Taking cliched tourist photos might be embarrassing, but they’re an essential part of visiting an iconic city, so pull out your cameras with pride and pose like nobody’s watching. In London, that means grabbing your fellow Beatlemaniacs and trekking out to Abbey Road for a photographic tribute to England’s most famous rock ‘n’ roll band. Queue up behind the other groups of cautious street crossers as you assign Beatle roles to your friends. When arguments about who has to be Ringo and whether Paul really needs to be barefoot subside, line up and have one of your less musically enlightened pals rush to the center of the street and ready their camera. You only have one chance to get this right, so on the count of three, proceed along the crosswalk and try not to crack a smile as the flash goes off. Once safely across, check out your perfect imitation of one of the most famous album covers in history. With the photo out of the way, it’s time to head to the famous Apple Studios to continue your Fab Four fanaticism, still walking in the footsteps of musical giants.
