Number 3 Savile Row, London

On the 30th of January 1969 the Beatles played their last public performance on the roof of Apple Records HQ at Number 3 Savile Row, London. They played for over forty minutes, and would have played for longer, if it hadn't been for complaints about noise from some of the other tenants in Savile Row.

Like most Beatles places Number 3 Savile Row has to be searched out. It is a special place hidden in the "everyday" world, like Penny Lane, or the zebra crossing outside the Abbey Road studios. The Beatles tended to break down the differences between what is important and unimportant.

Sadly you cannot go inside and up to the roof for an impromptu concert of your own. One way to look at the famous roof directly is to go to the map link below, switch to satellite and zoom in. As indicated by the marker, No 3 is the second building in, on the right hand side of Savile Row if you were walking north.

Directions: Savile Row is just off Regent Street in London. Click here for an interactive road and satellite map centred on 3 Savile Row.
