatles weather," according to director Michael Lindsay-Hogg.
