An area of east London is experiencing an unexpected influx of tourists.
Abbey Road DLR Station in Newham is proving a magnet for Beatles fans keen to pay homage to their heroes.
Unfortunately for them they are in fact more than ten miles from where they think they are.
Piers Hopkirk has more:
London Tonight spoke to these tourists at the station in West Ham.
The Abbey Road station on the Docklands Light Railway was only opened last year.
Transport for London says it has no intention to re-name it.
– Transport for London.
“ TfL does all it can to make navigation around the Capital as easy and straightforward as possible and it is unfortunate that some visitors sometimes get confused by the odd duplicate place names in our large and varied city. One of the ways of making navigation around London convenient to all is to name stations after the streets on which they are situated – as is the case with the DLR Abbey Rd station - or the surrounding area. This situation is also a reminder that when visiting one of the world’s largest and varied cities, nothing beats some in depth research.”
Confused tourists are arriving in their dozens at the newly-opened Abbey Road Station in West Ham, expecting to find the zebra crossing made famous by The Beatles.
But they're actually ten miles away from the north London location featured on the cover of The Beatles' 1969 album of the same name.
