Where Did John, Paul and George try to post Ringo into a letterbox? Which railway stations were locations in 'A Hard Day's Night?' 'Where was 'I Am The Walrus' filmed? They may have been born in Liverpool, but London was the Beatles' home away from home; the place where they really grew into their roles as international musical and cultural icons. Subsequently, all over the city, there are sites which represent a significant shared moment in the history of the band, and that of London.
"The Beatles London" is a celebration of those places, both a guide book and a treasure trove of Beatles' nuggets. This unique and fascinating book details how London and the Beatles were, and always be, connected together at the time of a great social and cultural shift. Originally published in 1994, this new edition has been full updated and reformatted, and includes a section on 'Beatles walks' to take across the capital.
Setting out on the long winding road to Beatle enlightenment and avoiding any pot-holed zebra crossings along the way........ This is a guide to the best and most highly regarded books* about The Beatles. Of course there will always be some debate about what makes a good Beatles book but these are based on many reviews and also feedback from hardcore Beatle fans. Your feedback is welcomed. *First Hand Accounts books vary in quality but I have listed for historical interest.
