Excellent new home of the BBC. Once isolated as the anchor development it is now the Hub of a busy new commercial centre. Futurist meeting pods. Studios with great views of the quays. S world away from oxford road studios.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour which tools to a variety of studios within the BBC. It was made more enjoyable by the enthusiasm and humour of our guides, Tommy and Julia.

Pre-booked the BBC media 'tour' and very much enjoyed it. Two very upbeat and humorous guides took us around a number of buildings and studios including BBC radio 6 and Blue Peter studio. Finished up at a 'mock up' studio where visitors can 'present' Breakfast and the Weather. Children loved tat bit. Found the whole thing very enjoyable and good... More

We recently attended the above tour with our 8 year old daughter. The tour was well organised and the two guides were fantastic, giving information in an interesting and humorous style. The tour lasted 90 minutes and all children were given the opportunity to participate in the various activities on offer. We booked onto the tour directly from the BBC... More

It was really interesting to go round the different buildings, see inside the studios, etc. We got to make a 10-minute radio play, or have a go at presenting the weather. Interesting to see how small the studios are, compared with how big they look on screen.

The information advises not to turn up early. We duly reported at 12.05 to be told that the recording area was already full !! What is the... More

As a past BBC presenter I would be biased, I worked at the old building in Oxford Rd not at this super duper one although I am sometimes on the 'other side of the microphone at the new one' I still get a thrill going into this fab building.

A Question of Sport with Sue Barker, Phil Tuffnell and Matt Dawson = we were on the right handside this time and to me it still has that flair and spontinaity you would expect from this type of show.
