Discover the Beatles' London

The BBC has declared Beatles Week, to celebrate a new load of clips they've cobbled together, so what better time to reflect on the London lives of the band?

Well apart from the obvious Abbey Road zebra crossing, London Beatles Walks can also take you on a tour of other sites in our fair city including the Apple Corps Building at 3 Saville Row where the band recorded parts of the Let It Be album, and performed their 'rooftop session', their last ever gig.

You can also see the former Apple Boutique at 94 Baker Street, Marylebone registry office in Marylebone Road, where Paul McCartney married Linda Eastman, and Ringo Starr married Barbara Goldbach, Ringo's former basement flat at 34 Montagu Square, where John and Yoko lived temporarily and where the 'Two Virgins' picture was taken, and the the house where Paul lived with Jane Asher, and where John and Paul wrote I Want To Hold Your Hand.

And if that isn't enough, did you know there is a Beatles Coffee Shop on Abbey Road, or a Beatles Store on Baker Street?

London Beatles Tours cost £7. For more information, visit http://www.beatlesinlondon.com/

  1. Old Street tube station (as was) and St Pancras Old Church were both visited on the same day in July 1968 by the band.
