Although the crossing is on a busy North London thoroughfare, traffic regularly grinds to a halt several times an hour as visitors and tourists re-enact the album cover scene of the Fab Four processing across the road.
Now, thanks to the day-and-night webcam, the zebra crossing can be viewed in real time by the whole world on the Abbey Road Studios website.
As well as mimicking the well-known album cover, people can regularly be seen waving, singing to the camera, or holding up messages for their friends in other countries to see.
Spokeswoman Holly Pearson said: “The HD webcam is hands-down the most popular page on our website. It allows those who can’t make it in person to experience the crossing vicariously, by watching people re-enact the cover.
“We’ve seen an amazing range of activity on the crossing over the past couple of years: countless re-enactments of the legendary Beatles album cover, real live penguins crossing, a marriage proposal, people cartwheeling across… all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff.”
Although the Beatles Abbey Road cover shot was taken 43 years ago, it still makes the news.
The crossing itself was given Grade II listed status in 2010, and most recently it was used when the torch for the Paralympic games was carried across it.
