I agree that this is only worth a special trip for a dedicated Beatles fan, but for those fans its great. Just a short bus journey out of Oxford Street and you can recreate the famous zebra-crossing album cover yourself (as many do, and constantly hold up my bus in the process!). The walls outside are always on a cycle; get progressively more covered in graffiti and then painted white again, so don't expect your 'I woz ere' to win it's place in history there!
I live around the corner from Abbey Road Studios. Unless you're a massive beatles fan don't bother going to see it, it's a big dissappointment as you can't even go in. The other day I walked past and saw a couple of unknown musicians thinking they were the mutts nutts having a smoke on the steps, clearly just tambourine players as any self respecting famous musician would smoke out the back away from the public.
