The most famous recording studios in London

Of course, we couldn’t talk about recording studios without paying our respects to London’s most famous recording studios. 

  • Britannia Row Studios. Pink Floyd built this studio to record their 1975 album Wish You Were Here. Since then, it has played host to Jocelyn Brown, Westlife, and Mike Skinner.
  • Abbey Road Studios. Famous for the Beatles album of the same name and that iconic pedestrian crossing that everyone now photographs themselves walking across. 
  • Trident Studio. The Beatles recorded here, too, when making some of their White Album. It has also welcomed Elton John, Queen, the Bee Gees, Lou Reed, and the Rolling Stones.
  • RGM Sound. Created by producer Robert George Meek, well-known for making experimental pop with space-age sounds. He went on to win the prestigious Iver Novello award in 1962.
  • Sarm Studios. Opened by producer Trevor Horn, Sarm went on to be used by Band Aid, the Pet Shop Boys, Stereophonics, and Radiohead. 
  • Olympic Sound Studios. An iconic studio on par with Abbey Road, Olympic Sound has played host to Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Dusty Springfield.
  • Townhouse Studios. Created by Richard Branson in 1978, Townhouse has been used by The Jam, Coldplay, Jamiroquai, and Phil Collins.
