Events in London - Friday 3rd January

Need some inspiration for 3rd January? The Beatles’ famous rooftop gig took place on this day in 1969. If you’re a fan of the band then why not go and see where it happened at No.3 Savile Row? (It’s close to Regent Street.) After that you can head across town and walk across Abbey Road’s zebra crossing.
