The recording areas in Studio One and Four feature electronically controlled room ambience adjustment and have a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for a nervous singer!

It's very easy to get carried away when writing about the virtues of such a great studio. It's probably better to watch our video tour and interviews shot at Townhouse and then take a trip over to their web site for all of the equipment listings.

They're all very friendly down at the Townhouse and we have to ask ourselves if this is this the British Ocean Way? We think it's at least that good!
