Our London Songwriting Studios is located within the world famous Metropolis Studios in West London. Located in the suburb of Chiswick, since 1985 Metropolis has paid host to some of the world's most successful recording artists including Queen and George Michael (who recorded their Innuendo and Listen Without Prejudice albums here). A 5 minute walk from Stamford Brook tube station, the studio is conveniently located with a great selection of bars and restaurants nearby whilst still away from the hustle and bustle of Central London. There is also an on-site cafe which serves hot drinks and cold beverages. Songwriting Studios is open from 12:00pm to 8:00pm and all sessions include an audio engineer for the full session or set up only, by request on your application.
