At the London Beatles Store, which sells Fab Four memorabilia, owner Howard Cohen said the mix-up over the location of the studio is not new — because there are so many Abbey roads in London — but that the mishaps have been exacerbated by the new Abbey Road Station in a distant part of the capital.
“We get so many people coming in looking for the studios that we have maps printed up with directions, free, as a service,” he said. “It’s a bit confusing.”
Even worse, he said, are the hapless tourists who arrive at Liverpool Street Station in central London and think they, in fact, are in Liverpool, the Beatles’ hometown.
The answer, sadly, is 210 miles to the north.
How to get to the Beatles’ Abbey Road: From central London, take the Jubilee Line north to St. John’s Wood Station. Then walk west for three blocks on Grove End Road. Abbey Road will be on your right.
