The area
Address
Neighborhood: Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
How to get there

You have to be a die hard Beatles fan. I tried to bribe a young clerk to open the door to the roof. Nope. 50 pounds? Nope. You can walk down an outside staircase to the blocked out windows of the basement where Long and Winding Road was partially recorded. So in my opinion it was great. I felt so close to the music and band that I love.

That’s us on the steps. We sneaked into the building via the rooftops. They thought we were a band. Magical 😊. The account is written up, with more pics., in the books ‘Ask Ron & Eddie’ and ‘Some Other People’s Lives’.
Just walk along Savile Row and take in the significance of that era.

All Beatles fans should take the time, while in London, for a quick visit to 3 Savile Row. This famous building is, of course, the former site of the group's Apple Records and the site of the the band's final live performance. Although access is denied to the building or the famour roof, it's still worth spending a few minutes by the door remembering the excietment that once was.

PROS
* Site of the Beatles last live performance- the one in the rooftop 30 January 1969: there is a blue plaque on the building

CONS
* Now a clothing chain office

“I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
… because I love and live the Beatles music, and that’s continuous for me from 9 February 1964 straight until 22 February 2024.

I had already visited and walked the Abbey Road zebra crossing earlier in that week.

It was a short walk from the circus area known as Pick a dilly.

The nondescript building has a blue plaque describing the historical event that happened on the roof.

I was not the only person visiting this tourist site

WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
It was free

WOULD “I VISIT THIS PLACE” AGAIN?
If I’m near there

ADVICE
As I’ve written before about this place and about Abbey Road, “you either know what this place is or you don’t, it’s as simple as that.” So if you know what it is, then come and see it, and if not – not.

I have walked past this great London Town House many times and always think of the obvious rooftop concert and also of the late and very great Billy Preston who played keyboards.on this and other Beatles sessions.
I remember the original Georgian front door being offered in one of Sotheby's early Rock and Roll memorabilia sales in the 1980's
When I looked by last week the building is now a Fashion Label shop but they have a "Beatles/Apple" display case in the hall where some Oriental Tourists were gathered to soak-up the shrine like atmosphere.
The location is just near the end of the Burlington Arcade off Piccadiilly.
The property had once been the home of Lord Nelson's Lady Hamilton, and had also later belonged to entertainment impresario Jack Hilton.
It became The Beatles' base for Apple when they officially moved in on 15 July 1968.
The Beatles paid £500.000 for No.3 Savile Row. Today it would be worth around £30-60m

Sure you can't go up to the roof or even in the building and I believe the facade is somewhat different (might have had shutters on the windows in 69..) HOWEVER just to stand in front of the building (I took a video and printed off some stills) was for me a pretty religious experience..having read a great book detailing the Let It Be sessions in the winter of 69 at Twickenham Studios..it took on added significance...The Beatles stifled for weeks by the environment the constant intrusion of cameras, tape recorders and hanger ons, the spectre of George's threatened departure were finally free to do what they did best...perform...and the result was their greatest live performance ever....the material was so polished and the playing tight because of the endless rehearsals both as part of the movie footage and the recording sessions that were moved to the Apple building just prior to the rooftop concert...the addition of Billy Preston not only added significantly to the quality of the performances but revitalised the Beatles who had seriously considered adding him to the line-up...In context as a Beatles fan I believe this site more significant than Abbey Road studios as that facility was and is used by many artists..this place is special..!!

Okay so it's really just a photo op outside a clothing store now, but the UK and London have finally given it the historical recognition it deserves by placing a plaque on the building outside commemorating The Beatles' last live performance. The plaque is located about halfway up the front of the building. One cannot actually see the rooftop from the streets, which is why the Beatles performed there in January 1969, people were climbing all over the place to get a look. If you are a Beatles fanatic like me, you need to go and get your pic taken. Pus its in a post section of London near some great clothing stores.

This is the location of The Beatles celebrated rooftop performance of 1969. It became a place for Beatles fans to congregate. The Beatles spent the best part of 18 months living here. There is not much to show or see here but if you are a die-hard Beatles fan, this is one place you should visit.

This is the location of one of the most iconic Beatles events. The outdoor, roof top concert where the police eventually shut them down as amazed on lookers from below watched. No, there is not much to see, but you can say that you have been there! This would be the band's last live performance. This is obviously for the big Beatles fan, but free and easy enough to pass by on your way to other points of interest.

Don't get too excited about this property. It was the address of apple from 1968 to around 1972, but has little remaining that dates from this period. The whole of the interior was gutted during renovation in the 1970's and cladding was added to the ground floor facade. There is certainly no recording studio in the basement anymore, and even access to it by steps from the street level via the railings on the left has been removed. I think only the front brickwork of the property is original and I'm sure the roof has been recovered at least a couple of times over the last 30 years!!
