Jack Franklin, head of events at Abbey Road Studios, said he opened the studio’s doors to the public in a statement [via MusicRadar]: “As a working studio, the doors to Abbey Road are normally closed, so being able to share a rare glimpse inside our very special building is something that excites us all.

I still remember the magic of stepping inside the building for the first time, so we want to give our customers the same experience this summer.
Tickets for the tour are priced at £ 100 per person.
