Studio One was the world’s first purpose-built recording studio and remains the largest.

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.

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 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.
