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.

“Sometime towards the end of 1985, prior to the release of 'So', Peter said he wanted to move somewhere bigger where he could record and make videos - a place that other people would use. I thought he was barking mad, actually. I didn't think that anybody would ever do what he was talking about doing on their own. Take the risk of throwing the amount of money into the project that it would need to make it worthwhile." Mike Large COO Real World

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.
