Lyndhurst Hall

About

Built in 1884 by Alfred Waterhouse, architect of the Natural History Museum, Lyndhurst Hall is now one of the world’s largest recording rooms. The live area accommodates a full symphony orchestra and choir simultaneously, with an inspiring acoustic that musicians love. The flexibility of the space is perfect for film scoring, orchestral recordings and live performances. Since Sir George Martin opened Lyndhurst Hall in 1992 the music recorded here has been heard in cinemas and homes across the globe.

Among the Oscar-winning and nominated works recorded in the Hall are the scores for Atonement (Dario Marianelli), How to Train Your Dragon (John Powell), The Grand Budapest Hotel (Alexandre Desplat), Interstellar (Hans Zimmer), Mary Poppins Returns (Marc Shaiman) and Phantom Thread (Jonny Greenwood). Large-scale gaming scores for God of War (Bear McCreary), Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (Henry Jackman) and Spider-Man (John Paesano) are some of the more recent computer game projects.
