The Beatles’ album cover catapulted Abbey Road into global consciousness, but the area has tons to offer besides Beatles fandom, from Regent’s Park to the canals of Little Venice. These hotels around Abbey Road – bookable with Culture Trip – range from lavish to budget-friendly, and are perfectly positioned for exploring the best of London.
This peaceful and pretty neighbourhood in St John’s Wood framed one of the most famous – and most imitated – album covers of all time. It was here that the Beatles strode over a zebra crossing to create the cover of their celebrated Abbey Road album, recorded a few minutes away in Abbey Road Studios. Once you’ve strolled over the crossing yourself, there’s much more to be enjoyed around the area, which also provides good access to the rest of London. Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace are easily reachable, and culture-seekers can hop between the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum and Design Museum. Bed down nearby with a stay at one of these hotels.
