Back during my primary school days, The Beatles were creating a storm with their music and hair-do, and I naturally became a fan. So in London, we took the opportunity to check-out the London Beatles Store at Baker street. It is London’s first and only Beatles Shop totally devoted to everything Beatles. It’s open daily from 10am – 6.30pm. You’ll find new and original 60’s Beatles memorabilia, T-shirts, posters, records, mugs, books, plus autographs among others. Depending on what you’re looking for, prices ranges from a couple of pounds right up to a couple of hundreds.
After browsing the store, we headed to Abbey Road studios where it all started for The Beatles. London Beatles Store provided a pamphlet on how to get there. You can take bus no. 139/189 from Gloucester Place bus stop nearby and it will take you to Abbey Road bus stop right in-front of ‘Abbey Road Shop’ beside the studio. At this shop, you can obtain more Beatles memorabilia. The famous Abbey Road crossing is here too but expect small groups taking pictures while they cross the road imitating how The Beatles did it decades ago.
