Men’s tailors in Savile Row, LondonTailors in Savile Row, London No.3 Savile Row, home to The Beatles’ Apple StudioThe Beatles at No. 3 Savile Row

Savile Row is famous for its tailors making men’s suits and shirts. The oldest business is Gieves & Hawkes at No.1, which has been in existence since 1785. Other famous names include Hardy Amies at No.14, and Henry Poole – who was once the tailor to Napoleon III.

The Beatles’ gig on the roof

When The Beatles moved their Apple office to No.3 in 1968, Savile Row found itself home to Apple Scruffs and Beatlemania. Fans would camp outside on the stairs to get a glimpse of Paul McCartney walking through.

By 1969 The Beatles were busy recording their Let It Be project, and the strain was starting to show. They were no longer getting along as friends and instead of holding a big gig to finish, they decided to do a few songs on the roof of their Apple office – where no fans could see them.

Unfortunately it was cut short after half-an-hour when nearby businesses put a complaint in to the police, who ascended the stairs and turned off their amps.
