For one week in August, Abbey Road Studios opens its doors to the public, offering a rare glimpse inside the legendary studios.
Running daily from 9 August to 15 August, Abbey Road: Open House is part of Abbey Road Studios’ 90th anniversary celebrations, taking guests on a specially curated journey through the Studios’ history.
For the first time ever, visitors will be able to explore all three of the original recording rooms made famous by artists from Shirley Bassey, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Kate Bush to Oasis, Kanye West, Adele, Ed Sheeran and Frank Ocean and discover the stories that made Abbey Road a legend. Beyond the Studios, visitors will be able to access the control rooms and the famous Studio Two Echo Chamber – all with a rich history dating back to 1931.
Giving more access than ever before, ticketholders will be able to explore the Studios’ legacy of innovation from the patenting of stereo to the invention of numerous recording techniques still used across the globe today. The Open House will also cover the Studios’ rich history of film scoring and demonstrate how the studios have been used to record the music from some of the biggest movies ever made, including Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, many of the Harry Potter, Marvel and Star Wars films, Black Panther, The Kings Speech, and the Oscar winning scores for Gravity and The Shape of Water.
