You Could Spend a Night at Abbey Road
Abbey Road is an incredibly famous recording studio that would be amazing to get a first-hand look bed.   (Airbnb)

For nine years, the Beatles filled Abbey Road Studios with the sounds of some of their most famous recordings. For one night in October, you could fill it with the sounds of your snoring. Travel and Leisure reports Airbnb—in partnership with DJ and producer Mark Ronson—is giving away a one-night stay for four Oct. 15 at the famous London recording studio. Anyone interested in sleeping where hits by Amy Winehouse, Pink Floyd, and Adele (not to mention the soundtracks for Star Wars and Lord of the Rings) were recorded, can submit an essay here about what song they wish they could've seen being recorded at Abbey Road. (According to CNN, Ronson would choose "Tomorrow Never Knows" off Revolver.)

Abbey Road, a nine-bedroom townhome, was built in 1831, Today reports. It was turned into a recording studio 100 years later. It's hard enough to even get inside the famous building, to say nothing of sleeping there. The contest winner, flown from anywhere in the world, will also get to record a song. "Walk the hallowed halls and tap your fingers on the keys of John Lennon’s piano, still marked with cigarette burns dating back to the recordings of The White Album," Airbnb rhapsodizes. "Count 'Time' on the Dark Side of the Schiedmayer Celesta, or just get lost in the knobs and buttons of the studio’s famed mixing board." The contest ends Thursday. (Another unusual offer: to cook in Julia Child's kitchen.)
