Alongside the rooms and bars, we house a state-of-the-art recording studio situated in The Albion Rooms – open for hire to signed and unsigned bands all with our awesome on-hand sound engineer.

We offer air-conditioned recording spaces with amazing acoustics and natural daylight and with its rich, artistic roots and a bohemian spirit – Margate is the ideal backdrop for making music.

Come to write, record and relax with the sea on your doorstep…

The studio

Comprises of a control room, large live room and booth. Centered around nSSL AWS 928 console and ATC monitoring, the studio spec is incredible.

Designed by Studio People, the studio has been completed to the highest finish throughout.

The live room is easily big enough to host full band setups and even smaller string ensembles. It also benefits from access to a huge amount of instruments and backline, all courtesy of The Libertines.

There’s also a booth big enough for a full drum setup or perfect
isolation for amps or vocalist.

We offer accommodation in our seven rooms (subject to availability) or we can put you in touch with our local accommodation provider, just a few doors down.
