The total territory of the estate is 29 hectares of land. The park is one of the main attractions for fans of The Beatles. After all, the lead singer of the group John Lennon lived here for some time with his wife Yoko Ono. In the 19th century, the estate was owned by the famous philanthropist Thomas Holloway, from whom Lennon bought the house along with the park in 1969. During this time, the estate was restored, and the Hare Krishna community greatly helped the owner. The founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness lived during this period in Tittenhurst at the invitation of the owner himself. With his permission, the Hare Krishnas opened their first temple in Great Britain in one of the premises of the estate. Since 1970, Lennon organized the famous Ascot Sound recording studio on his estate, where he recorded the world-famous music album Imagine. In 1973, John Lennon had to abandon his mansion in favor of Ringo Starr, to whom the first was owed. Starr set up his Startling Studios here. And since 1988 Tittenhurst has been owned by the President of the United Arab Emirates, billionaire Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan, who bought it at an auction for ? 5 million. Today this estate is worth at least ? 30 million. For fans of The Beatles, the Tittenhurst estate also has great symbolic significance. After all, it was here in 1969 that the last photos of the legendary group were taken together. The Liverpool Four was filmed at the entrance to the house. This photo was featured on the cover of the 1970 music collection Hey Jude.
