Professional Studio Facilities


Our flagship school, Abbey Road Institute London, is located inside the historic Angel Recording Studios in Islington, near Kings Cross. We also have a dedicated studio for our students at Abbey Road in St John’s Wood.

Our new home at Angel Studios has been home to iconic recordings from Adele, Sam Smith and The Cure to film scores such as Leon, GoldenEye, Downton Abbey and many, many more. In 2021 the beautiful Grade ll listed building was carefully restored and renovated to house our 2 Tech Labs, 3 Production Suites, Studios including ‘Angel Two’ and ‘Angel Post’.

Students have access to our facilities to work 7 days a week. We’re proud to host our school in a professional studio environment that supports all areas of the education we offer.

These take place at different stages of your studies, depending on the modules you’re working on. Our facilities include 2 recording studios (one at Angel Studios and one at Abbey Road Studios), each providing a live room and a professional-standard control room. At Angel, we have two Tech Labs where your lectures are hosted and are equipped with individual workstations for each student. These are complemented by three Production Suites which are bookable by students 7 days a week and ‘Angel Post’ our brand new Dolby Atmos Suite.

You have access to the Institute’s facilities both as part of your timetabled teaching and outside of classes for independently managed recording, production and mixing. You can start your project in the studio and continue recording, editing and mixing on the workstations in the Tech Labs or in the Production Suites. Our studios feature a wide array of software and hardware allowing for various hybrid setups which are both practical and suitable for the modern-day audio production environment.

An inspiring and incredibly well designed course that gave me the best musical education I could have dreamt of. Life-altering.

David Dargahi, Alumni

The curriculum is fantastic, extremely comprehensive, contemporary and relevant to today’s industry.

Andrea Mastroiacovo, Alumni

This course has helped to develop me into a well rounded producer, engineer, and musician. It has helped open doors to career opportunities that I would otherwise not have had access to. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the fantastic team, course, and resources available at Abbey Road Institute London!

The course taught me what it means to be a producer and engineer in the industry, I learned things I couldn’t have learned anywhere else.

It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to Abbey Road Studios for classes is pretty amazing. There aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!

Come with an open mind and a voracious appetite to soak up the magic! Be prepared to work hard - you’ll get out what you put in.
