    This book is simply indispensable for The Beatles' fan who wants to see all the places where members of the band lived, recorded, filmed, had photo sessions or just simply hung-out during the sixties. As is common knowledge, once the band signed to EMI (& under the guidance of Brian Epstein in 1963) they became London/Home Counties-based, & most of their activities (when not touring) were confined to this part of the country. The book has been meticulously & lovingly researched, with every detail This book is simply indispensable for The Beatles' fan who wants to see all the places where members of the band lived, recorded, filmed, had photo sessions or just simply hung-out during the sixties. As is common knowledge, once the band signed to EMI (& under the guidance of Brian Epstein in 1963) they became London/Home Counties-based, & most of their activities (when not touring) were confined to this part of the country. The book has been meticulously & lovingly researched, with every detail covered. Lots of 'before & after' photos, helpful maps & diagrams too, & many surprises to be found. I've had great fun going on my own 'Beatles Walks' around London using this book, & showing others the sights too. It's also fun taking pics of the places mentioned (as they are now), & recreating your own photos at the same locations where Beatle boots once trod! It's an excellent & fascinating book, & a fine record of the world's greatest band's history & activities in 1960s London.

    This astonishing book delivers on what it promises, it guides you through 467 sites in London (and sometimes in Kent) that are tied to The Beatles. It can be either as important as Abbey Road Studios or as inconsequential as the place Paul ate with Jane Asher after the premiere of Alfie, but the depth of research is what makes this book so impeccable. Of course this is the sort of book that will become outdated as time goes on, but even then it will be a near-perfect companion for mapping The Be This astonishing book delivers on what it promises, it guides you through 467 sites in London (and sometimes in Kent) that are tied to The Beatles.

Of course this is the sort of book that will become outdated as time goes on, but even then it will be a near-perfect companion for mapping The Beatles' London activities. I bought this since I'll be visiting London in a couple of weeks, and I want to be able to use it to recognize sites I wouldn't have known were there without it. I'm sure it'll be an even greater resource there!

    A delightful and insightful little book. Beatles fans will enjoy reading about the London of the 60s.

    An extremely well documented book, it contains a lot of details about what the Beatles did in and around London town - big, small, together or individually. It contains tons of photos, maps and useful comments about places and buildings - even those that are not there anymore. I enjoyed this book very much - and I'm not even a Beatles fan!
