St John’s Wood, Little Venice and Abbey Road

abbey road

The two-hour walk passes the Abbey Road recording studio and the famous Beatles pedestrian crossing. Our Greeter may even be able to include a private visit to that most English of institutions, Lord’s Cricket ground (the home of cricket) and a viewing of a game of Real tennis (the original rackets game developed during the times of Henry VIII). Onwards through St Johns Wood and Maida Vale’s 100 years of residential architecture, this Greet finishes on the Regent’s canal and Little Venice basin. An optional extra hour on this Greet allows for a serene canal ride through Regent’s Park to finish at the lively Camden Market.
