Welcome to Real World Studios

Set in stunning rural surroundings near the city of Bath in South West England, Real World Studios is a unique residential recording facility where artists, producers and engineers can escape their daily distractions and focus solely on making music.

A tranquil day in The Big Room as the team carry out maintenance, including the replacement of the acoustic door seals. We can confirm that the doors are incredibly heavy.

Award-winning producer and engineer Kevin Killen has had a long relationship with Peter Gabriel and Real World. He worked on Peter's seminal 1986 album 'So', as well as subsequent projects during the early years of Real World Studios, many recorded in The Big Room

"To say that this space shattered the old concept of studio design, was an understatement. Despite its size, every musician just loved working there. It drew out the most imaginative performances from one and all. You could lose yourself in the music while simultaneously watch the weather roll over the valley. Time seemed to float in that room and it was not unusual for 10-12 hours to literally speed by. But being wrapped in daylight really allowed your body to adjust accordingly and despite many a long day, I never had that drained feeling that was so common with ‘black box’ studios.” Kevin Killen
