Whether you're looking for things to do in London such as events and attractions, you should visit the famous Abbey Road crossing! It is situated in an inner London borough, the City of Westminster.
An iconic place for any musicians especially "The Beatles" fans. Over the years, Abbey Road Studios has been hosting recording session for many famous artists from Radiohead, Oasis, Amy Winehouse, and Muse to Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Frank Ocean, and Adele. They have made Abbey Road Studios as part of their recording journey.
Here's a video of Abbey Road Crossing!
Itinerary : Little Venice, Abbey Road Studios, Camden Market & Carnaby Street.
We took a trip to Abbey Road Studios for our mini "musical tour". Before heading to the studio, we suggest you alight at Paddington Station and take a walk down Little Venice. Enjoy the greenery!
You will catch a glimpse of boat house and restaurant along the river.

Next stop, we walk down Abbey Road to take a bus to Camden Market. It is where the famous Amy Winehouse statue is located. It reminds me of Bugis Street with shops and food stands all around. It took about 35mins bus ride from Abbey Road.
