According to the Financial Times, the iconic London recording studio Abbey Road has been put on the market by EMI music group. EMI purchased the property at 3 Abbey Road for £100,000 in 1929 and transformed it into the world's first custom-built recording studios.

Among other high-profile recordings that have taken place at Abbey Road studios are Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, and film scores for Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
