The Abbey Road live cam is an amusing chance to observe the Beatles’ legacy in action. Managed by EarthCam, this livestream offers viewers a 24-hour view of the famous Abbey Road zebra crossing.
Within a few minutes of watching, it’s easy to see the traffic hazard caused by the unrelenting stream of tourists and Beatles fans who want to recreate the famous Abbey Road album cover. Clusters of hopefuls can often be seen standing on either side of the crossing, waiting for a break in traffic that will allow them to get their photo.
Of course, the livestream also shows people going about their daily lives amidst the chaos, as London buses stream by and pedestrians pass without knowing or caring that this crossing is a treasured location for some people.
If you want to see some highlights, EarthCam has put together a video showcasing the best of Abbey Road.
