Abbey road connects the borough of Camden and the City of Westminster in London. It runs from southeast through St. John’s Wood till Lord’s Cricket Ground. It is known for Abbey road studios and it became famous for 1969 Beatles album Abbey road. The Beatles recorded their album here at the Abbey road studios, the cover of the album showed the members walking the zebra crossing on the Abbey road crossing. It was listed as grade 2 building in 2010 by English Heritage. The wall next to the zebra crossing is painted in every three months because of graffiti done by the fans here now and then. The Abbey Road sign was replaced to atop the building from the crossing as it was frequently stolen and painted.
