The famous street (whose signage has sadly been stolen many a time) that inspired the Beatles' 1967 classic song. John's childhood home was near here, and he and Paul used to regularly meet up at the Penny Lane junction to head into town when they were just young lads - long before rock'n'roll stardom.
This is New Row, an enchanted place off St Martin’s Lane in London. You can get to New Row via King Street from the Covent Garden piazza, after crossing Garrick. New Row ends at St Martin’s as you see here; and the architecture of the old theaters in this area is fantastically fabulous.
