There's a bakery called Penny Lane. One half of it is set up like an English pub, and they have lots of Beatles' memorabilia on display, including gold and platinum records, lots of photos, and various guitars. Some of the guitars could have been the actual guitars that George played, otherwise they're from the same production run (like John's black and white Rickenbacker).
And the Beetle has the same number plate as in the Abbey Road LP cover (the original Beetle from that photograph is apprently in a museum in Germany).

You can watch people on the crossing on webcam.

Cool shot. I took a group of teenage girls from Nebraska to Europe 20 years ago. We had 1 1/2 days in London and the ONLY thing two of them wanted to do was go to Abbey Road and cross in the crosswalk. That they could also put their names on the graffiti covered wall there sent them over the top :)
