Transfer from Hampton (TW12) to Stansted Airport
A one-of-a-kind attraction in Hampton is the Astoria recording studio. Basically, this is a unique grand houseboat transformed into a recording studio. The owner of the houseboat and the recording studio is David Gilmour, the famous and talented Pink Floyd guitarist. The boat was purchased in 1986 because he wanted a recording studio that’s surrounded by beautiful scenery and that has many windows and lots of light. Gilmour himself described the houseboat as a 90 – feet long venue with a big lounge, a bathroom, a kitchen and 3 bedrooms. Also, the control room measures 20 feet by 30 feet and it’s incredibly comfortable.
The boat dates from 1911 and it was constructed for Fred Karno, an impresario. The design of the boat allows for a 90 – piece orchestra to play on its deck. Parts from “The Division Bell” and “A Momentary Lapse of Reason”, the last Pink Floyd albums, were recorded at the Astoria. “On an Island”, Gilmour’s solo album, was also recorded on the boat. The Astoria Houseboat features state of the art studio monitors, speakers, subwoofers, cables, recorders and mixing consoles.
