Walk in the footsteps of legends at Abbey Road Studios – the most famous recording studio in the world is also available as a truly unique events venue.

Our legendary Studios One, Two and Three can easily be adapted to suit an array of corporate or private events; including dinners, receptions, conferences and live performances. 
We also offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including our bespoke Record a Song Experience – which offers the opportunity to make music in the rooms famously used by artists including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Adele, Amy Winehouse and Jay Z. 

Event Spaces

Studio 1

Capacity

  • Standing: 350
  • Dinner: 250
  • Conference: 300

Studio One was the world’s first purpose-built recording studio and remains the largest. Large enough to accommodate a full orchestra and choir simultaneously, the impressive room has witnessed the recording of some of cinema’s most famous film scores, including Star Wars, Harry Potter and Skyfall. 

From Elgar to Kanye West, the inspiring room has staged numerous landmark recordings, including The Beatles’ seminal performance of All you Need is Love, as part of the first ever international live satellite broadcast All You Need Is Love to the world during the first ever satellite broadcast. 

This unique space is perfectly suited to gala dinners, conferences, live music performances, parties and conferences. 

Studio 2

Capacity

  • Standing: 130
  • Dinner: 70
  • Conference: 100
Synonymous with The Beatles, Studio Two is the most famous recording facility in the world, having played an integral role in the development of modern music. 

The Beatles used the studio to record 190 songs and it is where Pink Floyd harnessed their creative energies for the era defining Dark Side of the Moon album. Over the years the legendary room has seen a very long list of acts, including U2 and Oasis, create some of their best selling work. 

Studio Two retains much of the décor and ambiance of its 1960s heyday, while brimming with cutting-edge technology. 

This exclusive room is ideal for drinks receptions, intimate dinners, and private performances, as well as press launches and screenings.

Studio 3

Capacity

  • Standing: 50
  • Dinner: 30
  • Conference: 30
The perfect environment for more intimate events, Studio Three is a contemporary space with a warm ambience that has proved popular for smaller meetings, launches, signings and press conferences.

Studio Three benefits from a mezzanine balcony and lounge areas, and its high ceiling provides an airy atmosphere for occasions of all sizes. 

The room is steeped in history. Over the years numerous artists including Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Coldplay, U2, The Beatles and Pink Floyd have used the room, and in 2011 it hosted Amy Winehouse’s last ever recording.
 

Record a Song Experience

AN UNFORGETTABLE
music experience.

Step into our hallowed corridors, normally closed to the public, and record in the very same studios, using the very same equipment as world-famous artists, including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Shirley Bassey, Amy Winehouse and Elton John. 

Over 90 minutes our Studios’ team of musical directors, engineers and vocal coaches will guide you through your session as you record the song of your choice. Your unique performance will then be expertly mixed onto a bespoke CD for you to take away. 
The experience can be tailor-made to suit groups of all sizes, whether it is an individual fan fulfilling a lifelong dream or a corporate client providing the ultimate team-building exercise or incentive event. We guarantee it will be a day to remember.
