Beatles aficionados can't possibly visit London without making a pilgrimage to this famous recording studio in St John's Wood. The studios themselves are off limits, so you'll have to content yourself with examing the decades of fans' graffiti on the fence outside. Stop-start local traffic is long accustomed to groups of tourists lining up on the zebra crossing to re-enact the cover of the fab four's 1969 masterpiece Abbey Road . In 2010 the crossing was rewarded with Grade II heritage status.

For a strangely engrossing live view of the crossing, check out the webcam on the studio's website. To get here, take the tube to St John's Wood, cross the road, follow Grove End Rd to its end and turn right.
