On the trail of famous people in London

Stop #1: Abbey Road. The Beatles named an album after this street in North London and on the cover you can see the four group members walking across the zebra crossing located just outside the entrance of the music studio. Today it’s EMI’s Abbey Road Studios where many famous music performers have recorded and still record their songs, not least of whom were the Beatles, instantly recognizable by the scribblings of hundreds of fans on the wall.

Stop #2: Madame Tussauds. For everyone who always wanted to snap a selfie next to David Beckham, Angelina Jolie, Jamie Oliver, the Queen, Johnny Depp or Britney Spears, the famous wax museum is a must-see! You'll probably never get the chance to be as close to your favorite star as in the museum, so don’t forget your camera! Also, if you think you are not easy to scare, take a walk in the Chambers...

Stop #3: Notting Hill. This area of West London is not only worthwhile for fans of the eponymous movie with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, but also for shopaholics, who can spend the whole day (and all their money) at the Portobello Road Market.

Stop #4: Westend Theatres. If you're a fan of musicals, there is no way to avoid these theatres. You name, they have it here and it's an unforgettable experience you won't want to miss.

Stop #5: Buckingham Palace. You never know - you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Queen or some other member of the royal family, but in the meantime you can watch the changing of the Queen’s Guard which takes place in the forecourt.

Stop #6: Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen. Originally intended to offer fifteen disadvantaged young people a job, Jamie Oliver's non-profit restaurant spawned three other Fifteen restaurants, one in Amsterdam, one in Cornwall, and one in Melbourne.
