Abbey Road Studios Celebrates 50 Years of The Beatles' 'Abbey Road'

13th August 2019
On Thursday 8 August 2019, thousands of Beatles' fans descended onto Abbey Road and made a pilgrimage to Abbey Road 50 years on from when the Fab Four posed on the same zebra crossing for the cover of the band's last-recorded album, which is now set for reissue in a variety of formats to be released on 27 September.

Relive the entire celebrations from the day with the Abbey Road Crossing Camera, powered by EarthCam. Witness John Lennon's famous Rolls Royce make an appearance and the crowd breaking into a chorus of Hey Jude.
 
 
Since the release of the iconic eleventh studio album, and last to be recorded, the zebra crossing has become a tourist hot-spot for devout fans who stop traffic to pose for pictures on the same spot. We've been asking fans to send in their versions of the famous crossing pose where we received an overwhelming response! Take a look at the gallery.

Not only tourists, but film stars and politicians, to musicians and athletes have also been joining in throughout the decades. Check out our favourite homages to the band's most famous album cover here.
 
 
Amid the crowds and celebrations on the day, we also gave fans the opportunity to have their photo taken against the original 1969 Beatles image in the Abbey Road car park. Take a look below at a few of our favourites from the day, including the legendary Nile Rodgers taking part!
 
 
Keep checking in to see what else we have planned for the rest of the Summer to celebrate the iconic album!

The expanded 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road is available from 27 September and can be pre-ordered now.
