Decca Studios

Decca Studios

Profile:
British recording studio, based in London, UK.
Name variations: "Decca Studio No. 1"

Decca's recording and mastering studios since 1937, the building in West Hampstead, London, housed three main studios and control rooms and five mastering rooms.
The studios were closed in 1980, renamed "Lilian Baylis House", and became the residence of the English National Opera Chorus And Orchestra.

Not to be confused with the Decca Tollington Park Studios: purely a recording suite.
