If you’re a fan of The Beatles, Hilton Honors has just added a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
As part of their Experiences programme it is offering you the chance to commemorate the 50th Anniversary anniversary of The Beatles’ Abbey Road album on Thursday 26th September 2019 – at Abbey Road Studios itself!
The event takes place in Studio Two, where Abbey Road was recorded. It includes a cocktail reception as well as an “immersive playback” of a newly remixed and unreleased version of the album.
A recreation of the 1969 recording will also be set up, allowing you to explore original instruments and equipment as well as a visit to the control room, where the record was made.
There are 44 packages available, spread evenly across a 12pm and 2:15pm session. Each package is for two people and costs 80,000 Hilton Honors points. Here are the links:
80,000 points is a lot, but if you’re a fan of The Beatles you may find this good value. We expect packages to sell fast – previous experience suggests that unique events such as this are very popular, and this is about as exclusive as it gets.
If you do not have enough points to purchase the package, you can buy 80,000 Hilton points outright for $800. This is obviously not cheap but may be worth it to you – unfortunately there is no ‘buy points bonus’ running at present.
