Music Richmond

There's a really broad range of music in Richmond upon Thames. You can experience stadium rock in Twickenham, swing in Kew Gardens, there are many pubs that host live gigs - and then there's a long list of more classical music.

Although the fabled Olympic Studios in Barnes where major artists such as Led Zeppelin, Oasis, Prince, Madonna, The Beatles, David Bowie and Duran Duran had all recorded closed down in Feb 2009, you can still record an album at Pete Townsend's Eel Pie Studios which are located on a boat moored in Richmond.
