See, this is the problem, isn’t it? Everyone in the music industry is pissed off with Google, but you just can’t stop letting it come in and rummage around in your stuff, can you? Literally, in this case. With the help of Google, Abbey Road Studios has made available a virtual tour of the historic building, allowing you to wander around its hallways without the hassle of actually going there.

In-house producer Giles Martin says of the virtual tour: “Abbey Road Studios has been a hive of creativity and source of world-class recordings for more than 80 years. The artists using the studios have sold countless millions of records and have helped create popular culture as we know it today. It’s an inspirational place and an honour for me to work there today. This collaboration with Google gives the outside world a great insight into the everyday workings of the studio and allows anyone to glimpse the magic that goes on inside the world’s most famous recording studio”.
