Best of the west
Our centrally located London studios are tucked in three railway arches near Latimer Road station. In fact, you've probably trundled over them on the Hammersmith and City or Circle line trains...
Long before film buffs flocked in their thousands to the locations featured in Hugh Grant's Britcom classic, the area had crafted a glowing reputation as a melting pot for musical talent. Testament to this is Notting Hill Carnival, Europe's largest annual street festival and a delirious celebration of British culture attracting millions across one single weekend each year.
It's business as usual throughout the year for true wax aficionados. Get clued up with Ladbroke Groove!, an essential piece of suggested reading detailing the heritage of local legends like Honest Jon's Records and more contemporary spots like Rough Trade West.
