No trip to London is complete without a jaunt across the legendary zebra crossing in front of world-famous Abbey Road Studios. Originally a nineteenth-century townhouse, the studios became the world’s first custom-built recording complex when established by EMI in 1929. In addition to being the home of the Beatles, Abbey Road has also hosted the production of music by Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and Oasis, as well as countless notable movie scores. The studios are closed to the public, but tourists still stop by to soak up the atmosphere, read the graffiti tribute fence, cross the street, and perhaps hum a few timeless tunes.
