B507 Lisson Grove - Kilburn

Route

The famous zebra crossing on Abbey Road, London, with the studios in the background

The B507 runs through northwest central London parallel to the A5.

The starts at a light-controlled junction with the A501 Marylebone Road just east of Edgware Road Tube station and heads north up Lisson Grove. It crosses the easy-to-miss Regents Canal then the A5205 at traffic lights before skirting Lords cricket ground on Grove End Road. When that street name bears right by a memorial to sculptor Edward Onslow Ford the B507 bears left (and retains priority) onto Abbey Road, which it follows for the remainder of its route. It goes over the West Coast Main Line and crosses the B509 at traffic lights before bearing left to end on the B510 Quex Road, where that road TOTSOs

The zebra crossing just north of the junction with Grove End Road and Abbey Road was the location for The Beatles' Abbey Road album cover. Consequently the B507 could be considered one of the most recognised British roads in the world. There is a permanent webcam showing the crossing and junction. For locals this means that the area is a place to avoid as tourists cross and recross the road trying to recreate the image on the album cover.
