It has to be assumed that TfL would only name an East End DLR stop in a back alley off Stratford, Abbey Road, purely to troll tourists.
We all know that the real Abbey Road is situated near Lord’s cricket ground, a short walk from St. John’s Wood station. I therefore went in anticipation of some Fab Four references, happy in the knowledge that this would be one of the easiest stations to provide a unique blog name for. I was not disappointed. This Beatles themed coffee shop sits within the ticket hall foot print and even underneath the station name itself. This is too easy St. John’s Wood, you’re not even trying… (I’ll regret those words on my trip up the Jubilee Line later).
