Airbnb is giving four lucky guests a free gift overnight stay in North London’s most famous townhouse — the emblematic Abbey Road Studios.

The two-level Studio 3 in St. John’s Wood – where many of music’s greatest artists have been discovered – will be converted into a temporary one-night-only bedroom on October 15.

After being welcomed with champagne by London-based musician and producer Mark Ronson, who will act as host, guests will be given a tour and full access to all areas of the studio.

It’ll include a chance to play The Beatles’ piano (with cigarette burns that date back to ‘The White Album’ recordings), mix a track on the world’s largest mixing desk, and even record a song. with help from Ronson.

They will also be entitled to dinner, snacks, drinks and two nights in a nearby Airbnb listing before and/or after the stay.

The “house rules” simply state things like “leave your mark” and “turn it up to 11 – we have soundproofing”.

“I was born and raised around the corner from Abbey Road Studios, one of the greatest studios of all time,” Ronson said. “Over the years working at Abbey Road I have come to know many of the engineers there and hearing the legendary album recording stories is one of the great things about being in the building.”

It was at Abbey Road Studios where Pink Floyd recorded “Dark Side of The Moon” and where Amy Winehouse recorded “Body & Soul”, her last song with Tony Bennett.

“Unless you’re a recording artist, getting into Abbey Road Studios is nearly impossible,” said James McClure, Airbnb’s managing director for Northern Europe.

“It’s a unique opportunity for a music lover to cross its threshold and discover thousands of stories that live within its walls,” he said.
